Hoping to build momentum in what is rapidly becoming the world’s largest luxury car market, Cadillac is introducing its compact ATS model into China where it will join the bigger XTS model introduced earlier in the year.
For now, however, the smaller of the two luxury cars will continue to be imported from the U.S. which means buyers will have to pay a premium in the form of import duties. Caddy began producing the XTS model in China this year.
The ATS, which Cadillac bills as a luxury sports sedan, is making its official debut at the Auto Guangzhou 2013 car show in Southern China. The imported model will be offered in four trim levels along with five exterior and two interior color options, and will be priced from $52,000 to $72,000, General Motors officials said.
