2015 Cadillac ATS vs. 2014 Chevrolet SS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet SS than the Cadillac ATS, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Cadillac ATS and the Chevrolet SS in the front seats.

Convenience
The Cadillac ATS will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet SS, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Whether you pick the Cadillac ATS or the Chevrolet SS, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Cadillac ATS and the Chevrolet SS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac ATS is much slimmer than the Chevrolet SS, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Cadillac ATS, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet SS.

Drivetrain
The Cadillac ATS has much less torque than the Chevrolet SS, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac ATS is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet SS. 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 Cadillac ATS and the Chevrolet SS. The Cadillac ATS has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet SS, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac ATS than that of the Chevrolet SS.
