Motoring TV 2016 Car Of The Year



Celebrating 29 seasons on TSN, Motoring TV, one of the longest-running and most respected Canadian automotive television programs, has selected the Cadillac ATS-V as its Car of the Year for 2016.

“The Cadillac ATS-V takes an award winning car and amps every aspect up to the point where it can compete with any of its peers.  It also speaks loudly to the rebirth of Cadillac as a performance brand.”

Motoring TV also recognized the Cadillac ATS-V as its best new Performance Car.

“The Cadillac ATS-V has street presence and a refined cabin that includes Recaro seats and the ability to record a track session in real time.  However, it is the mechanical aspects that give this car its overt appeal.  A run from rest to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds says it all.”
