[slider id=111586]

According to a report by Automobile, the 2013 Cadillac ATS complete with the brand’s all-new 2.0L Ecotec turbocharged four-banger is capable of returning 21/31 mpg city/highway. Additionally, the 2.0L turbocharged four-pot is good for 272hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Strictly comparing numbers, Cadillac’s ATS 2.0T undercuts the class leader, the turbocharged four-cylinder 2013 BMW 328i by two mpg in both city and highway ratings. The 328i is rated at 23/33 city/highway. However, it must be noted that the ATS’s 2.0L engine does have an extra 32hp over the BMW, which translates into more horsepower per liter than the current BMW M3, Porsche 911 Carrera GTS, and Lamborghini Aventador.

But the best part, the Cadillac ATS undercuts its entire competition in pricing. For the full fuel economy comparison chart, check it out after the jump.

Refresher: The 2013 Cadillac ATS sedan is available with a choice of three engine units. The based model carries a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder turbo engine making 270-hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.
