Any idiot who asks "why would you get a V6 with an awesome turbo I4?" is not worth listening to.

put a diesel engine from OPEL in this car and sell it in europe. For sure it will outsell the lexus IS because there's only a hybrid or gas version of that car.

It was either this or a BMW 3 series. After about a week of debating I went with this because its DIFFERENT and looks so amazing. Haven't regretted a thing. I love it and am proud to drive it.

I just leased a 2014 turbo, very impressed.  The car is light and you can feel it while accelerating and breaking.  The turbo kicks in nicely, impressed my 18 year old nephew on PCH and avoided an accident with smooth breaking.  The car is cheap compared to anything else in it's class, $190 less per month than a BMW and the gas mileage is great.  The fuel tank is small, smaller than my Accord, but I get more miles per fill-up.  The best thing about it, one doesn't see nearly as many as them as a BMW or Lexus, stands out more, I like that.

I liked the new ATS,  Some things do bother me- 1) Cadillac scrapped the 2 door coup version  2) Cadi also scrapped the Convertible version. 3) Cadi scrapped the ATS-V series.  If Cadi wants to compete with BMW they need to offer us more options as does BMW!  Some people like me prefer a 2 door coup convertible which sends me to the BMW.  Not sure I would pay the extra for the M series but for those who would Cadi should offer the ATS with the V series. Just my views!

Honestly. So many American fan boys in the comments. Yes they have improved and it is a great car (I know I've test driven one for a week) but they still have distance to match German rivals, Lexus is not even in here. And people claiming it has better interiors as well? You've obviously not owned an equipped Audi nor Mercedes.

Not compared to the competition. Get a base 3 series, add one feature, and the price is over 45k.

Cadillac is world class now. It's resale value is higher than Mercedes, Audi, Porsche, Lexus, Acura, Rolls Royce, Infiniti & is tied to first place. The resale value for the Escalade IS number one of all luxury SUVs. The new Cadillac ATS is seeing 70% of its sales coming from German car owners. The Cadillac XTS offers PREMIUM imported Italian leather on both sides of the seats, dashboard, & door panels & the ceiling is covered in Italian suede. It just knocked Lexus off the #1 spot for quality.

Compared to German and Japanese cars, this has the BEST quality interior in the world. Cadillac is world class now. Get used to it!
Comment from : Ron Eames


K.M. Church
Cadillac ATS offers premium imported Italian leathers whereas the German competition uses chaep plastic and even cheaper vinyl. Real wood is used compared to plastic on the German and Japanese cars too. Cadillac is world class now. Get used to it.
Comment from : K.M. Church


K.M. Church
CUE does NOT suck. Only the people testing them think that. 95% of Cadillac's customers actually like it BETTER than the arrangement they were used to in their former foreign cars they traded in for the Cadillac. You do understand that 70% of all new Cadillac ATS sales are from former German car owners, don't you?

I LOVE that GM built Caddy's 320 horsepower 3.6L V6 to run on 87 octane. Every other car in this segment makes less than or equal to this power and expects to be fed 91 octane. I HATE Caddy's CUE system because not only is it standard on the higher trim levels but it is horrible to use. The buttons are too small and hard to find in a hurry and they require too much eyes-off-the-road time to operate. I don't own an iPhone or Pad so i don't want to deal with a touch screen while driving.

I love the BMW 3 series but, where I live in California, its kind of a girl's car. Young girls get them for graduation presents and they are everywhere. The Cadillac is more of a man's car.
Comment from : MrWhiteshark8


cadrolls
What you wrote could also be said of any car though. Different quality plastics? Plastic is plastic. Eventually, you will come to the conclusion that the Cadillac has not only come up to the European levels of quality but, has superceded those levels for LESS money. Why pay more to get less?
Comment from : cadrolls


CycoWarriorx
After driving both the CTS V coupe and sedan, both locally and at GMs proving grounds in Michigan, yes, I can say their materials are questionable. More on that later. Not limited to door rattles (coupe) and a "history" of less than reliable performance, again, Caddie has a ways to go. Everyone uses plastics, but it's the quality of the plastic that's being used that makes a difference. Insurance? BMWs are valued/cost more than Cads, which makes insurance more expensive. Parts are parts...
Comment from : CycoWarriorx


cadrolls
Cadillac is in the top 5 when it comes to reliability and safety. Materials? While BMW and Mercedes offer cheap plastic and vinyl as standard, Cadillac offers imported Italian leather on both sides of the seats, door panels, and dashboard. Italian suede covers every inch of the ceiling in the XTS Platinum Edition too. $1,200.00/year, on average, for insurance with the Cadillac while the insurance for the BMW will set you back $2,900.00/year as BMW's parts are up to 4 TIMES more expensive.

