2014 Cadillac ATS Fuel Economy

7.0
On Fuel Economy

The 2014 Cadillac ATS is one of the better models for fuel economy in this class of sport sedans, but it isn't the efficiency leader.

The base 2.5-liter four in the ATS is rated at 22/32 mpg, with the turbocharged 2.0-liter four earning the same ratings. At the other extreme, V-6 models earn 19 mpg city, 28 highway, or 18/26 with all-wheel drive.

You won't find best-in-class mileage in the 2014 Cadillac ATS, but with the turbo four it's pretty frugal for a sport sedan.

Turbocharged 2.0T models stand in the middle, with ratings of 21/31 with rear-wheel drive, or 20/30 with all-wheel drive. Those numbers are a bit below those of the BMW 328i, which also includes stop-start technology, a potential fuel-saver in sluggish commuter traffic. There's also Audi's latest A4, with an eight-speed automatic--rated at 24/31 mpg.

A diesel version of the ATS is still a possibility for the U.S. market, but Cadillac hasn't yet announced a time frame for its introduction.
