Wheelbase extended by 85mm

Cadillac has released the first official images and details of the ATS-L (long wheelbase) which will be commercialized exclusively in China.

While the regular ATS is being imported, the longer ATS-L will be locally produced and will feature a wheelbase stretched by 85mm to 2860mm, even though reports indicated a 100mm stretch. The overall length has increased from 4644mm to 4730mm while width has gone up by 19mm to 1824mm. Compared to the standard ATS, the L version sits 6mm lower at 1421mm and is equipped with 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels.

The design has remained virtually the same with the exception of the longer rear doors while under the hood is a 2.0 SIDI direct-injection turbocharged gasoline engine with 279 PS (205 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft), enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 6.2 seconds. There's also a V6 3.6 with 320 PS (235 kW) and both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Scheduled to go on sale later this year, the Cadillac ATS-L will not feature the new logo and is estimated to carry a starting price of around 270,000 yuan (about 43,650 USD).

I wonder why they chose to give the car the new front fascia and grille but not the new Cadillac logo/emblem?

The opening image, using the front quarter angle, makes the model look unusual and ungainly. The chrome strip on the doors make the vehicle look longer than it is.
