2014 Cadillac ATS vs. Its Competition

Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The 2014 Cadillac ATS is the brand's best effort so far in challenging the Germans in their home territory of handling and performance.

The Audi A4 is a bit softer and slower, but Audi Connect and Google Earth features give it a tech edge.

The BMW 3-Series is nearly as new as the ATS, but it's grown larger and a touch softer, and loses a bit to the ATS' interior.

Mercedes' C Class is more conservative in styling and performance, but still engaging and fun, and has also recently been updated with new infotainment and a turbocharged four-cylinder option.

The Infiniti Q50 (the all-new successor to the G37 Sedan) promises even more dramatic styling and similarly breathtaking performance, but remains an unknown quantity as yet.
