2018 Cadillac ATS Coupe for Sale
The 2018 Cadillac ATS coupe is worth a look for shoppers in the market for something a bit different in a compact luxury two-door model. Built to compete with its well-known upscale German rivals, the ATS matches them in performance and features while offering its own special brand of sharply creased design. Though the angular style might not appeal to everyone, those who buy into the slab-sided, muscular look will find themselves driving a car that won't be mistaken for anything else on the road.
For 2018, the Cadillac CUE infotainment system is upgraded, and the standard powerplant remains a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 272 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. An available 3.6-liter V6 kicks up horsepower to 335 and torque to 285 lb-ft. The standard transmission for both engines is an eight-speed automatic, although a six-speed manual gearbox can be ordered with the base and Luxury models outfitted with the four-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive. (All-wheel drive is optional with either engine.)
The 2018 Cadillac ATS coupe boasts the comfortable, well-equipped interior buyers expect in this market segment. Premium materials abound, even in the base model, and options such as leather seating, exotic woods and carbon fiber allow for a variety of incremental steps up in luxury. Standard features include dual-zone climate control, power front seats and the CUE system with an 8-inch touchscreen display. Up front, there's more than enough room for the driver and passenger to stretch out, but those in the rear compartment might find the quarters just a tad cramped.
On the road is where the ATS coupe really shines. Shoppers hoping for the stereotypical plush Cadillac ride might be disappointed, but those looking for a modern performance coupe will appreciate the tight handling and firm ride provided by the sport suspension. Acceleration with the turbocharged-four is more than adequate, although some drivers will likely prefer the smoother power delivery of the V6.
Even the entry-level ATS coupe is extremely well equipped, while the Luxury and Premium Luxury trims offer more of pretty much everything. And the Luxury Performance model adds such goodies as adaptive suspension dampers, a limited-slip rear differential and a head-up display. Whatever your preference, Edmunds can help you find the 2018 Cadillac ATS coupe that best meets your needs.
