Pros
Upscale cabin
Lots of features

Cons

Well-equipped for the price, especially in the base Premium trim
Vast amount of legroom allows all passengers to stretch out

From acceleration to handling, the Cadenza isn't much fun to drive
Trunk is smaller than rivals, and rear seats don't fold down
The ride isn't as composed as in segment leaders
Headroom is a bit tight for tall occupants (especially with sunroof)

Excellent crash test ratings

Cons
Quirky and distracting infotainment system
Slim back seat and trunk
Mediocre gas mileage

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: 
thecarconnection.com

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
