A new 30-second spot previewing the upcoming 2013 Cadillac ATS will air on the U.S. television broadcast of the Super Bowl this Sunday. The spot showcases actual testing footage of the car, Cadillac's entry into the super-competitive compact luxury segment.

Cadillac released its new ATS at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, and now the first official fuel mileage ratings are in for the non-turbo 2.5-liter four cylinder, coming in at 22 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.

The ATS gets three engine choices, the small 2.5-liter four-cylinder that makes 200 hp, the same 2.5 with a turbo that puts out 270 hp, and a 3.6L V6 making 318 hp.

When compared to the ATS’s competitors, these fuel numbers don’t quite stack up. For example, the new BMW 328i gets EPA ratings of 23/33, and offers 240 hp and 255 lb-ft.
