2013 Cadillac ATS ($33,990)
The newest member of Cadillac’s fleet maybe the smallest, but it certainly isn’t short on tech. At the heart of the ATS is its 8-inch touch screen, which comes complete with haptic feedback and proximity sensors that detect when your hand is approaching. Powering the touch screen is Cadillac’s CUE (Cadillac User Experience) system, which allows you to control your smartphone, check the weather, search for directions and view important driving information on your windshield via the ATS’ heads-up display.
2013 Buick Enclave ($39,270)
Buick is a resurging brand, and what better way to show that off to consumers than to trick out your best-selling luxury crossover? The 2013 Buick Enclave’s new IntelliLink infotainment system sports a 7-inch touch-screen display; Bluetooth and USB smartphone integration; access to Pandora, SiriusXM and Stitcher; and an optional rear-seat DVD system.
But the Enclave’s biggest enhancement is its revolutionary “front center side airbag.” Located between the driver and front seat passenger, the air bag automatically deploys during a side collision, creating a barrier between the driver and passenger that helps prevent injuries.
