2019 Cadillac ATS vs. Its Competition

Chris Teague Chris Teague Contributing Writer

The 2019 Cadillac ATS competes against a crowded field of luxury competitors that each offer compelling arguments.

The Audi A5 is recently redesigned with a tech-heavy interior, but conservative exterior.

Like the ATS, the BMW 4-Series is similarly long in the tooth but its turbo V-6 can be a sleeper performance pick—and it offers a manual transmission.

The Infiniti Q60 is elegant, and in top trims is powerful too, but it doesn't pack the same punch as the others.

The C-Class may be the statesman of the group, with sharp style and good engine choices.

The Lexus RC feels heavier than the rest and makes its turbo-4 engine somewhat overmatched in base configurations.
