Modern interior, all style, no substance
Thanks to the addition of CUE, which also controls audio and climate control, the center console is clean and free of buttons. In comparison to its German competition, the ATS looks modern, but make no mistake, looks don’t make the interior more ergonomic. Without knobs and the iDrive-like controls, the controls in the ATS can be vague, meaning you have to see what you’re poking at, and how much you’re adjusting certain settings.
We’re eager to see an improved version of CUE in the near future, but until then, there’s little reason not to recommend the ATS, and recommend it highly.
