The main focus of the new ATS vehicle and its design is using the Cadillac’s chiseled-yet-sandblasted Art & Science exterior design feature and combining it with much higher and extremely wider specter of appeal. The idea here was to match the sheetmetal that’s a little more flat-and-creased compared to that of the main rivals that the car faces.  The main focus of the car is to perfect the fine details that the car now has and make the focal points of the car near perfect so as to bring the best kind of design that Cadillac has not seen in a while. The former vehicle was not a handsome car at all, so that is why they have made the 2016 ATS as handsome as they could. The lines are crisp and they perfectly meet with the elemental proportions of the car. The car is meant to appeal to a broader range of people and it will enable a much larger market to emerge for the new Cadillac ATS car.

How the new car design can best be described is that it is mainstream looking. This look actually suits the car more than anything else. The vehicles appeal is larger than ever and the people who ride this car will be happier than ever with the look. The thing that made the car look more mainstream is the addition of some smoother lines. The edges of the car are more dull and are not sharp as before. The grille has been shaped into a more streamlined. The ATS has its own take for the look of a sporty sedan car and executes it to perfection. The added LED technology headlights are an added effect which conclude the usefulness of the car as well.

Interior

The interior look has been a bit toned down compared to the modern Cadillacs that have been released recently. The layout is very sound and contemporary looking on the other hand and there are some eye catching finishes and materials that have been incorporated into the vehicle’s inside look. The previous car had a dash that seemed a bit more separate from the driver, well this has been fixed and now the dash has a wrapping look around the driver and enables its use in an easier way. What is the greatest characteristic of the current 2016 ATS interior is that it is more ergonomic and straight forward, and the direct proof is the CUE system, stacked front and center, with improved performance.

Actually, the American approach to providing a luxurious and extremely fit interior has been provide with eh update of the Cadillac ATS. They have managed the interior upgrade with the use of higher-tier wood and metal trim options, while for those who want a bit more there is the added carbon fiber trim as well. Also the dash has a more high tech look to it as it is more modern than before with the added touch sensitive controls which substitute the buttons, haptic feedback system that control the majority of the vehicle, and even a a wireless charging mat available on the inside as well.

Engine

The newest Cadillac ATS has made available no less than three engine choices for the 2016 model year. The base engine option being the 2.5-liter four-cylinder model, then the 272-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and of course the 3.6-liter V-6 engine option as well. The last engine option is also the most interesting and most appreciated one. This engine choice has been reworked and tweaked up to be much more fuel efficient and also provide a power of 333 hp. Also, it is good to know that the 2.0T engine gets stop-start technology this time. For all engine options you have a choice between  a six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmission and also the possibility to choose either rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

2016 Buick Encore

2016 Buick Encore

 The look of the new 2016 Buick Encore vehicle does well to mask its economy car looks and brings us a desing that portrays the car in higher light than you may think of it. Yet the perfromance is something that still gives it away. The car has been well designed this tima and has featured numerous updates and upgrades, but it is still going to have to face some strudy competition.

At its initial release back in 2013, the car was a failry new addition to the small crossover SUV field and was virtually alone  there. But the competitors have tighten their offer now and there are more vehices available now that the car is going against. Not to say that other cars are better but there are many which are more affordable thatn the new Encore, so its price may be somewhat of an issue for the brand.

Yet the car does its best to stay in contention as much as it can. The new 2016 model will come with some luxury car features and comebined it with premium level pricing. It will still have a nice hatchback shape and have a somewhat tepid performance, but there is the Encore Sport Touring model on the way which comes out after the release of this base one which will provide more power for the vehicle.

The design of the new Buick Encore has been masterfully made to disguise its initial boxy shape that the car traditionally sports. It has been added some more aggressiveness to it so the car looks better and more contemporary. This does not mean that the benchmark look of the Encore has been abandoned altogether, but actually that it has been coated with some additional design features that mask the box-like exterior of the car. The front end of the car has been steeply raked, but there are some design parts which look as if the designers have been trying too hard. Well it does the trick and masks the features that are supposed to be hidden pretty nicely, but the looks of it justify its price immensely. It rides on some massive 18-inch wheels which make the car look pretty big.

The front part of the car also has a somewhat bulldog look to it. It actually receives that from its toothy grille that has been added with chrome-trimmed portholes. It also gets that from the large wheels it has received now. But it is the middle part of the car that starts changing the vehicle back to a standard, more traditional 5-door hatchback. The back part of the car has been design in a style which is out of the ordinary for a Buick car and the added spoiler to the end of the roofline makes the car seem much longer than it actually is.

Interior

The inside of the car has more success in providing a premium feel to the car. It is very nice inside we can say and the designers have done a much better job compared with the outside of the car. But there is something that we do not like and that it the center stack. It has been swamped with various buttons, knobs and switches that are supposed to be generally useful but in fact only make a big mess with the interior of the car. The wood trim and the metal accents that have been added actually give the center console a good look and upgrade this cluttered surrounding.

To boost the ambience inside the car, there is a Blue LED light provided. It makes the atmosphere inside the car seem much more high end and does the trick in making you feel much comfortable, but this is the only option light and you do not possess the ability to change it. Buick has also included some interior themes that come available inside, one of the more interesting ones is the all-black monochrome look of the inside. If you want more excitement there is the two-toned brown interior cocoa-colored leather. The choice is yours here as the two available color specters determine the person you are.

Engine

The 2016 Buick Encore does not offer much when it comes to the powertrain. It is a good option for this kind of a car but there is only a single offer under the hood that is provided. The choice fell to the turbocharged 1.4 liter four-cylinder engine that can produce 138 horsepower. The car also combines the powertrain with a singe gearbox choice with is the 6-speed automatic transmission one. The car also has the front-wheel and the optional all-wheel drive. Yet the car carries a lot of weight inside it. A total of 3,200 pounds is a lot even for an engine that produces 138 hp. This greatly affects the acceleration from 0-60 mph and with the front-wheel drive makes it to 9 seconds, while it expands it to 10 seconds with the all-wheel drive.

Release date and price

The 2016 model of the newest Buick Encore vehicle comes to us later this year. We can expect the release date to be made available by the end of this year and after that they will release the release date for the Sport Touring trim that will certainly come next year. The price is as we said not a completely affordable one when it comes to these small SUV hatchbacks and it stands at 24,065 USD base MSRP.

Among the most discerning features of the 2016 Acura ILX is the engine performance. The sedan will derive its power from a 2.4L engine that will be Honda manufactured. This Honda powerhouse will be able to generate up to 200 hp and 180 pounds of torque.

The even distribution of this power will be made through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. This will be indeed an improvement from the previous model which depended mainly on the six-speed manual transmission system.

The Honda engineers manufactured this engine with only one priority-fuel economy. Although no official EPA ratings have been released, we should expect the new 2016 Acura ILX to offer the best return for mpg and 0-60 mph.

The release date of the new 2016 Acura ILX will be late this year or early next year (2016). From the information we have gathered pertaining the msrp, we should expect the car to come with a fair price tag of 18,000 USD. However, you could also lease the new sedan for only $175 per month.
