Companies mentioned in this article: Cavender Cadillac

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Cadillac sedans, coupes and SUV have long been recognized in the United States for being the standard bearer of automotive luxury. After having that spot sewn up for a number of years now, Cadillac has expanded its efforts across the pond to Europe to become a top rival to luxury imports from Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Cadillac engineers and designers fired the first shots across the bow of European automakers with the development of the Cadillac CTS and its top end version the CTS-V. Now, Cadillac is moving the battle into the realm of entry level luxury cars, they are pitting the 2014 Cadillac ATS against the 2014 BMW 3 Series.

Cavender Cadillac is working very hard to make its online presence more than a place for customers to simply log on and glance at inventory and prices. Cavender Cadillac has been hard at work building elements to their website that will further inform interested parties about the virtues and specification of each Cadillac model, but also how those models do against their top competitors like those offered by foreign automakers. There have been many improvements to the 2014 Cadillac ATS, it has a very eye-catching shape with several sculpted elements that place it in the upper echelon of modern luxury coupes. Furthermore, the interior of the 2014 ATS has been continually improved with better technology and better materials that on its own merit, could challenge most of what is imported to foreign automotive dealerships.

At a basic mechanical level, the 2014 Cadillac ATS sports a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that is capable of making 272 horsepower and will still get more than 20 miles per gallon in the city and better than 30 miles per gallon on the highway, according the Environmental Protection Agency fuel-estimates. The comparable engine choice for the 2014 BMW 3 Series (320i for comparison purposes) is a similar 2.0-liter, four-cylinder that makes just 180 horsepower, but does come away with a few more miles per gallon.

The entire Cavender Cadillac inventory can be viewed at www.cavendercadillac.com. The showroom is located at 801 Broadway, San Antonio, TX, 78215. Anyone who would like to take a closer look at the 2014 Cadillac ATS or would like to schedule a test drive to see how it outperforms the competition should call (210) 226-7221.
