Overview

What's New in the 2014 Cadillac ATS?

As the ATS was all-new for the 2013 model year, it's unchanged for 2014

Which ATS is the Best?

We think most ATS shoppers will be happiest with the turbocharged ATS -- it's powerful, fuel efficient and available in numerous configurations. Plus, it's cheaper than the V6. As for trim levels, that's up to you. Our favorite is the Performance, especially with its standard Driver Awareness Package, but it's hard to go wrong with any ATS trim.

How Much Does a 2014 Cadillac ATS Cost?

The ATS is offered in four trim levels: a base-level model called only the ATS, followed by mid-level Luxury and Performance trims, along with a range-topping Premium model.

Base-level ATS models ($33,900) offer automatic headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, Bluetooth, satellite radio, an iPod/USB interface and an auxiliary jack for MP3 players. Premium vinyl upholstery, which looks a lot like leather, is also included. When choosing a base ATS, drivers can pick between the 2.5-liter engine and the 2.0T.

Step up to the ATS Luxury ($38,000) and you get many more features, ranging from a remote starter to keyless access, dual power front seats with driver memory, a rearview camera and leather upholstery. The Luxury also adds Cadillac's touchscreen CUE infotainment system to the center control stack. Like the base-level ATS, luxury models offer the choice between the 2.5-liter and the 2.0T.

Next up is the ATS Performance ($43,000), which is no longer available with the 2.5-liter engine. Instead, it adds the 3.6-liter V6 to its list of options, while the 2.0T is now standard. Other standard features include sport seats, xenon headlights, an upgraded sound system and a Driver Awareness Package. That package features forward collision alert, automatic wipers, rear side airbags, a lane departure warning system and rear cross-traffic alert.

Topping the ATS lineup is the Premium ($46,000), which also comes with the 2.0T standard and the V6 optional. Premium models include standard navigation, 18-in alloys and a full-color heads-up display projected on the windshield.

All ATS models feature a wide range of options. ATS units equipped with the 2.0T or V6 engines come standard with rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is also available. The ATS also offers a Cold Weather Package with heated seats and a heated steering wheel, as well as a Driver Awareness Package -- standard on Performance and Premium models -- that offers several safety features.

Cadillac ATS Safety

Is the 2014 Cadillac ATS a Safe Car?

The Cadillac ATS comes with stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes with an available Brembo performance upgrade and eight standard airbags (front, front side, front knee, full-length side curtain). Rear thorax airbags are optional.

Depending on trim, the ATS also offers a laundry list of electronic driving aids, including radar-based forward collision alert, automatic braking in case of driver negligence, lane-departure alert, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash tests, the ATS earned a perfect 5-star overall rating. Better yet, it also earned five stars in all three tests: frontal, side and rollover.

Competition

2014 Cadillac ATS vs the competition

BMW 3 Series -- The 3 Series still has a leg up on Cadillac in the powertrain department, and it's also offered as a wagon, with a redesigned coupe and convertible just around the corner.

Lexus IS -- We considered recommending the Audi A4 instead, but we think the IS sedan's mission is more in line with that of the ATS. Offered with a choice of two V6 engines, the rear-drive model is similarly compact and sporty.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class -- The C-Class was recently rejuvenated with a new interior and fresh engines. Unlike some baby Benz models from the past, this one looks and drives like a real Mercedes.
