2014 Audi RS 5 vs. 2015 Cadillac ATS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi RS 5 than in the Cadillac ATS, due to the Audi RS 5's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Audi RS 5 and the Cadillac ATS in the front seats.

Cost
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). The Audi RS 5 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Cadillac ATS, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi RS 5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Cadillac ATS.

Dimensions
The Audi RS 5 is about the same width as the Cadillac ATS. When looking at overall length, the Audi RS 5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Cadillac ATS.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi RS 5 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac ATS.

Handling
The Audi RS 5 has about the same turning radius as the Cadillac ATS, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi RS 5 has a much more powerful engine than the Cadillac ATS. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi RS 5 and the Cadillac ATS. The Audi RS 5 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Cadillac ATS.

Warranty
The Audi RS 5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac ATS.
