2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan vs 2017 BMW 3 Series
AwardsWhy did Consumer Guide Automotive name the 2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan a Best Buy for the fourth year in a row? Because the ATS "offers a fantastic combination of upscale luxury trimmings and true sports-sedan athleticism." We couldn't agree more1.
Cadillac has made safety a top priority, and it shows: the 2017 ATS Sedan has earned a coveted 5-star side crash and rollover rating from the NHTSA2.
FeaturesWhile they're not as popular in more mild areas, in frigid climates many drivers find heated seats, a standard feature on the 2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan3, quite necessary. If you want heated seats on the 2017 BMW 3 Series4, though, you'll have to pay extra for them.
Is it possible to get increased visibility while using less energy? With the HID Headlights that come standard on the 2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan5, the answer is yes. On the 2017 BMW 3 Series, those brilliant, energy-efficient HID headlights are a pricey add-on.
The refinement and luxury of leather seating is a standard feature in the 2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan5, but it's only available as an add-on option in the 2017 BMW 3 Series4.
Getting where you're going has never been easier, with turn-by-turn directions and other features of the 2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan's6 standard on-board navigation system. If you want the convenience and peace of mind of an on-board nav system in the 2017 BMW 3 Series4, you'll have to pay extra for it.
No more parallel parking jitters - the Rear Parking Aid, standard on the 2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan5, can help guide you into the perfect parking spot, signaling when you're getting too close to the curb, or other cars. Unless you enjoy the parallel parking jitters, in which case, choose the 2017 BMW 3 Series4, and don't pay extra for the rear parking aid option.

SafetyThe 2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan's9 active Blind Spot Monitoring System warns you when a vehicle enters your blind spot, a little more peace of mind as a standard feature. Want that extra security on the 3 Series? Blind Spot Monitoring isn't standard on the 2017 BMW 3 Series10, so it will cost you.
If your vehicle begins to drift out of its lane, the Lane Departure Warning System, standard on the 2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan9, will sound an alarm. This extra layer of safety isn't standard on the 2017 BMW 3 Series10, so if you want it, you'll have to pay extra.
The 2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan9 offers side airbag protection to its rear passengers standard, but that same level of safety isn't even an option on the 2017 BMW 3 Series.
