2018 Audi S4 vs. 2018 Cadillac ATS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi S4 than the Cadillac ATS. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi S4, drivers may find the Cadillac ATS a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi S4 as you will with the Cadillac ATS, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 S4 is somewhat more expensive than the Cadillac ATS. 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 S4 and the Cadillac ATS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S4 is a little wider than the Cadillac ATS, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi S4, which is slightly longer than the Cadillac ATS.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S4 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac ATS.

Handling
The Audi S4 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 S4 is somewhat more powerful than the Cadillac ATS.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S4 and the Cadillac ATS. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Audi S4 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Cadillac ATS.

Warranty
The Audi S4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac ATS.
