Which ATS does Edmunds recommend?

Though the entry-level and Luxury ATS trims are very well-appointed, we think the six-cylinder engine is worth the extra cost. It's nearly as fuel-efficient as the turbo four-cylinder, but it performs better and sounds better. You'll have to step up to the Premium Luxury trim to get it, and we think that's good enough for most buyers. Getting this trim's extra safety features is also worthwhile.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

With its eye-catching angular sheet metal, the 2018 Cadillac ATS sedan stands out among today's crop of small luxury sedans. These are qualities to be appreciated if you think that most other car makers utilize conservative styling and design to the point of drabness. A light curb weight, a choice of turbocharged four-cylinder and V6 engines, precision handling and even an optional manual transmission give the ATS legitimate performance chops.

The ATS sedan is respectably comfortable as well. But there are downsides. The ATS sacrifices some function with its tidy cabin dimensions, cramped back seat and small trunk. The four-cylinder sounds raspy and coarse at high rpm. We've also found the touchscreen tech interface (called CUE for Cadillac User Experience) slow and awkward compared to the competition, although a new-generation system in this 2018 model may remedy that.

Success in this crowded, competitive segment is a tall order. The ATS isn't necessarily faster or more efficient than its rivals, which include the Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. But it is competitive, and that's enough to warrant consideration for your next luxury sport coupe.

Cadillac ATS models

The 2018 Cadillac ATS sedan is offered in four trim levels: base, Luxury, Premium Luxury and Premium Performance.

The base and Luxury trims come with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine (272 horsepower, 295 pound-feet of torque) paired to an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional, but only with the automatic transmission. The Premium Luxury and Premium Performance trims come with a 3.6-liter V6 engine (335 hp, 285 lb-ft) paired to an eight-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional on Premium Luxury. Premium Performance trims are rear-wheel-drive only.

Key standard features for the base trim include 18-inch wheels, heated side mirrors, a rearview camera, keyless entry and ignition, power-adjustable front seats and simulated leather upholstery. Tech features include the revamped CUE interface with an 8-inch touchscreen display, OnStar services (with 4G LTE and Wi-Fi hotspot), Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, wireless device charging, three USB ports, and a 10-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system with satellite radio.

The Luxury trim adds adaptive xenon headlights, front and rear parking sensors, leather upholstery, additional front-seat power adjustments, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a navigation system and driver-position memory settings. The optional Safety and Security package adds driver assistance features such as forward collision alert, lane departure warning and intervention, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams and automatic wipers.

Picking the Premium Luxury gets you the Safety and Security package as standard plus a sunroof.

The Premium Performance trim includes all the previously mentioned features, plus high-performance tires, a sport-tuned suspension, adaptive suspension dampers, a limited-slip rear differential, a head-up display and a power-adjustable steering column.

Many standard features on the upper trims are optional on lower trims. The Driver Assist package, available on the Premium Luxury and Premium Performance trims, adds the head-up display, adaptive cruise control and advanced safety technologies, including forward and rearward collision mitigation and automatic emergency braking.

The Track package, available only on the Premium Performance trim, adds a heavy-duty engine cooling fan and upgraded brake pads. All rear-wheel-drive base, Luxury and Premium Luxury trims can add the V-Sport Performance Suspension Upgrade package, which adds 18-inch wheels, a sport-tuned suspension and high-performance tires.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2017 Cadillac ATS Coupe Premium Performance Coupe (3.6L V6 | 8-speed automatic | RWD).


Overallundefined / 5


Luxury sport coupes have long been dominated by BMW and Mercedes. But Cadillac has quietly closed the gap, especially in terms of dynamics. The 3.6-liter ATS Coupe is competitive on the test track and around town compared to rivals, and it isn't even the range-topping version. (That's the ATS-V.)


The ATS can pull hard, or with grace, from a stop, accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in 6 seconds. Thrust tapers off somewhat at this point, but its passing power is plentiful. The tires will light up if provoked. The optional sport exhaust gives the ATS a bit more credit under a full load than it deserves.


Consider the $1,200 Slotted Rotor and Performance Brake Pad package, which feel and perform like sports car brakes with good initial bite and heat resistance for consistency. Yet they remain mild-mannered for city life, not too grabby and requiring little effort. Stops from 60 mph in 109 feet.


