2016 Cadillac ATS-V

Written by Shaun Keenan on .

$86,060 AS TESTED

The new ATS-V has little more than half the displacement of the even newer CTS-V. It develops 464 turbocharged horses compared to its brethren’s 640 supercharged Detroit ponies (on two fewer cylinders I might add). It starts at nearly $26,000 less than the CTS-V, which has a base MSRP of $91,685. Clearly a little brother, big brother relationship, and there’s nothing wrong with that. You get the ATS-V when you want a kick-ass Caddy that will run circles around the grocery cart return, and the CTS-V when you’re looking for supercar-beating performance for a fraction of the price. We’ve got the full monty on big bro in this month's publication, but understand that ’lil bro is no slouch. He’ll even catch the neigbourhood bully Mercedes C 63 AMG off guard with a few quick jabs, before running off with its lunch money. Cadillac’s Cue infotainment system isn’t as good as the Merc’s, and it’s missing some of the finer finishing touches (nitpicking here), but in no way does that make the ATS-V any less amazing. Dollar for dollar, it just might be the best buy in this entire issue.
