Cadillac ATS test drive coming up

I am finally getting to drive the ATS for a week.

The one I got is a 3.6 Liter V6 Premium.
Pretty much the most expensive model you can order.

So far.
Not as impressed as I though I would be...

Sure is a pretty thing. It's supposed to have a phenomenal chassis. Assuming that you don't have the much-ridiculed manual transmission, which I don't believe is available in the 3.6. Interested in getting your thoughts on this ride.

No manual available with the V6. You are right.
So far the 6 speed auto works great (Much better than the Regal's).
But the run flat tires provide a very rough ride.

How are the seats?

Last time I rented a CTS, I had the feeling that I was sitting "on" the seats, rather than "in" the seats.

Do you still get the impression that it's a cheap car that's pretending to be a luxury car? Sure, there's leather everywhere, but the ride is mediocre, the engine is flat, the brakes are numb, and so on.

I know this is an ATS and not a CTS, but it's basically the same size and price as the old CTS.

Seats are fine here. But there are definitely things missing for the price...
