The XTS is not basically a larger ATS. If there is a larger ATS it would be the CTS. The XTS is a front wheel drive car and is the "traditional" Cadillac. The XTS appeals to an older clientele than the ATS just like the 7 Series appeals to an older clientele than the 3 Series. I have one of each (335 and 750) which I select depending on how old I feel when I get up in the morning.
