The 2017 Cadillac ATS is a compact sedan offered in 4 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $35,590. For that price, it mainly competes with the BMW 3 Series, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and the Audi A4. Between 4 trims, the Cadillac ATS offers 2 powertrains. The base engine is a 2.0L Turbocharged Inline-4 engine capable of making 272 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. If more power is required, there is also a 335 horsepower-making 3.6L V6 engine. Both engines are mated to an 8-Speed Automatic transmission. However, the base engine can be equipped with an optional 6-Speed Manual transmission only on the rear-wheel-drive configuration. The Cadillac ATS reaches 60 MPH from zero in 5.7 seconds on its base engine, which gets pumped down to 5.0 seconds with the V6 engine. Depending on the powertrain, the Cadillac ATS can manage a combined fuel economy between 24 and 25 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 11 striking colors the Cadillac ATS comes in really pull you towards itself.
