Cadillac has held a reputation within the luxury vehicle segment for quite some time—and their 2017 Cadillac ATS fits right in with the competition. However, it does come with a higher price tag and fewer features than the also-American-built 2017 Acura TLX. Fresh off the line at the Marysville, OH, Auto Manufacturing Plant, the TLX 2.4 8-DCT P-AWS outdoes the 2017 Cadillac ATS Sedan 2.0L Turbo RWD in the realms of both comfort and convenience. Acura equips the TLX standard with a power sunroof to unleash fresh air and sunshine throughout the cabin, along with memory-adjustable, heated front seats to allow for dialing in the perfect seating position while staying warm and comfortable on chilly days. This is just a selection of features that cost extra to equip on the 2017 Cadillac ATS.
Safety in Numbers – The Acura TLX Inches Ahead
Sometimes safety and comfort appear in numbers. “Longer and wider than most of its competition in the compact-luxury segment, the 2017 Acura TLX offers near-midsize sedan accommodations at a price that undercuts most of the compact segment,” Edmunds.com points out. The near 8 inches of extra length and 2 inches of extra width in the Acura TLX not only produces greater passenger and cargo space than the Cadillac ATS, but it can also prove to be more stable in certain scenarios. Combine that with the extensive selection of technologically advanced safety features, and the TLX becomes one of the safest vehicles on the roadway.
The TLX Surpasses the Standard
The TLX comes very well equipped at the Standard Package level, but for those who seek to harness the most advanced technology on the market—spanning from performance to safety, comfort to entertainment—the 2017 Acura TLX has a number of packages to choose from. The most advanced TLX package remains more affordable than the top-of-the-line ATS trim. Even at that level, Acura holds strong, equipping features not found with the 2017 Cadillac ATS.
