The major change for ATS in 2019 is Cadillac discontinuing the sedan, offering it only as a 2-door coupe. Also discontinued is the 6-speed manual transmission with the 2.0-liter engine. See the 2019 Cadillac ATS models for sale near you
We think most ATS shoppers will be happiest with the turbocharged ATS. It's powerful, fuel-efficient and available in numerous configurations. Plus, it's cheaper than adding the V6. As for trim level, we actually think the base model is now well-enough equipped to meet the needs and wants of most buyers -- although the Luxury trim's added leather heated seats may make the step up worth it.

2019 BMW 3 Series -- The 3 Series still has a leg up on Cadillac in the powertrain department, and it's also offered as a wagon, a coupe or a convertible (the latter two of which are known as the 4 Series). But we think the two go toe-to-toe in most major areas.
2019 Jaguar XE -- Like the ATS, the XE is a great choice for those who put "fun to drive" at the top of their priority list. With its terrific steering and suspension tuning, plus a thrilling supercharged V6, it's a great performance choice.
2019 Kia Stinger -- For considerably less money, you can get a car that has more power, a larger and (arguably) more luxurious interior and a genuinely engaging driving experience to rival the ATS. That it's a Kia shouldn't put you off.