Steering is on the heavy and vague side in routine driving. It's accurate and responds quickly without being darty. Sport mode adds heft but no better sense of what the tires are up to. The finish on the wheel itself is too smooth and slides through hands a bit more easily than we'd like.


It's well-balanced and nimble on the road or track. On the skidpad, the chassis is neutral and can be steered with the throttle only. Trustworthy, predictable and controllable. Competitive mode loosens the electronic stability control, translating to confidence during hard driving.


The ATS is easy to pilot around town. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly in most cases, though gear changes come a bit slower than expected in manual mode. Auto stop-start is noticeable but not too abrupt. A tight turning circle and small proportions make for favorable city driving.


The downside to the ATS' focus on handling and performance is a stiff ride that comes at the expense of comfort. Despite their firmness, the all-important front seats are still supportive over the long haul. But it's on the loud side.

Seat comfort

At first, the driver's seat is firm, bordering on uncomfortable. After a while, its stiffness grew unexpectedly supportive. The side bolsters on the seat bottom are wide and accommodating. The adjustable torso supports are small and can be pesty on canyon roads. The rear buckets require short legs.

Ride comfort

This is a firm sports-car ride. Comfort depends on the road surface. Find one with the wrong rhythm of small bumps and it will buck you about considerably. Some bigger bumps will lift you from the seat. Other sport-tuned rides share these qualities, so its ride is not a deal-breaker off the bat.

Noise & vibration

Cadillac is capable of building a quiet cabin. It just isn't the one in the ATS. This cabin is the kind of loud where front passengers have to consciously raise their voices to communicate with backseat passengers. Road noise is the biggest culprit, though the wind and the engine do contribute.

Climate control

The soft-touch buttons make for climate controls that definitely aren't as easy to use as others. But once it's engaged, the dual-zone system works well enough that you can set the temperature and forget about it. Both front seats are heated.


The ATS-V Coupe offers the driver and front passenger a roomy place to sit. But it seems the wants and needs of the styling department have resulted in controls that are unnecessarily difficult to use and a rear seat that's largely useless for anyone this side of grade school.

Ease of use

Everything the driver needs to access is placed logically and easily reached. The major concerns are the center stack controls. They're smooth, slick and polished with no way to tell what's what by feel. It forces the driver to look away from the road to operate.

Getting in/getting out

The doors open wide, enhancing front-seat access. The automatic seat controls operate commendably fast to move the front seat forward and grant entry to the back seat, but it's still a narrow squeeze. Rear passengers require both front occupants scoot their seats forward. Not the best in its class.

Driving position

The steering wheel tilts and telescopes with considerable range. The side mirrors, despite their size, also adapt well to suit driver height. The driver's seat has enough adjustability that most will find acceptable backside-coddling positions. It's easy to set up this cockpit the way you like it.


Much like competitive two-door coupes, the ATS can't be considered roomy. The interior dimensions are sporty-snug for all passengers. Up front you'll be rubbing elbows. Still there is room enough for a 6-footer to fit with minimal compromise. Back seats are best for kids and people you don't like.


The sideview mirrors are very narrow. They are arguably too small, though we were able to find a position to provide adequate visibility. Otherwise sightlines are clear to the front and the sides, but a bit limited to the rear due to the high parcel shelf. The standard rearview camera helps.


Despite recent advances, the Cadillac ATS-V still lacks the solid quality feel found in its Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz peers. Improving its hard plastic interior materials, shift paddles that feel like plasticware, lame gauges and the slippery steering wheel would help a lot.


Sporty luxury coupes aren't known for convenience, but the Cadillac ATS-V forces even more sacrifices due to its lack of cargo and storage space. It can handle most typical day-to-day duties, but other coupes are better suited to weekend getaways and long trips.

Small-item storage

Door pockets, cupholders and the center armrest bin are smaller than some others in this class. A secret smartphone bin with its own USB port is hidden behind the climate control panel. But this feels more gimmicky than useful.

Cargo space

The trunk space is smaller than average, with only 10.4 cubic feet of capacity, and awkwardly shaped. Its trunk liftover height is on the high side, and the broad rear wheelwells pinch the space, too. There is an average-size pass-through when the rear seatbacks are folded down.