AutoGuide - great work. My concerns with "Caddie" are 1. Build quality (as John pointed out below) and 2. Material quality. We won't even get into the workmanship and durability factors. Caddie has made great strides but it still has a way to go. They're not at the point where I'm ready to give up my "Ultimate Driving Machine." Great review tho.

What about the turbo lag and the sound of the engine/exhaust? I've heard the v6, does the 2.0t suck in that regard? Which is the better car for everyday street, not track?

Given the choice between flying and driving, I prefer to drive too. I used to fly down to Washington D.C. to do clothes shopping but, most everywhere else I went, I drove. My Grandparents had a 120 acre summer home in Vermont and each day, we'd get into their 1973 Chevrolet and drive for hours to different places. Stock car races each Thursday night at Thunder Road in Barre, Vermont or Catamount Statium in New Hampshire. One Uncle owned H&O Taylor Chevrolet in Wells River, Vermont. He was cool!

I know. The younger people have it tough because of the cost of gas. When I was your age, it was never the cost of the gas that was of any concern but, the pain of stopping to fill up. When I graduated highschool, gas was 59.9 cents a gallon. $20.00 could go a long way. My parents had it even better when they grew up in the 50s with gas at .20 - .25 cents/gallon. My Grandparents bought my Mother a Nash Metropolitan for her birthday. She said the top speed was 80 mph but, $10.00 would go all day!

A little secret to keeping your leather seats nice. Baby oil. On a hot day, give them a good coating and then, a few hours later, wipe off the excess and the seats are good to go for another 6 months to a year. There is no alcohol in the baby oil so, there is nothing to dry out the leather. I use lavender scented oil.

cadrolls
Thank you. I wish you had written that in the first place. My sentiments, exactly. :)
Comment from : cadrolls


RedShiftRider
But this is just getting ridiculous. I think one thing we can agree on is that the Cadillac nameplate is as hallowed as any on the planet, and they desperately need to return themselves to former glory. With this ATS, the new Alpha platform as well as the forthcoming Omega platform. Cadillac has the potential to have a bullet aimed at every competitor in each segment of the market. A redesigned CTS, and a possible flagship model based off the Ciel concept. Things are looking up for Cadillac.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


RedShiftRider
Well, my car is a two door coupe with bucket seats in the back. Not exactly the first choice for a late night encounter, or any encounter for that matter. Which might explain how the leather rear seats in my now 9 year old car are immaculate.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


RedShiftRider
Well you're correct there. I'm barely legal to drink but how is that relevant. I would love to say that I could do any of those since the sole reason I bought a 6-speed manual V8 is because I genuinely love to drive, but unfortunately the world is a different place now and that really isn't possible for the average person anymore. I also took look trips growing up, the family preferred to drive rather than fly. But as an adult my budget doesn't really permit that. Sad really.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


cadrolls
My mistake. I meant the 1970 Eldorado. 400 h.p. and 535 pounds of torque. They were NO slouches when it came to speed either.
Comment from : cadrolls


cadrolls
You must be well under 30 years old then. When I was growing up in the 1970s, everyone we knew took long trips. I still do. When I purchased my Firebird in the 1980s, I put 52,000 miles on it in 8 months. One of my friends put over 100,000 on his Crown Vic in under a year, just joy riding. I still do 600 miles in a day on ocassion so, I know about what makes a car comfortable. I used to go bar hopping in Montreal frequently. It was 396 miles each way. New York each Friday @ 110 miles each way.
Comment from : cadrolls


RedShiftRider
Who these days takes "many" vacations. And surely NOBODY buys a car solely because it's comfortable on long trips. That's my whole point here.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


cadrolls
I take it that you don't take many vacations where driving for long periods of time is required.
Comment from : cadrolls

What is wrong with having a car that is comfortable AND fast too?
Comment from : cadrolls


