2016 Audi A5 vs. 2016 Cadillac ATS Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A5 than in the Cadillac ATS, due to the Audi A5's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi A5 and the Cadillac ATS in the front seats.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A5 as you will with the Cadillac ATS, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Cadillac ATS.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A5 and the Cadillac ATS. The Audi A5 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Cadillac ATS.

The Audi A5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac ATS.
