On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman stages a rematch between the all-new Cadillac ATS and the BMW 3-Series. But this time, he trades the smaller engines and manual gear boxes for more power and automatic transmissions. Joining the comparison is also the 2013 Mercedes-Benz C350.

Cadillac ATS will be offered with both rear-wheel and all-drive options, and the company describes it at “nimble, fun and quick,” traits typical of a midsize, sport and luxurious car.

Is the ATS a strong contender in the segment?

    I don’t see why not. Cadillac is by Chevy and we know Chevy can make fast race cars.

    I like the way that whenever motortrend review a car they make the OPPOSITE conclusion to any other motor site. I mean I know I’m a BMW fan boy otherwise I wouldn’t be on this site but just saying…

      It’s not only with these guys it’s pretty much with every other editors as well from different publishers. What I find absurd is that, in general, they will change their opinion on any manufacturer (be it a bmw, audi, merc, cadillac, infiniti, acura, lexus, honda, etc.) whether they compare it to the contestants or not. A solo review usually gives you the pros and cons of the car and conclude that they are thoroughly satisfied with what the manufacturer has done to it. However, when it comes to juxtaposing it to the competitors, they start to talk about things that was never mentioned before and if they did, they derogate about it when initially they loved it in the first place. How strange, awkward, odd and mesmerizing, I say!

      So, audi trollers and the family, even you should know about this that they have done this all the time with your favourites as well. They like it in the first place and then all of a sudden they disregard it and put a negative remark.

    Sounds like an honest review of the cars most people will drive (automatics).

  5. zumit says:

    I think he just reviewed the seat of the 3-series while driving, that’s it.

    Anybody thinking BMWs are build in Stuttgart and Mercs in Munich, isn’t worth an opinion. That about sums up this review…

    BMW is simply grown up.

    it’s just the modern day bmw.

    also bmw 3 simply left it’s own class, f30 is expensive limo! e46 days are long gone!

    well done ats, it’s ugly, bad ergonomics but well done for making good driving car!
    even i feel it’s the best not because it really is the best but bmw simply didn’t wanted to make 3er so involving to drive, they gave more to luxury side

    Ha Ha Ha almost died laughing !! what happened you got a call from Cadillac saying why are you Johnny so bad to us !!! next Joke please …………. Cadillac the best sedan ????? its just painful to hear this guy talking about cars …….

    It’s getting ridiculous! I didn’t buy the previous 3 serious because the chassis was too stiff. I drive long distances at high speed and it would just kill my back and neck. I got the E60 5 series instead. Now that the new 3 serious offers a better ride, this guy is complaining!! Looks like too many reviewers still insist on back-breaking spine-destroying rides. They’d better get back to reality.
