As a successor to the scarcely known BLS, the Cadillac ATS is a revelation as the brand’s BMW 3 Series rival. Engine options include a turbocharged 2.0-liter with 272 hp, and a 3.6-liter V6 with 335 hp. Both models are rear-wheel drive as standard (AWD optional) with a six-speed manual; however an eight-speed automatic is available. Heated seats, cruise control, and climate control are notable standard equipment on all models. As for safety, available features include blind spot warning and cross traffic alert.
