Despite having a lot of territory to cover before emerging as a true leader in the luxury space, Cadillac wants to be big in Japan. Today, the brand has taken a small step in the Land of the Rising Sun with the introduction of the Cadillac ATS Luxury Sport Edition. Never mind that the steering wheel is still on the wrong side for our Japanese friends, the ATS Luxury Sport was crafted to take on the popularity of German sport sedans in the country.
There are a few things going on here to make the ATS worthy of its badging. Foremost, the front clip has been reworked with a new lower lip, and the car sits on a set of bespoke 19-inch, V-spoke aluminum wheels.
The suspension setup has been slightly tweaked, too, offering a firmer ride to accompany the standard 2.0-liter LTG turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
The ATS Luxury Sport Edition will launch with only two color options — Sable Black and Crystal White — and carry a price of ¥5,290,000. For us yanks, that’s $49,801 (at current conversion rates)
