It was just a matter of time until Cadillac will go after the 3 Series size market. The larger and more powerful CTS-V is already competing against the BMW M5 and today, a new model has been announced: Cadillac ATS.

The ATS will be built on GM’s new small car platform family, Alpha, and it will be available in both Coupe and Sedan version. The ATS Coupe will be 8 inches smaller than the CTS Coupe.

The ATS will be, in standard format, a rear-wheel drive vehicle, but there will be an option for all-wheel drive.

Due to the shared platform, ATS’ pricing is expected to be very competitive and it’s projected to be a high-volume seller.

Would the Cadillac ATS be able to compete against the 3er, Infiniti G37, Mercedes C-Class or Lexus IS-F? Too early to tell, but we’re looking forward to learn more about this new model and how it would compare against the 3 Series models.
