Editor's Overview

The 2018 Cadillac ATS-V is the 464-horsepower, track-ready alter-ego of the standard ATS compact-luxury sedan and coupe. It matches or exceeds the numbers put up by the BMW M3 and Mercedes-AMG C 63 -- and for a lower starting price -- but has yet to establish the cachet of its German rivals.

I love my car, not only does it look good, it is reliable, I have not had no one is sure yet since I have bought it, the customer service at the dealership is exceptional, they call me -they text me -they emailed me -they check up on me, I am very satisfied and would highly recommend this for others.

The car is terribly reliable and trustworthy. Mechanisms within the car or somewhat cumbersome but appreciate the brand and its quality. Is practical car with practical price point considering the brand's reputation. I appreciate it sports appeal and ability to newer small roads where I live.

She performs great, spacious and great on gas. Sometimes is expensive when t comes to filling up the tank. Easy clean and great sound system! Upgraded technology makes it easy to use. Quick brakes and pedals. Expensive monthly payments at the moment but not too bad.
