2018 Audi S3 vs. 2018 Cadillac ATS

The beautiful 2018 Audi S3 now has a competitor in the 2018 Cadillac ATS. These two cars are now placed side by side and are among the popular choices for car buyers in Eastchester New York. If you happen to have both in your mind as well, you can seek help from the comparison we have made to see if which one should be your choice.

Design & Style

The sporty 2018 Audi S3 remains to be one of the favorites for luxury car lovers out there. The edgy look on the outside complements the toughness that it exudes. This is a clear example of a car that has been crafted with solidness. The car is also gifted with excellent quality materials which are evident in its interior as well.

When it comes to the 2018 Cadillac ATS, you will notice how it has been perfectly styled by its maker. This sports car also comes gifted with a remarkable interior design. The amount of space is so limited for this car though that passengers will end up complaining after riding one.

Technology & Safety

There is a list of technology and safety features that are packed inside the 2018 Audi S3. One is the presence of a user-friendly MMI infotainment system that is truly dependable at all times. The inclusion of WiFi capability is a plus for this car as well. It also has a retractable touchscreen. Safety-wise, you can count on the addition of blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking for this car.

There are some faults in the 2018 Cadillac ATS when it comes to technology features. This is even if the maker managed to update the system all in all. The update is sluggish for the lack of controls that suit the needs of modern-day car lovers. This means too that the system is not as user-friendly as that of the S3's.


Engine performance is undeniably good on the part of the 2018 Audi S3. This relies on the power given off by its four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine. This is capable of producing power for 292 horses and torque of 280lb-ft. Under the hood of the 2018 Cadillac ATS, on the other hand, you also get a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine to turbocharge the car. This results to a maximum torque of 295lb-ft and 272 horsepower. Despite that, the Cadillac seems to be having problems with fuel efficiency.

The Bottom Line

You really need not look far when looking for the car of your dreams.  The 2018 Audi S3, after all, is an impressive car to bring home with you.
