The Cadillac ATS remains a highly desirable underdog with its terrific ride and handling and willing powertrains. It's as fun-to-drive as any compact luxury sedan.

Pros
Strong engine choices
Excellent handling
Upscale infotainment
Classy feel inside and out

Cons
Cramped back seat and trunk
Pricey with options
Due for a more thorough update

By:

The 2018 Cadillac ATS coupe features the latest generation of the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) tech interface, which promises more intuitive operation and a smartphone-style navigation app. Mechanically, the ATS coupe remains unchanged.

PROS
Takes quick turns and curves with ease, an ace handling machine
Optional manual transmission is rare in this class

CONS
Many interior controls and ergonomics are more clever than functional
Turbo four-cylinder engine is noisy and not that fuel-efficient
The back seat and trunk are small compared to competitors

Although a lot of car shoppers are gravitating more toward crossovers these days, luxury sedans remain essential vehicles for many manufacturers. The 2019 Cadillac CTS is indicative of that, and it features traits Cadillac wants to be known for: unmistakable design, sporty driving characteristics and modern in-car technology.

Pros
All versions have precise handling
V-Sport engine offers outstanding acceleration

Cons
Overly firm ride quality on some versions
Rear-seat room is smaller than some competitors'
Touch-panel center console controls are distracting
Base engine lacks refinement

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2019 Cadillac CTS reminds us just how good sports sedans can be.

Pros
Edgy style inside and out
Sports sedan handling
Thrilling V-Sport
Comfortable front seats

Cons
Shows its age in a few ways
Should have more active safety gear standard
Very thirsty
Expensive with options
