2018 Audi A3 vs. 2018 Cadillac ATS-V

There are plenty of cars out there waiting for car buyers to purchase them. Of course, a car buyer like you knows what you must do first before investing in one - and that includes doing market research. If you are caught in between the 2018 Audi A3 and the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V, for instance, the next thing you should do is to compare them. This comparison will serve as your guide if this is the case.

Design & Style

One of the best car models from Audi is the Audi A3. This car is definitely one of the best buys you will have if you are shopping for a car for your family. The solid construction is evident on the outside, without sacrificing what you are expecting from an edgy car. Inside it, you will notice how aluminum accents highlight all other materials found inside it. The comfy leather seat is also one to love.

The 2018 Cadillac ATS-V, on the other hand, is considered great too in terms of its exterior design. The interior has also been crafted out of the best quality materials out there. What you will not like is the fact that it does not ooze comfort, which deducts points from its supposed impressive interior.

Technology & Safety

There is also an impressive set of technology and safety features for the Audi A3. Topping the list is the remarkable and user-friendly MMI infotainment system. This infotainment system is more than just world class. It also provides support to smartphone integration and the car's NAV system. Driver aids range from the basic ones to the more advanced features like automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and blind spot monitoring.

As for the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V, you will also notice the update it made on its infotainment system, which works well with its smartphone integration capabilities. The one thing you will be dismayed about is it lacks the same flair offered by its opponents. You will not be wowed by the driver aids as well.


The 2018 Audi A3 relies on the power given by its four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine under its hood which maximizes results of up to 220 horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque for the car. In the case of the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V, you will get 464 horsepower and 445lb-ft of torque as a result. This is because it has a V6 engine. Note that the engine of the ATS-V is hungry for fuel thus sacrificing efficiency for that result.

The Bottom Line

With this comparison, it has become clear why many car lovers go for the 2018 Audi A3 over the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V. Buying the Audi will be more than your money's worth.
