2018 Porsche Cayenne vs. 2018 Cadillac ATS

When we talk about high-end SUVs, we got to mention models like the 2018 Cadillac ATS and the 2018 Porsche Cayenne. With an up-to-date technology and stylish interior, both the vehicles are on equal ground, but Porsche is a step ahead in terms of other features. This comparison will give you a good idea.

Design & Style

The 2018 Cadillac ATS can seat up to 5 people, with comfortable front seats on offer. However, if you are an adult sitting at the back, you may feel a little cramped with confined legroom. The interior feels modern and sleek, with sufficient high-end materials and contemporary styling. The cabin has a standard synthetic leather upholstery, with some plastic materials as well.

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne gives you that luxury feel the moment you step inside the vehicle. The front seats are quite well-cushioned with reclining seats on the rear end. The interior has a strong build quality with leather-trimmed seats and premium-grade materials. There is sufficient headroom and legroom across both rows of seating, and the trunk space is big enough to accommodate luggage for long distance trip.

Technology & Safety

Technology and safety are vital aspects of any vehicle. The 2018 Cadillac ATS comes equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen and favorites like USB ports, a Wi-Fi hotspot and Apple CarPlay. Expect some hiccups while operating climate and audio controls. The buttons are more distracting than helpful. The base model comes with standard safety features such as Teen Driver System and a rearview camera.

Talking about the 2018 Porsche Cayenne, it comes with an intuitive system with a responsive touchscreen display of the Porsche Communication Management Interface. You don’t have to count upon the touch screen interface to adjust settings since there are a number of buttons surrounding the gear control. Some standard driver assistance features include a surround-view camera, adaptive cruise control, lane change assist and lane departure warning.


Performance-wise, the 2018 Cadillac ATS comes standard with a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, however, you need to opt for higher trims to achieve the desired level of performance one expects to have from a vehicle of its class. In case of Porsche Cayenne, the base model itself has a V6 3-liter engine that can crank up to 335 HP.

The Bottom Line

The 2018 Porsche Cayenne is truly a class rival to any vehicle of its range, with an athletic appearance. It features an elegant cabin with plenty of comfort factor. Compared to other models, it has high fuel efficiency rating and there is every reason to choose it over Cadillac ATS.
