Two engine choices range from spirited to exhilarating. The highly efficient 2.5L engine delivers 202 HP while the 3.6L V6 moves the needle with a high-performance 335 HP and 386 Nm of torque to help you feel the full capability of the ATS 2016.
In theory, it makes sense that lighter is faster. In practice, it’s even more exhilarating than one could imagine. Engineers looked at every gram of metal that wasn’t structurally important and removed excess, helping to make the ATS 2016 one of the lightest vehicles in the compact luxury sedan segment — in turn making it one of the most fun to drive.

IT’S GOOD TO BE A LITTLE MATERIALISTIC.

THIS IS ONE BOOK YOU CAN JUDGE BY ITS COVER.
With the new ATS Sedan, what you see is what you get. The dynamic presence of the ATS 2016 is reflected in every line and curve of the vehicle. Its low, powerful form slices through the air, while vertical LED rear and available front light signatures provide it the unmistakable style of Cadillac.
ITS MUSCLE ISN’T JUST UNDER THE HOOD.
It starts with a wide stance that gives it stability. Then builds through broad shoulders and sculpted lines to a sweeping roofline accentuating a muscular build that gives it a sleek athlete-like appearance.
The compact ATS Sedan features available forged-aluminium wheels that provide an excellent finishing look and deliver excellent strength, performance and ride comfort while remaining lightweight. Plus, ATS 2016 features available run-flat tires, which are designed to resist deflation when punctured and can be driven for limited distances at slower speeds, helping you get to the nearest dealer for inspection.
Functional yet sculpted with the eye of an artist, the headlamps of ATS provide more than just good looks. Available Adaptive Forward Lighting swivels the headlamp beam into curves, providing an illuminated view of what’s in front of you, while available IntelliBeam® Intelligent headlamps automatically turn high beams on and off when appropriate.
ILLUMINATING DOOR HANDLES
Another bright idea from Cadillac. The available illuminating door handles on the ATS Sedan allow you to easily find them by delivering a warm, soft glow as you near the vehicle.
AVAILABLE DUAL EXHAUST OUTLETS
The exceptional performance capability of the ATS Sedan is reflected in every feature, especially the available polished dual exhaust outlets.
The taillamps of the ATS 2016 Sedan feature an unmistakable LED light signature.

LED VERTICAL LIGHT SIGNATURE
The available High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps come with vertical LED Light Signatures that deliver a distinctive look that’s unmistakably Cadillac.
The available configurable, full-color Head-Up Display allows you to keep your eyes on the road by unobtrusively projecting on the windshield selectable information, including navigation prompts, vehicle speed, audio information and more.
IT SEES WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT.
Eight ultrasonic sensors. Six radars. Two cameras. Together all of these make up an available comprehensive safety package that helps you see what you can’t. Add a high-strength steel safety cage, eight airbags and electronic stability control. The compact and luxurious ATS 2016 has you surrounded in protection and awareness.
DRIVER AWARENESS PACKAGE
The available Driver Awareness Package5 features a class-exclusive Safety Alert Seat, that alerts you to a variety of potential hazards. Forward Collision Alert uses a forward-facing camera to detect when a forward impact threatens. Lane Keep Assist subtly engages the electric power steering to help keep your Cadillac ATS 2016 within the lane if an unintended lane change is detected. And Lane Departure Warning monitors road lines and warns you when the vehicle begins to drift from an observed lane into another without the use of a turn signal. Also included are Rainsense Wipers, which sense moisture and automatically clear the windshield, adjusting wiper speed based on the intensity of the rain.
SAFETY ALERT SEAT
If a sensed potential hazard is coming from the left, you’ll know. From the right? You’ll know that too. Thanks to a class-exclusive available Safety Alert Seat, which subtly and discreetly sends vibrations through the seat cushion on the left, right or both sides, alerting you to a variety of potential hazards.
A durable, strong safety cage protects you from all sides. The cage is constructed with ultra-high-strength steel alloys and other highly advanced materials for exceptional rigidity and strategically placed crumple zones that absorb and direct energy away from the cabin, helping to keep its ocuupants safe.
DRIVER ASSIST PACKAGE
The available Driver Assist Package5 includes several features to help keep you safe. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert warns you of any detected rear cross-traffic, providing added confidence when backing up. Adaptive Cruise Control uses forward-facing radar and camera technology to automatically adjust speed, helping maintain the driver-selected distance from the vehicle in front of you. In potential collision situations, Front and Rear Automatic Braking systems can detect vehicles in front or objects in the rear and, in certain situations, automatically apply braking to lessen impact severity or perhaps to avoid the collision altogether. Side Blind Zone Alert provides a visual alert in your side mirrors if vehicles are in your blind spots. To assist in a lane change, Lane Change Alert senses beyond the side blind zones, alerting you to rapidly approaching vehicles. Automatic Safety Belt Tightening removes excess slack in the front belts to keep you securely in your seat during initial acceleration and spirited maneuvers.
