It handles like an E46...but the ride is rough and harsh.

The interior looks great...but feels cheap.

The chassis is amazing but the powertrain are no so amazing.

It has great technology but the Cue system is an abomination.

Trust me I am not hating on the ATS I think for the right people this will be a great car. I am just not sure they are going to get enough people to switch from other brands.
The E46 did not ride like a limousine so there's that and the interior from what I've seen in person doesn't feel any cheaper than an F30, just different. Cue is not an "abomination" but it needs to be better and the 3.6 powertrain is universally acclaimed as a gem. yes the 2.0T is lacking as is it's transmission which is an issue for an enthusiast who wants a MT. The general public who wants an entry level luxury sport sedan will probably care less unless they just want the badge.
