2015 Cadillac ATS Overview (See Available Styles)

Cadillac's compact ATS gives GM's luxury brand a direct competitor to the BMW 3 Series. Cadillac boasts that the ATS has 50/50 weight distribution, front to rear, and one of the lowest curb weights in its class. Available with rear- or all-wheel drive, the five-seat ATS is offered with a choice of three engines: two four-cylinders and a V-6.

New for 2015
The ATS lineup expands with the addition of a new coupe body style. The ATS sedan, meanwhile, gets revised front-end styling with a new version of the Cadillac crest and standard passive entry.

The OnStar communication system adds 4G LTE internet connectivity with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. A three-month/3-gigabyte data trial is included. The available Cadillac User Experience multimedia system can read incoming text messages, and a wireless charging system dubbed Cadillac DockSpot is now available.

The available turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder now makes 295 pounds-feet of torque at 3,000 rpm; last year it was rated at 260 pounds-feet at 1,700 rpm.
