2021 BMW 4-Series vs. 2021 Cadillac ATS-V


With a refreshed front grille and a sporty stance, the 2021 BMW 4-Series stands out on any driveway. The car offers passengers a spacious cabin that is decked out with creature comforts. The 2021 4-Series exudes sophistication while at the same time offering a thrilling ride to any car enthusiast. This ability to combine sophistication and sporty performance is one of the characteristics that distinguish the 2021 4-Series from other cars in its category.

The 2021 Cadillac ATS-V is an outstanding vehicle that comes as either a coupe or a sedan. While performance is not anywhere close to the 2021 4-Series, the Cadillac is still an impressive vehicle on the road. Space is an issue, especially in the coupe so drivers looking for an all-rounded car for daily use should opt for the sedan instead. Let us compare the two cars and see how they rank against each other.

Design & Style

The 2021 4-Series has not undergone significant changes from the previous model. The dashboard and the instrument panels have been slightly refreshed. The look and feel of the cabin remain as premium as ever, with the restrained styling that is typical of BMW vehicles. Plenty of cabin space means that the 2021 4-Series is a practical car that can handle school and shopping runs with ease.

With its distinct styling, the 2021 Cadillac ATS-V offers buyers a stylish package that is likely to stand out on any driveway. While many people consider the sharp-edges that dominate its exterior design as conservative, it does give an aura of sophistication that Cadillac enthusiasts love.

Technology & Safety

With the 2021 BMW 4-Series, you can expect an 8.8-inch display that controls the infotainment system in the car. BMW’s iDrive ensures that the infotainment system is silky-smooth and graphics are clear. For those who want a little more zest from the infotainment system, a superb 10.3-inch touchscreen display is available as an option. Smartphone integration and onboard navigation are all standard in the 2021 4-Series.

The 2021 Cadillac ATS-V is equally decked out with an impressive array of tech features including smartphone integration, Wi-Fi hotspot, and much more. The infotainment software is pretty decent although not as responsive as BMW’s iDrive.


When it comes to what is under the hood, the 2021 4-Series comes with a standard turbocharged 2-liter engine that delivers an impressive 255hp. This is what makes the 2021 4-Series such a fun car to drive. Acceleration is smooth and the transmission flawless. With a finely-tuned suspension, passengers in the 2021 4-Series are shielded from road imperfections.

The 2021 Cadillac ATS-V comes with a 2-liter turbocharged engine that delivers 272hp. Although this engine is theoretically more powerful than that in the 2021 4-Series, performance is not at par and the 2021 ATS-V feels a lot more sluggish than the BMW. This could be as a result of the boxy shape of the 2021 ATS-V or due to its transmission. Whatever the case, the Cadillac offers a far less thrilling ride than the 2021 4-Series.

The Bottom Line

Even though Cadillac has made a lot of effort to build a sports sedan that rivals German competitors such as the 2021 BMW 4-Series, the 2021 ATS-V is still far from catching up with its rivals. The 2021 4-Series feels and rides like a true sports car. The Cadillac struggles around corners and offers a poor ride quality. This makes the 2021 4-Series the clear winner in this comparison.