RedShiftRider
Once again, who in their right mind is ONLY concerned about a car that's a "great 14 hour cruiser"? I don't know about you, but I sure as hell don't drive 14 hours on a regular basis. I won't deny the things were comfortable, but that's their ONLY strong-suite. There's a million cars (including mine) that are a million times better all-arounders. Cars that settle down and are perfectly comfortable, but will set your ass on fire with the press of the pedal. If I want comfort I'll take the train.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


RedShiftRider
It's rated at 345 and 500, actually. But what does any of that matter in that car? It NEEDED that much power just to drive at highway speeds. The things were boats.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


cadrolls
By the way, the Eldorado of 1971 had 400 h.p. and 535 pounds of torque and the Fleetwood with that engine choice had a trailer towing capacity of 7,000 pounds. No car being built today, ANYWHERE in the world, can say the same thing.
Comment from : cadrolls


cadrolls
VINTAGE Cadillacs are neither "vile" nor "horrible". You apparently have never taken a 1976 Fleetwood for a 10 hour journey or you would run your present car off a cliff. In 1973, Lincoln challenged Cadillac for ride comfort. Cadillac responded in 1974, 1975, and finally, in 1976 with what many consider to be the finest riding car ever built. It was a true 14 hour cruiser whereas each passenger could actually sleep while going down the highway at 75 mph with ZERO vibration on the door arm rest.
Comment from : cadrolls


RedShiftRider
Who ever said anyone would rather have a Prius over a Cadillac? I compared the Prius to an old Cadillac because they're both vile and terrible cars. Built by and for people who have never looked at a car as anything more than a machine to get them from A to B. They're both horrible. New Cadillacs? They have a character and are likeable if albeit slightly flawed. But I'd prefer to drive my 400hp V8 over both of them any day.

It's bullshit and you know it. Now quit talking shit.
Comment from : RedShiftRider

Also, WHO THE HELL IN THEIR RIGHT MIND would rather have a sickening Prius over a Cadillac? Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwe I'd kill myself if my car has less then 200 h.p. and weighed less than 3,800 pounds.
Comment from : cadrolls


cadrolls
I wrote 1971. Not 1973. I had also changed the exhaust system to a larger diameter too but, it was STILL under 8 seconds without the change. Stop lying. 1973 is not 1971. The Fleetwood of 1973 was slightly detuned and weighed more than the 1971 too because of the added weight of the new 5 MPH bumbers.
Comment from : cadrolls


RedShiftRider
Oh right, even though the 0-60 time on a '73 Fleetwood 472 is well over 10 seconds. You're an idiot. I mean if you're going to continue to keep lying out your ass and spewing nonsense. At least make it believable. Those cars are land yachts, they aren't fast. Plain and simple.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


cadrolls
0 - 60 in my 1971 Fleetwood Brougham was 7 seconds. It weighed over 5,000 pounds. What is the Prius's 0 -60 time?
Comment from : cadrolls


RedShiftRider
A Toyota Prius could blow the doors off a Brogham, those things were catastrophically slow. I call bullshit. And 6 police chases? What do you think law enforcement is a game?
Comment from : RedShiftRider


RedShiftRider
And you must be over 50 and have never driven a car faster than 60 mph.

You must be under the age of 30 or you would know what we lost.

Okay you're just talking nonsense now.
Comment from : RedShiftRider

My 1971 Fleetwood Brogham did 0 - 60 in 7 seconds FLAT! 375 h.p and 535 pounds of torque. They floated down the highway and around corners -- all 5,300 pounds of it -- with EASE! The seats were like the best furniture too. They were true 14 hour highway cruisers.
Comment from : cadrolls


RedShiftRider
I said it's ONE of the most comfortable. Not THE most comfortable. And seriously? Those things are ungodly horrid. 0-60 in what, 5 days? After 14 hours of driving I'll only have made it 100 miles and will be in probably the most embarassing car this side of a Prius.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


cadrolls
Your 2004 GTO is the best riding car you have ever been in? You don't get out much, do you? Try riding in a 1976 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham sometime. After 14 hours of driving, see how you feel then.
Comment from : cadrolls


cadrolls
Given that they are STILL the best, I have no choice but to stick up for them. I would STILL rather be in a Cadillac for 4 hours compared to any other car being built.
Comment from : cadrolls


RedShiftRider
Wait, I thought you were sticking up for our cars? Not all cars these days are uncomfortable. I drive an '04 GTO that albeit is 9 years old now and is actually Australian not American, but it's one of the most comfortable well riding cars I've been in.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


cadrolls
You want high quality cars --- fine. Don't complain about the economy. Don't complain about how expensive your bext car will be. Don't complain if YOU lose your job. Don't complain when you develop severe back problems from the firm springs and hard seats. While you are sitting at home because you can't afford to go out like we all could at one time, PLEASE, don't complain about it. You demanded it by changing the way we did business. Don't complain.

