About Cadillac CTS
As part of its new image as a performance oriented luxury brand, Cadillac’s ATS is nimble. In fact, the car’s capable handling outdoes many of its European rivals and 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. Rear- and all-wheel drive powertrains are offered. The turbo is quick, but doesn’t feel powerful in everyday driving and got just 23 mpg overall. The six-speed automatic is a step behind the seven- and eight-speeds of most competitors, but a manual is also available. The ride is taut and braking is excellent. However, the touch-based CUE infotainment system, with its flush buttons, is very convoluted and frustrating to use. The interior is well finished, but very snug with a small rear seat and trunk. 2019 was the final year for the ATS. (Source Consumer Reports)
