MT: 2015 Cadillac ATS Manual 2L Turbo

Changing the engine calibration for more torque was a big part of solving why the first roadtests of the ATS were a step behind the BMWs?

The Cadillac ATS Coupe 2.0T manual matches the manual-equipped 328i's time to 60 mph and in the quarter mile (the Caddy has a 0.5 mph faster trap speed), but the ATS is a full second faster around the figure eight at a 0.13 higher average lateral g. The automatic-equipped 428i is 0.3 second faster to 60 mph and 0.2 second faster in the quarter mile, though its trap speed is 0.2 mph lower than the ATS Coupe's speed. Although the 428i is faster in a straight line, the ATS is still the figure-eight champ, posting a 0.3-second faster lap at a 0.11 higher average g. The ATS took 1 foot longer to stop from 60 mph than the 428i but stopped 3 feet shorter than the 328i.
