2018 Cadillac ATS-V review: Our expert's take


What it is: Cadillac's compact ATS serves as a direct competitor to the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 for GM's luxury brand. Cadillac boasts that the ATS has near 50/50 front-rear weight distribution and one of the lowest curb weights in its class. Available with rear- or all-wheel drive, the ATS is offered in four-seat coupe and five-seat sedan body styles with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine or a normally aspirated V-6. A high-performance ATS-V is also offered.

ATS-V Performance

I'm totally impressed with the performance of this car, wasn't expecting the performance but, it's crazy that a cadillac is luxury as well as performance all in one! I think this car will be in my garage for years!

Thanks a lot

Have already bought and paid off two cars from there and plan on going back and getting another come tax season! They are super friendly, they work with you and don't hound you for the payments, and when I went to pay my last payment they waived all my late fees which I had a lot of I won't lie. I recommend them to everyone I know that's trying to buy a car but has crappy credit and such like me. Love this place

Amazing car

This car is fun to drive. It turns and stays in the lane. The fuel tank is small if you go fast but worth the fun.
