Cadillac ATS and CTS are currently in production for the new 2017 model year, offering some key refinements that need to be addressed. The new trim levels highlight models' class-leading muscular stance and driving dynamics more than ever before.

By the way, Cadillac CTS Sedan is in its third generation already and has received some important accolades. It has been named by Car and Driver "10 Best" for three years in a row now, while Motor Trend said that in 2014 it is the "Car of the Year" giving it the respectful award. As for the ATS product line, we should say that it is brand's most compact and sporty entry! It won both the Esquire Car of the Year and the North American Car of the Year award back in 2013.

The Carbon Black sport package is for those always looking to get more from life. It adds two new exterior colors and wheels. Updates have been made to the CUE infotainment system, which now features many goodies as a standard, for instance: myCadillac Mobile App, Teen Driver and Cadillac Collection.

To sum up, the refinements that Cadillac makes for 2017 model year are not big, but they are most certainly satisfying, bringing more convenience and style to the future owners.
