The Cadillac Alpha Touring Sedan (ATS) is a compact executive car that has been manufactured by Cadillac since 2012. It fits just below the mid-size Cadillac CTS within the lineup.
There has only been one generation since its release. However, there was a platform change made by Cadillac in 2015. This came with some minor exterior and interior styling updates.
It features the typical 2-door coupe or 4-door sedan layout that is typical for executive cars.
As a luxury executive, it goes up against a number of the big German offerings like the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, and Audi A4. The high-performance ATS-V variant competes even more strongly with BMW M3 and the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.
Powertrains for the ATS are all fairly large, allowing for executive-level performance. Engines range from the smallest turbocharged 2-liter LTG Ecotec inline-4 to the 3.6-liter LGX V6. All engines were limited to only petrol configurations.
Depending on trim level, these engines are offered with either rear-wheel or all-wheel-drive drivetrains.
Transmissions included both automatic and manual options. These were all offered in 6-speed configurations. There was also an 8-speed Hydra-Matic automatic offered in select models like the performance version.
Cadillac released four trim levels, starting with Standard, followed by Luxury, Performance, and Premium.
There was also the ATS-V version, which included a host of features to increase performance. The most notable feature in this variant was the twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter LF4 V6 engine.
Another notable version is the ATS-L, which was a long-wheelbase version released in 2014. However, this model was only for sale in China.
The year following its release, it received critical acclaim within North America. The most notable of these awards was the “Luxury Car of the Year” by Popular Mechanics magazine.
