It was 2012 when Cadillac launched the ATS, its first-ever compact sedan, in an attempt to enter a market dominated by the likes of the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4. But with the luxury brand set to expand even more by the end of the decade, it seems the ATS will remain the smallest vehicle of the Cadillac stable only until 2016, when the manufacture will reportedly introduce an even smaller sedan. Likely dubbed CT2, according to Cadillac’s new naming strategy, the compact four-door will walk in the footsteps of its bigger brother by entering a segment packed with German-built, premium cars. This time around, however, Cadillac will be targeting compacts such as the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and the Audi A3 Sedan, both of which have been received with great enthusiasm in the U.S.

While the upcoming CT2 is nothing more than a trademark registered with the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office at this point, the company’s current strategy provides a great deal of info as to what this compact might bring to the market. From the already familiar design language seen on the CTS, the new in-car technology, to the powerful, yet still efficient 2.0-liter four-banger, the CT2 is far from being a mystery. I expect the new sedan, which will slot below the ATS, to debut in early 2016 and reach U.S. dealerships for the 2017 model year.
