I agree with you that the 320i will put a huge amount of pressure on the ATS, but you're absolutely wrong that 90% of ATS sales are the 2.5. Not even close. The 2.0 turbo is the best seller, as they've been offering it on a $299 lease (only around $20 more per month than the 2.5 lease). Not that many buyers in this segment are unwilling to spend twenty bucks a month for a much better engine.

Wouldn't be surprised if pressure from the 320i forces Cadillac to cut the price of the ATS and offer some variant of the 2.0 turbo as the standard engine.
