2013 Cadillac ATS Vs

2013 BMW 328i xDrive

The BMW 3-Series has always been the premier luxury sport sedan available, but now it has some American competition. Cadillac is competing directly against it’s European foe in the battle of the 2013 Cadillac ATS vs. 2013 BMW 328i xDrive and we’ll tell you who the winner is. The 2013 BMW 328i xDrive is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, as is the Cadillac ATS. While both have a similar engine, the BMW puts out 245 horsepower and the Cadillac ATS has more with 272 hp. Both cars are available with all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive depending on the trim level. While both cars are marketed as sport sedans, the Cadillac outdoes the BMW 3 Series with the suspension. Cadillac has a much harder suspension to help navigate the turns and the BMW is more for nice driving. As far as looks go, the BMW 328i xDrive is a classic look for the European automaker, but in our opinion, Cadillac has out-done them in this regard. The 2013 ATS is very stylish and has really changed the way most people think about Cadillac sedans.

Cadillac ATS vs.

BMW 3-Series

The 2013 Cadillac ATS is one of the premier new luxury sport sedans on the market today. While BMW has been toting the 3-series, and rightfully so for many years, Cadillac has brought a great competitor to the show. When it comes to fuel-economy, the ATS really out-does the BMW 328i xDrive. Cadillac’s sport sedan can get up to 32 mpg on the highway whereas BMW xDrive can only get 25 highway miles per gallon. We don’t look at these cars for their fuel economy, but when you see more horsepower and lower fuel economy, you have to hand it to the American luxury maker. Both cars can come loaded with luxurious features and amenities and there is really no naysaying either in this regard. We love the 2013 Cadillac ATS and think that with style, performance and price, this car is a much better deal than the 3-Series. The competition of the 2013 Cadillac ATS Vs. 2013 BMW 328i xDrive is incredible and we are happy to give the ATS a win today.

2013 Cadillac ATS Comparison

The 2013 Cadillac ATS offers plenty of choices in trim levels and features. Cadillac built this small sedan to offer a new vehicle to the luxury sport sedan segment and we know that they did an amazing job. While BMW has dominated this segment for a long time with their signature 3-series, we are sure that Cadillac will be gaining more headway for a long time to come. Cadillac ATS buyers are coming in droves to the ATS and the car is bringing in many drivers from other brands. Both the 2013 Cadillac ATS and the 2013 BMW 328i xDrive are similar in size almost to the exact detail, and both have a similar engine. One of the biggest advantages that Cadillac has in the ATS over the 3-series is the new CUE infotainment system. There is a lot to love in both cars, but the American luxury maker is building a strong portfolio with their new lineup.

The Cadillac ATS stacks up great against any of its rivals, boasting the lightest body in the class, the ATS has a very well-balanced ride. With a 50/50 weight distribution between the front and rear wheels, the ATS is able to perform extremely well and puts out quite a punch with the turbocharged engine. The steering feel of the ATS is top-of-the-line and while BMW has very good steering as well, we love how the ATS handles corners and turns with its sport-tuned suspension.

Price is always a big factor in comparisons and is no different when comparing the 2013 Cadillac ATS vs. BMW 3-Series. The ATS is typically more affordable than the 3-Series depending on trim level, but when comparing trim vs. trim, you’ll find more for less with the 2013 Cadillac ATS. The 2013 BMW 328i xDrive can be a good deal but we truly believe that if you are looking for a sporty, luxury sedan than you owe it to yourself to check out the Cadillac ATS in Joliet, IL at Bill Jacobs Joliet. Don’t miss out on the next sport sedan to hit the U.S., we’re sure you won’t regret this decision.