Reliability and dependability? American cars had an obsolescent rate that was lower than the Europeans because it kept MILLIONS of Americans working. General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler could've built cars that lasted 300,000 miles or more YEARS ago. Why didn't they? JOBS! Germany and Japan built longer lasting cars because they're small countries and could profit off that when selling to larger countries. In order to compete, we do the same now. Result? EXPENSIVE cars w/HIGH unemployment.
Comment from : cadrolls


cadrolls
Motor Trend, Car and Driver, and Road and Track constantly ridiculed American cars because they were softly sprung compared to the firm ride of the European cars. On the test track, a firm ride does indeed make the car handle more crisp. In REAL world driving though, there's VERY little difference in regards to safety between a soft ride versus a firm ride. Americans don't drive on test tracks. We drive on REAL roads with REAL potholes and REAL bumps and dips in the road. We NEED softer springs.
Comment from : cadrolls


cadrolls
These are the facts: We went from having some of the most comfortable, prettiest, quietest, BEST riding cars found anywhere on earth to having the worst riding cars ever built with seats that are hard as a rock! Our cars used to be 10 hour highway cruisers which allowed a family to actually enjoy their trip for long periods of time to having cars that you want to get out of after 4 hours on the open road. That is NOT progress.
Comment from : cadrolls


RedShiftRider
And don't think I'm hating on Cadillac or American cars. I love the American auto industry and Cadillac itself, why else would I be on a video for the ATS? But I'm not going to sugar coat it and blindly say Cadillac is producing the best cars in the world, because they simply aren't. People like you claiming they've surpassed their competitors is what's going to make the products fail. If you aren't critical of a product that's in need of improvement it will never improve.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


RedShiftRider
Cadillac HAS HAD or WILL HAVE it, BUT DON'T HAVE IT NOW. On what was it, the world's most technologically advanced car? Okay so there's one contradiction. America did not invent all of those things. I will say Cadillac DID develop and introduce the first car with the basic layout that we know today and they have contributed a lot to the automotive world. But they need to step it up another notch to be a world class competitor.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


RedShiftRider
Yeah, clearly you're not absorbing any part of this argument, it's like talking to a brick wall. We've established the Europeans are more expensive. I'm talking about quality REGARDLESS of cost, COST IS NOT AN ISSUE HERE. I'm talking only about quality and features. Cadillacs are less expensive because they have half the options and toys of the competitors.
Comment from : RedShiftRider


cadrolls
Cadillac developed the very FIRST night time vision system but, scapped it as the customers didn't like it. As far as the rest of what you mentioned, Cadillac has had or will have it. Without American inventions, your cars would not have: Electric starters, headlights, power windows, locks, brakes, radios, A/Cs, all steel bodies or fully enclosed bodies, automatic transmissions, tinted and safety glass, and the list could go on and on and on and on! Cadillac for the WIN!! :)
Comment from : cadrolls


cadrolls
Cadillac is in the top 5 when it comes to quality. There is no advantage in owning an over-priced German or Japanese car. With the extra money they charge, even if I did have to make a repair, I would STILL be saving a TON of money. No repair on the Cadillac would be even CLOSE to the extra money that the Germans and Japanese charge for their cars. Who is the idiot now? LOLOLOL :):)
Comment from : cadrolls


RedShiftRider
They should pay more because they're $30,000 better. Get it out of your head, Cadillac does NOT offer more. What Cadillac has infrared imaging cameras? night vision capability? mulitple point of view cameras? Radar-guided cruise control? 14 way power and massaging seats? digital television capability? Automatic braking for accident avoidance? That's just A FRACTION of the toys you get from the competitors. Completely and utterly superior. And handle better? Good luck.
