Fuel Economy

Between the Acura TLX s. Cadillac ATS, you’ll find two sedans with great performance. However, the Acura TLX has a significant advantage when it comes to fuel economy.

  • 2019 Acura TLX: The RLX runs on a base 2.4L I-4 engine paired with an eight-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission with both torque converter and Sequential SportShift paddle shifters. This results in a much stronger performance, but also an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 23 mpg in the city* and 33 mpg on the highway*.
  • 2019: Cadillac ATS: The ATS has a base 2.0L turbo engine paired with a standard 8-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain produces an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway with rear-wheel drive.

Interior Space

The Acura TLX may have the edge on fuel economy figures, but between the TLX vs. ATS, which model has the most cabin space? The answer is the Acura TLX once again.

The TLX can seat five passengers, while the Cadillac ATS only seats up to four. The TLX has a passenger volume of 93.3 cubic feet, which surpasses the Cadillac’s 91 cubic foot capacity.

If you’re more concerned about cargo capacity, then the TLX is still the better buy. The Acura TLX has a total of 14.3 cubic feet in its cargo area. That’s over 4 cubic feet of extra space when compared to the Cadillac ATS!
