2019 Cadillac ATS

Pros: Fantastic ride and handling balance; nimble, fun-to-drive character; interior materials and build quality are among the best in class; brisk acceleration with both 2.0T 4-cylinder and 3.6-liter V6 engines; available all-wheel drive; world-class performance of ATS-V model

Cons: Cramped rear-seat space, trunk small for the class

CG Says: The 2019 Cadillac ATS is now only offered in the coupe bodystyle. The ATS sedan has been dropped, as has the 6-speed manual transmission on 2.0L models. However, a manual transmission is still available on the high-performance ATS-V.  Otherwise, the ATS coupe is little changed. ATS is a premium sporty/performance coupe. Available features include autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot alert, wireless cell-phone charging, power tilt/telescopic steering wheel, and Magnetic Ride Control. The ATS is a dynamically impressive car that stacks up very well against its main rival—namely the BMW 4-Series. It has excellent steering feel, plenty of grip, and pleasing power from the turbocharged 4-cylinder and V6 engines. The ATS-V is a ferocious, race-track-ready machine that packs a twin-turbocharged, 464-horsepower 3.6 V6, performance suspension and brakes, and functional styling touches inside and out. We’re not so impressed with the small rear seat. We also wish the excellent Magnetic Ride Control suspension wasn’t only available on the pricey Premium Performance and ATS-V models. The ATS-V costs a pretty penny, but it can run with some of the best high-performance cars in the world.
