2016 Cadillac ATS vs. 2016 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review

Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac ATS, drivers may find the Nissan 370Z a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac ATS as you will with the Nissan 370Z, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Nissan 370Z. 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 Nissan 370Z.

The Cadillac ATS is about the same width as the Nissan 370Z. If you go with the Cadillac ATS, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan 370Z.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac ATS transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan 370Z.

The Cadillac ATS has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

The Cadillac ATS has less horsepower than the Nissan 370Z, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

The Cadillac ATS offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan 370Z, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Cadillac ATS will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan 370Z.
