    Which Would You Rather Have: ATS, CTS, or XTS?

    Simple question: What car would you buy, and why? I was thinking about all three of these cars, and I'm hung up on which one I'd chose. What do you guys think? If you select "none of them", post what you'd rather buy!

    2014 Cadillac ATS

    Re: Which Would You Rather Have: ATS, CTS, or XTS?

    I'd personally rather have the ATS, but I'm really liking the XTS after seeing it more and more.

    I waited over 10 years for Cadillac to get off their collective back sides and build a RWD V8 Sedan that was comparable in ANY way to my Seville. I'm now in the market for GM's next "new" V8 CAR... and that car is a Chevy.

    I voted NONE... I'm going shopping for some weird thing called an "SS" I might just buy a set of Holden logos and rebadge it back to what it is.

    2012 SRX & 2013 XTS

    Re: Which Would You Rather Have: ATS, CTS, or XTS?

    These are very different Cars and price points (obviously).

    I ordered the XTS because I wanted; more leg and shoulder room, and a smooth "floating" old caddy ride vs sporty.

    2014 CTS only if it comes with a non V series V8 engine variant.

    The 2.0T ATS has my attention for sure. If there is a coupe it'll be damn hard to pass it up.
    Just that time again to ignore certain people. I'm certain they will continue to try and instigate and antagonize while throwing up their arms saying they did nothing but are here on a civil basis. Not worth the time seeing how some just seem to know all.

    2014 CTS, because I have not seen it.. and wife would not let me buy it, though I could probably get away with an ATS...

    Re: Which Would You Rather Have: ATS, CTS, or XTS?

    If the 2014 CTS retains an aggressive look, I would go with it. But if it's a design is more in tune with ATS and XTS, I would definitely go with XTS. A little soft on the looks, but quite a handsome sedan, and you can't beat extra interior space.

    Although, depending on my vehicular needs (say I live a life where a car isn't hugely needed, or in a congested urban setting with tight parking spaces/garages/streets), I would definitely go with the ATS, for it's easier driving, cheaper insurance and gas.

    CTS has way more models to choose from so its going to get the most votes here most likely. Next gen CTS-V might be an absolute spectacle.

    The ATS is too small, the XTS is having it's ass dragged around, therefore the CTS.

    2013 Cadillac ATS - Black

    Re: Which Would You Rather Have: ATS, CTS, or XTS?

    CTS (sight unseen) due to it being right-sized for me. I love the idea of the ATS (lighter, great handling) but I bet it will feel small because it is small. The XTS is getting a lot bigger than I need. The CTS will fit me just fine, assuming it is 5 Series size. Not that I'm a big guy, but I don't like it when I feel like the passenger is sitting in my lap.

    If the next Gen CTS-V is on a lighter weight platform with a monster engine, then I will stick with the CTS.

    After seeing both up close I want an ATS. The XTS is nice and all but I like the smaller car better. My taste could change tomorrow though.