Child safety seat accommodation

Each rear seat has two LATCH anchors and one upper tether. But access is tight, so flexibility is a must for any child seat installs. The steeply sloped seat bottoms may cause trouble depending upon the type of seat. Generally speaking, it is no worse than any other coupe in the segment.


The Cadillac CUE touchscreen is as advanced as any of its peers. But its soft-touch sliders and less than intuitive menus offer something to be desired. Fortunately, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration and a Wi-Fi hotspot are standard.

Smartphone integration

There are enough USB ports to handle all your devices, but pairing your phone and accessing the Wi-Fi hotspot do take some digging into menus. Apple CarPlay/Android Auto are now standard and are far easier to use.

Voice control

The standard voice controls are fairly reasonable, but the big payoff comes when you pair a smartphone and access Siri or Google Voice commands by pressing the same button for longer.

4/5 stars, Solid Choice for Luxury Conpact
Luxury 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)
I recently purchased a new 2018 Cadillac ATS after years of service from my Lexus ES 350. There are pros and cons to both vehicles for comparison sake. The Lexus was much more comfortable and smooth, but the performance, handling, acceleration of the Cadillac is far superior. If you are looking for a classic Cadillac cruiser DO NOT BUY THIS CAR. But if you are looking for a fun to drive luxury compact, this car is for you.

