2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 Cadillac ATS

When buying a luxury car, one of the best parameters to check is the car’s performance throughout the years. This is precisely why it is worth to check the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. It’s been doing well for the last two decades and is nearly reaching its third in the industry.

In the case of the Cadillac ATS, it miserably failed in sales since it was first released in 2013. Only a few years until it reaches a decade and the company are already planning on discontinuing it in the near future. Before it does, let us check if the 2019 version can at least have a good chance when compared to the veteran in the small luxury sedan category.

Design & Style

The latest C-Class is designed to make heads turn toward its direction. The athletic exterior styling is simply brilliant. The shape has that wind-slicing quality that has been sharpened for more definition. The muscular frame is a nice preview to the luxury that it holds inside its cabin. With an artfully sculpted layout, the C-Class is a true representation of luxury vehicles. One look at its premium quality materials and you will instantly know why many people are yearning for it.

The first mistake of the 2019 Cadillac ATS is its styling. It is not bad but the look has not changed a lot since the first release. The design is so recognizable that it lacks that premium feel even at a glance.

Technology & Safety

The COMAND® system comes standard for the infotainment features of the C-Class. There are plenty of options to have more advanced items. For the average user the standard tech alone is already enough since it does the job well. If planning for an upgrade, having the Driver Assistance package is highly encouraged.

Thankfully, the ATS has the latest infotainment features that can really entertain. It is equipped with plenty of tech-savvy features like wireless smartphone charging, internet hotspot capability, and keyless ignition. Driver aids on the base trim is okay and may be upgraded in higher trims.


The standard 2.0-liter engine on the C-Class base trim is already powerful at 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. It is unimaginable to have the highest trim’s prowess at 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque with the 4.0-liter V8 engine. An impressive driving experience is already a guarantee even for the base trim. It can be considered as a sensible option if you are not too keen on having the brutish performance of the more expensive trims.

The smaller 2.0-liter engine of the ATS can produce up to 272 hp while the 3.6-liter V6 engine can go as high as 335 hp. The less powerful engine is surprisingly more fun to drive compared to the V6 and is more usable on a daily driving basis.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has nothing more to prove when compared to the ATS. Its longevity in the industry speaks for its prowess across all aspects. The 2019 Cadillac ATS has all the potentials of a great car like the C-Class. A major revamp, however, is needed especially on its design.
