Benefits of Driving a 2013 Cadillac ATS Sedan

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 from this strategy, Cadillac opting to match BMW with a strong emphasis on rear-wheel-drive handling and a lightweight body structure. The ATS starts at about $33,000, undercutting the price of a 3-series BMW by about $3,000.

What's new for 2013?

The ATS is all new for 2013. Cadillac has finally decided to produce a car to go head-to-head with German compact sedans, namely the BMW 3-series and the Audi A4. The Cadillac ATS puts a firm emphasis on world-class performance and handling to create a car that matches its European counterparts in terms of chassis dynamics and power. Comfort has not been neglected and the ATS comes well equipped, with Cadillac's brand new CUE entertainment system being a notable option.

Model Strengths

  • Excellent handling
  • rear-wheel-drive
  • a variety of fuel efficient engines
  • traditional Cadillac luxury

Model Review

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 3400 lbs., which is extremely among luxury cars. This helps it achieve an EPA estimate of up to 33 mpg on the highway when properly equipped.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
