2016 Cadillac ATS vs. 2016 Chevrolet Volt Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Volt 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 Volt 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 Cadillac ATS will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Volt, 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 Destination Charge for the Cadillac ATS is much higher than that for the Chevrolet Volt.

Dimensions
The Cadillac ATS is a little wider than the Chevrolet Volt, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac ATS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chevrolet Volt.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac ATS does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Volt.

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

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

Utility
The Cadillac ATS has less seating than the Chevrolet Volt, making the Chevrolet Volt the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

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