2014 BMW 328d vs. 2014 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 BMW 328d than the Cadillac ATS. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac ATS, the BMW 328d may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the BMW 328d you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Cadillac ATS, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 328d will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 BMW 328d and the Cadillac ATS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 328d is about the same width as the Cadillac ATS. When looking at overall length, the BMW 328d takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Cadillac ATS.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 328d transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac ATS.

Handling
The BMW 328d 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 BMW 328d is significantly less powerful than the Cadillac ATS. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 328d and the Cadillac ATS. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 328d will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Cadillac ATS.

Warranty
The BMW 328d comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac ATS.
