Default Infiniti Q50 vs new Cadillac ATS

I test drove an ATS and I can say it's the best Cadillac I've ever driven. Very comparable to the 3 series BMW. How does it hold vs the tried and true Nissan V6 platform though?

People can't stop saying great things about the ATS. It's right up there with the Q50 with my favorite of the new cars in the segment this generation.

I've only sat in one at the NAIAS, but I haven't had the opportunity to drive one yet..

It'll be interesting to see an ATS being thrown against a Q50 or Q60 in a future comparison. The ATS comes with a 2.0L turbo and a V6. I'd say the V6 would be a fair comparison.

Yeah...but it looks like option for option, the Q50 might actually be cheaper than a comparable ATS V6...

But, we'll see how it all balances out on the track.

I think options for options of "bang for your buck" features vs price. Nothing beats the G37 and now the Q50. I am interested in the performance aspect of the ATS though. People who drive it seem to like it more than the 3 series BMW.

Cadillac has done an amazing job with the ATS, they built it to rival the 3-series and they came through on their word. It's a true 3-series competitor. How I see it, Infiniti has a lot of catching up to do to keep up with Cadillac, BMW and Lexus with their IS.

Infiniti has the potential, now to see if they will put it to work.

the Cadillac ATS 2.0L Turbo AWD premium will be a good competitor to the Q50's AWD model. So far the ATS sits at $50k, not sure what the Q50 will be but if priced right it will be tough to decide between the two.

Might come down to which brand YOU prefer rather than what each car offers.

I think performance wise the V6 ATS would be more comparable. The 2.0T is impressive but it isn't a V6 that is for sure.

I agree with that as well, The V6 Cadillac ATS higher trim would be more comparable to the Q50 rather than the turbo 4 banger.

That's interesting to hear about the ATS. Do you have a link?
