2018 Acura TLX 2.4 vs. 2017 Cadillac ATS

2018 Acura TLX 2.4 vs. 2017 Cadillac ATS

The ATS is Cadillac’s entry-level luxury sedan that was launched in 2012 as a 2013 model. It comes with two engine choices:
a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder or a 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V-6. The ATS offers the choice of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive
and comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Although the ATS is making some inroads into the luxury market, it lacks some of the fit and finish that buyers expect in this market.
The TLX offers exceptional build quality as well as a number of features you won’t find on the ATS.
