Cadillac has announced that the 2013 Cadillac ATS, which will be available this summer, will start at $33,990, according to Autoblog. The ATS will go head to head with small luxury cars like the BMW 1-Series and Audi A3. Cadillac claims the ATS will get over 30-mpg on the highway.
The base 2013 Cadillac ATS, which starts at $33,990, comes with a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 200-hp. Also available, at a starting price of $35,795, will be a 270-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which will be available with all-wheel drive and an automatic transmission, both of which aren’t options with the base engine. The top-of-the-line Cadillac ATS with a 320-hp, 3.6-liter V6 engine will cost $42,090.
The four-door sedan Cadillac ATS isn’t a direct competitor for the BMW 1-Series and Audi A3, since the Bimmer is only available in coupe and convertible bodystyles and the Audi is a 5-door hatchback. Despite the fact that the small luxury cars are much more set into their niches than we’re used to with luxury cars, the ATS is more expensive than the base BMW 128i ($31,200 with a 230-hp, 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine) and Audi A3 ($27,270 with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine).
