Luxury & Convenience
Whether you choose the 2019 Lexus IS 300 or 2019 Cadillac ATS, you will get an extensive list of comfort and convenience features. However, there are a few thoughtful features in the Lexus that are unavailable in the Cadillac.

The Lexus IS 300 comes with available  MEMORY SETTINGS  for the driver and front passenger seats. When a different driver takes the wheel, this system will automatically adjust the driver seat, the position of the steering wheel, and the outside mirrors to suit his or her preferences. It also adjusts the front passenger seat to different passengers' preset preferences. The Cadillac only offers a memory driver seat.

Additionally, the Lexus IS' front and rear power windows can be fully opened and closed with just one touch of the switches, which makes things more convenient at toll booths and drive-up windows. In the Cadillac ATS, you need to hold the switches the entire time to fully open and close the rear windows.

The Lexus IS 300 also has a number of features to provide a more comfortable ride in summer. Its available air-conditioned driver and front-passenger seats keep you and your passenger cool in sweltering conditions, while its optional rear power sunshade blocks heat and glare for your rear passengers. The Cadillac does not have these heat-beating features.
