Pros

Excellent handling; rear-wheel drive; a variety of fuel efficient engines; Cadillac style and luxury

Model Highlights

Cadillac knew that a lightweight chassis was essential if they wanted to create the kind of car that would handle and drive like a world-class sports sedan. A lightweight structure not only benefits handling, but improves acceleration and fuel economy as well. The ATS weighs in at around 3,400 pounds, which is extremely light among luxury cars. This helps it achieve an EPA estimated 33 mpg on the highway when properly equipped.

Engine choices available on the ATS sedan take advantage of its light weight to provide strong fuel economy and acceleration. Four engines are available, a base 2.5L 4-cylinder rated at 202 horsepower, a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo making 272 horsepower, a 3.6L V6 producing 321 horsepower and in the ATS-V, a twin turbocharged 3.6L V6 making 464 horsepower. The standard ATS comes with a 6-speed automatic, though a 6-speed manual is available with either turbo engine. The automatic transmission option for the ATS-V is an 8-speed. All-wheel drive is optional on the standard ATS, and it is only available with the 2.0L turbo engine or the V6. The ATS coupe is not available with the 2.5L.

In sedan or coupe form, the regular ATS comes in four different trims: Standard, Luxury, Performance and Premium. In each trim, sedans and coupes are comparably equipped, with subtle differences. Standard sedans come equipped with either of the 4-cylinder engines, for example, while coupes feature only the turbo 4-cylinder. The base stereo in the sedan is a 7-speaker Bose surround sound unit, while the coupe features a 9-speaker Bose unit. Sedans include Sirius satellite radio and Bluetooth connectivity, while Standard coupes lack Bluetooth. Other notable standard equipment includes a leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, a 6-way power adjustable driver's seat, a 4.2-inch color information display, dual-zone climate control, and attractive 17-inch wheels (18-inch on the coupe).

The Luxury trim adds leather seating surfaces, 8-way power adjustable front seats, power mirrors, front and rear ultrasonic parking assist and Cadillac's CUE information system. CUE relays information to the driver using an 8-inch touch screen located in the center console. Functioning much like an iPad, CUE vastly simplifies the interior of the car, allowing for increased functionality without much of the clutter. It also houses the optional navigation system.

Performance -equipped ATS models include just about everything in the Luxury package, but add a 10-speaker stereo (12 in the coupe), aluminum pedals, HID headlamps, automatic wipers and sportier front seats. The Performance trim is only available with turbocharged or a V6-engined ATS.

Top-of-the-line Premium trim is likewise only available with the two more powerful engines. It includes a full color programmable heads up display, 18-inch wheels and Magnetic Ride Control shocks, which can instantly adjust suspension stiffness as the car moves over the road, providing both a sublime ride and amazing handling.

The ATS-V is equipped with a wide variety of performance and luxury features, but standouts include Brembo high performance brakes, high performance sport seats, magnetic ride control suspension and an available aerodynamic package.

Standard safety equipment on the ATS includes anti-lock brakes, traction control, stability control, OnStar crash response and front, knee and side-curtain airbags.

Model News

2016 sees the launch of the high performance variant of the ATS, dubbed the ATS-V. With a twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing well over 400 horsepower, the ATS-V should be able to go head to head with the BMW M3 and the Audi RS4. In addition to its firecracker of an engine, the ATS-V gets uprated suspension, new body work and much stickier tires. Available in two or 4-door variants, the ATS-V provides an American alternative to the classic high performance European sports sedan.

Value Writeup

The Cadillac ATS competes with other compact luxury cars from BMW, Audi, Mercedes and Lexus. While previous efforts had focused on comfort over performance, the ATS represents a firm departure, with Cadillac opting to compete with BMW on performance, emphasizing rear-wheel-drive handling and a lightweight body structure. Improved torque from the turbocharged engine and a sporty new coupe only add to the Cadillac's appeal.

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.

US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID:
15V463000

Mfg's Report Date:
JUL 24, 2015

Component:
VISIBILITY

Potential Number Of Units Affected:
63,665

Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Cadillac ATS vehicles manufactured April 25, 2012, to June 25, 2015. The affected vehicles may experience the roof panel closing automatically when the non-recessed switches are pressed and the roof panel is open. These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 118, "Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems."

Consequence:
Because the switch is not recessed, the roof panel switch may inadvertently be pressed resulting in unintended auto-closure of the roof panel, increasing the risk of personal injury.

Remedy:
GM will notify owners and dealers will replace the roof console accessory switch trim plate, free of charge. The recall began on August 19, 2015. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 15568. Note this recall supersedes 15V-106.

Notes:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
