Wrong. Try again.


"While we’re disappointed that the ATS’s most potent engine is denied a clutch and an H-pattern, at least it has an automatic that thinks like a stick. When you grab a shift with either the console lever or a steering-wheel paddle, this transmission does what it can to heighten the fun. It drops gears when you slow for a turn to maximize the blast out of the bend and delays upshifts during acceleration until you pull the trigger or hit the redline. A full manual mode can be engaged by moving the lever to the left. In that setting, no shift occurs without a paddle tap or a lever nudge, even when the tach needle is bumping the rev limiter."
