Suspension and Handling

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the ATS-V’s wheelbase is 12.1 inches longer than on the Supra (109.3 inches vs. 97.2 inches).

Chassis

The ATS-V uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The Supra doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

As tested by Car and Driver while under full throttle, the interior of the ATS-V is quieter than the Supra 3.0 Premium (84 vs. 85 dB).

Passenger Space

The ATS-V has standard seating for 4 passengers; the Supra can only carry 2.

The ATS-V has 32.9 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Supra (83.9 vs. 51).

Servicing Ease

J.D. Power and Associates surveys of service recipients show that Cadillac service is better than Toyota. J.D. Power ranks Cadillac third in service department satisfaction. With a 40% lower rating, Toyota is ranked 14th.

Ergonomics

The ATS-V’s standard power windows have a locking feature to keep children in the rear seat from operating them, but the driver can still raise and lower both of them with the lock engaged. Toyota does not offer a locking feature on the Supra’s standard power windows.

To help drivers see further while navigating curves, the ATS-V offers optional adaptive headlights to illuminate around corners automatically by reading vehicle speed and steering wheel angle. The Supra doesn’t offer cornering lights.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the ATS-V has standard extendable sun visors. The Supra doesn’t offer extendable visors.

The ATS-V’s sun-visors swivel front-to-side to block glare from the side windows. The Supra’s visors are fixed into the windshield header.

The ATS-V’s available GPS navigation system has a real-time traffic update feature that plots alternative routes to automatically bypass traffic problems. (Service not available in all areas.) The Supra’s available navigation system doesn’t offer real-time traffic updates.

To quickly and conveniently keep personal devices charged without cables tangling and wearing out, the Cadillac ATS-V has a standard wireless phone charging system (Qi) in the center console. Only the Supra 3.0 Premium/Launch Edition offers wireless charging.

The ATS-V offers an optional 115-volt a/c outlet on the center console, allowing you to recharge a laptop or run small household appliances without special adapters that can break or get misplaced. The Supra doesn’t offer a house-current electrical outlet.

Recommendations

A group of representative automotive journalists from North America selected the ATS as the 2013 North American Car of the Year. The Supra has never been chosen.
