How did we create a world-class Cadillac like no other? By building a compact luxury sport sedan that’s as nimble and exhilarating as it is luxurious and technologically advanced. By benchmarking the world’s best luxury sport sedans and aiming even higher. And, finally, by testing its limits on some of the most punishing proving grounds on earth.
flashAll-New ArchitectureBecause a lighter chassis leads to better acceleration and handling, Cadillac engineers used advanced materials and techniques to create a chassis that’s not just lightweight, but also exceptionally strong and safe./content/dam/Cadillac/Global/master/nscwebsite/en/home/Vehicles/2013_Vehicles/2013_ATS_Sedan/Model_Overview/01_images/2013_ats_performance_88x50_architecture.jpg

Underbody aero shields, available active aero grille shutters, and more, are just part of a complete aerodynamics package./content/dam/Cadillac/Global/master/nscwebsite/en/home/Vehicles/2013_Vehicles/2013_ATS_Sedan/Model_Overview/01_images/2013-ats_aero_play_thumb.jpg

ADVANCED ENGINE LINEUP
Choose from three engines, like the powerful and efficient 2.0L turbo that delivers an impressive 272 HP; Cadillac’s award-winning 3.6L V6 engine that boasts 321 HP; or an exhilarating 2.5L engine that, along with the 2.0L turbo, offers over 30 mpg highway fuel economy8.
6-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION
Delivering the ultimate in driver control, the available Tremec 6-speed manual transmission was designed exclusively for the ATS and is available on the powerful 272 HP 2.0L turbo engine with RWD.
ZF PREMIUM ELECTRIC STEERING
A highly acclaimed manufacturer of steering systems, ZF created the electric assist speed-sensitive steering rack for the ATS. It not only helps save fuel by eliminating the traditional power-robbing hydraulic pump, but also delivers precise feel with the perfect amount of effort.
LIMITED-SLIP REAR DIFFERENTIAL
Maximum grip means maximum performance. The ATS features an available mechanical limited-slip rear differential that ensures the highest amount of engine torque is transferred to the wheel with the most traction.
Whether you prefer the performance-tuned Rear-Wheel Drive or the available all-weather capable All-Wheel Drive, the ATS was purposefully engineered to deliver exceptional handling and control.

A prime example of this is Bose® Active Noise Cancellation. It actively monitors engine noise and sends out opposing nonaudible frequencies through the speakers to quiet these sounds./content/dam/Cadillac/Global/master/nscwebsite/en/home/Vehicles/2013_Vehicles/2013_ATS_Sedan/Model_Overview/01_images/2013-ats-bose_play_thumb.jpg
Using a combination of radar and vision-sensing technology, available full-speed-range Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a selectable preset distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. It even allows the ATS to hold a safe following distance in stop-and-go traffic.
RECONFIGURABLE HEAD-UP DISPLAY
To help keep your eyes on the road, the ATS includes an available, reconfigurable Head Up Display. This incredibly innovative feature subtly projects customizable key driving and entertainment information such as vehicle speed, audio options and safety alerts in full-color at eye level.
ADAPTIVE FORWARD LIGHTING
To help guide you around curves and corners at night, the ATS offers available Adaptive Forward Lighting. The system monitors the car’s speed and steering angle and swivels HID headlamps to cast light precisely into your path of travel.
Complementing the athletic nature of the ATS, available bolstered performance seats with thigh extenders are not only remarkably comfortable, but help keep you firmly planted during spirited driving.
AUTHENTIC INTERIOR MATERIALS
From the ATS’s available supple leather seating—offered in an array of rich colors—to the fine accents of exotic wood, real aluminum or carbon fiber trim, nothing has been overlooked inside the ATS.
The ATS reveals its refined side in its detailed stitching and precise cut-and-sewn interior. Enjoy the meticulously crafted premium materials inside the sophisticated cabin. Every detail is driver-focused and brilliantly executed.
COLD WEATHER PACKAGE
The welcome warmth of the available heated front seats and steering wheel is the perfect antidote for a cold winter morning.

The ATS includes stunning painted or polished 17-inch wheels surrounded by performance tires. Available polished or machine-finished 18-inch wheels also make a powerful impression.
Integrated perfectly into the rear fascia so that the ATS’s immaculate lines remain unbroken, the brightly polished, available dual-exhaust tips ensure that its athletic physique ends with a bold statement.
AVAILABLE VERTICAL LED HEADLAMPS
The ATS’s available vertical headlamps with LED light signatures are as brilliantly designed as they are just plain brilliant. LED technology forms a razor-thin blade that is clearly evident day or night, making the ATS visible and distinctive from almost any angle.
ILLUMINATING DOOR HANDLES
Part beautiful accent, part beacon, the ATS’s available illuminating door handles light up, making them easier to locate. Once you are back in your vehicle, they return to their non-illuminated state.
