Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac ATS offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lexus IS 350. The Lexus IS 350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac ATS.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac ATS as you will with the Lexus IS 350, 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 Cadillac ATS is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus IS 350. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Lexus IS 350.

Dimensions
The Cadillac ATS is about the same width as the Lexus IS 350. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac ATS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus IS 350.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac ATS transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus IS 350.

Handling
The Cadillac ATS has a larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Cadillac ATS has less horsepower than the Lexus IS 350, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac ATS and the Lexus IS 350. The Cadillac ATS has significantly less cargo room than the Lexus IS 350, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
