19. Cadillac ATS-V
To fight its German competitors in the compact executive class, Cadillac launched the ATS in 2013 and its performance version, the ATS-V, two years later. Soon they declared the smaller Cadillac one of the best and the fastest cars in its class.
Cadillac perfectly engineered it, so it was brutally fast. Under the hood is a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 engine pumping 464 HP. And it can launch the ATS-V from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds with the top speed of 189 mph.
