Cadillac ATS Overview

Offered in rear- or all-wheel drive, the ATS has nimble, capable handling that makes it a treat to drive. Three engines are offered: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, a 3.6-liter V6, and a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder. The turbo is quick, but doesn't feel powerful and got just 23 mpg overall. The six-speed automatic is a step behind the seven- and eight-speeds of most competitors. A manual is available. The ride is taut, and braking is excellent. However, the CUE infotainment system, with its flush buttons, is very convoluted and frustrating to use. The interior is well finished but very snug. First year reliability of the 4-cylinder turbo has been average, but the V6 is below average. Coupe versions will be on sale this summer.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