2018 Cadillac ATS video

ALISTAIR WEAVER: Today it's the turn of two compact sedans with a sporting twist to go head to head in the Edmunds comparison as the Audi A3 takes on the Cadillac ATS. [MUSIC PLAYING] ALISTAIR WEAVER: Hello, I'm Alistair Weaver, your host, judge, and jury. And I'm joined by Mike Monticello representing the Audi A3 and Jay Kavanagh talking up the Cadillac ATS. The first category up is driving experience. Mike, tell me about the Audi. MIKE MONTICELLO: You know, I think the A3 does more with less. The larger of the two, four cylinders the 2.0 T, only has 220 horsepower versus the ATS's 272 yet it's 1/2 second quicker to 60 MPH. And I also just prefer this Audi engine in general. I mean, it sounds great. There's power everywhere. It's just a nicer, sweeter engine than the ATS which sounds and acts a little more industrial. JAY KAVANAGH: I agree that the ATS Turbo 4 maybe isn't the most exciting engine in the world but it does have a lot of torque in the mid-range, and it's got less turbo lag than the A3. And also, your 0-60 comparison isn't quite apples to apples because you're comparing an all-wheel A3 to a rear-wheel drive ATS. And it's the last gen ATS which has a little bit less power. MIKE MONTICELLO: So you're already calling me a cheat? JAY KAVANAGH: Well, you know I just got to throw it out there. And there's more. You can get a 3.6 liter V-6 that has 321 horsepower. The A3 doesn't have anything like that. MIKE MONTICELLO: I'm going to completely ignore your point and move on to handling. The A3, it's a light and nimble little car, and it drives like it. It just has really nice responsive handling character. And also, I prefer its transmission as well. It's got a s-tronic paddle shift gearbox with really quick shifts, great throttle up downshifts, whereas the ATS's automatic it shifts a little more slowly and it has kind of awkward rev match downshifts. JAY KAVANAGH: Yeah, but you know one thing that the A3 doesn't have that the ATS has? Manual gearbox. I mean it's got a limited slip. It's got real-wheel drive handling dynamics. Crisp steering. This is really the enthusiast pick here. Certainly more so than the A3. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Well, you both make pretty decent arguments. But for its punchy V-6 and these rear drive dynamics I'm going to give a point to the ATS. So, moving on to interior, Jay, let me cue you up. JAY KAVANAGH: Wellput, Alistair. Yeah, the first thing that Mike's going to bring up is the Q multimedia system, which I'll acknowledge the Audi MMI system has the edge over. But Q has really improved over the years. They've done continual updates and it's really much better than it used to be. And while the materials in the ATS aren't quite up to the Audi's level, it's a more stylish cabin. It's got a little bit more flair. But really where the Cadillac shines is in interior space. There's just more room in the front in terms of head room, leg room, and shoulder room in the ATS than the A3. MIKE MONTICELLO: Well, since you already brought up Q and ragged on it for me I don't need to even bother with that. I will admit that the ATS actually has a fancier interior. The A3 is more minimalist in its design. But it's not like it's devoid of equipment. I like to think of it as more beautiful in its simplicity. And there's cool stuff in this cabin. The MMI screen rises up from the dash. And it's got these neat swiveling air vents. And if you opt for nav, you get MMI with handwriting recognition. So you can actually trace a letter with your finger for inputting your destination. ALISTAIR WEAVER: For me, this isn't even close. No one does interiors like Audi in the entire automotive world. So the A3 gets a point. Mike, it might have a great interior and finger recognition technology or whatever it's called but does the Audi represent good value? MIKE MONTICELLO: Well, I think it does. I mean the A3 starts at just under $31,0000 and that's with standard sunroof, xenon headlights, 8-way powered driver seat, and leather. Whereas the ATS starts around $34,000 for the 2.5 four cylinder that, frankly, no one wants. JAY KAVANAGH: Mike, up to this point we've only been talking about the 2.0 T version of the A3 starts at just under $34,000. And in the ATS you're getting more of the real deal hardware that we like. And hey, I like that you don't have to get a sunroof in the ATS. It's an optional thing. And you do, too. MIKE MONTICELLO: I admit nothing. And you notice I'm like a politician. I only give the information that's pertinent to my case. So speaking of which, let's talk fuel economy. The A3 is rated at 27 MPG combined. And if you get the turbo diesel you get 36 MPG combined. The ATS can't come anywhere near that. ALISTAIR WEAVER: For its excellent fuel economy, my point goes to the Audi. So the final round is a wild card where pretty much anything goes. So Jay, what can Detroit offer that Ingolstadt cannot? JAY KAVANAGH: Well, the ATS is clearly the enthusiast choice here. It's correct wheel drive. It has engaging driving characteristics. And you can get it with a stick. The ATS represents kind of a role reversal among the stereotypes we usually have with American and German cars. MIKE MONTICELLO: For me, the A3 is all about variations. You can get it with front-wheel drive. You can get it with all-wheel drive. There's two difference spec turbo four cylinders. You can get it with a turbo diesel. You can get is a convertible. And you can even get it as a high performance S3 version with 292 horsepower. JAY KAVANAGH: Here's something the Cadillac offers that no Audi A3 can compete with and that's the upcoming ATSV version, which will sail right past your Audi S3 on its way to taking down the M3. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Well, like you Jay, I can't wait for the ATSV. And I admire Caddy's spirit and their determination to take on the Germans. But for its extra depth of quality and the extra breadth of its range my wildcard points is still reluctantly going to go to Mike and the Audi. One point. So there you have it. The Audi A3 is a clear winner. And for more information, explore Goodbye.

More about the 2018 Cadillac ATS

The compact luxury sport sedan category is extremely competitive, so Cadillac makes the 2018 ATS enticing for those who prefer aggressive design and sporty handling. The 2018 Cadillac ATS is offered in four trim levels: the base ATS, Luxury, Premium Luxury and Premium Performance. Two engines are available: a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (272 hp) or a 3.6-liter V6 (335 hp).

Most of the technology equipment that is standard on the ATS is optional on its imported competitors. For example, the ATS includes a 4G LTE data modem that lets you create an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot. It also comes with an 8-inch touchscreen center display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a 10-speaker Bose surround-sound system.

One trim above the standard ATS, the Luxury, adds power-adjustable leather seats, heated front seats and steering wheel, driver-position memory settings, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote start and a navigation system. A 60/40-split folding rear seat, a 110-volt outlet, and front and rear parking sensors further increase the ATS' functionality.

The Premium Luxury trim takes performance and safety up a notch and should match up well with premium versions of sport sedans from Germany. The smoother and more powerful V6 engine is standard, as is a Driver Awareness package that includes lane keeping and lane departure assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, forward collision alert and automatic windshield wipers. The Premium Luxury also adds a sunroof, adaptive xenon headlamps and illuminating exterior door handles.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Cadillac ATS?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
