Exterior

The 2014 ATS features a pointed, black, and chrome grille with the same detail found in the lower bumper grille area. The bumper has a sporty appearance with sculpted corners that reach down and forward from the main structure.

It has the standard premium vehicle appearance with a low hood and extremely short front overhang. The profile view is low slung and sleek with an emphasis on the cab rearward design. The side fenders show off the 17 inch wheels.

The trunk area is reminiscent of the early 1990's Seville in its elegance. The vertical LED taillights put on a lightshow at night that is unsurpassed in its intensity.

Interior

Inside, you have your choice of either black or tan leather interior and your choice of wood inlays or brushed aluminum accents. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather and has mounted paddle shift controls along with other functions that include audio level and phone access.

The inside rear view mirror is frameless and has an auto dim feature.

All ATS models come equipped with an 8" CUE central touchscreen. The optional navigation control is a must to complete the system. The automobile seats 5 comfortably with 33.5" of legroom in the back.
