The 2017 Cadillac ATS comes as either a compact 4-door sedan or a 2-door coupe. It competes with the Lexus IS 200t, Lincoln MKZ, and BMW 3 Series. This year, the trim levels have been revised and the Cadillac CUE multimedia system has been updated. The sedan and coupe each have a high-performance ATS-V version. It will be covered in a separate overview.

The same three trims available for both body styles: the base model, Luxury, and Premium Performance.

The ATS has sleek geometric bodylines, a large crest-shaped grille, and vertical slab headlights that stretch back to the middle of the hood. Standard features include a dual-pipe exhaust system, Brembo performance brakes, 17-inch alloy wheels, power/heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, active grille shutters, and an LED rear stop lamp. HID headlights, LED signature lighting, and a power moonroof are also optional. An available Carbon Black appearance package comes with black exterior accents and unique painted 18-inch wheels.

Under the hood, the ATS is powered by a standard 272-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, while all-wheel drive is available for the Turbo 2.0 models. The Premium Performance trim comes with a 333-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 paired to the 8-speed automatic and RWD. Fuel economy for the Turbo 2.0/FWD models is an EPA-estimated 22/31 mpg city/highway. It lowers slightly to a 22/30 mpg rating for the AWD models. The V-6 model has a lower rating of 20/30 mpg.

Inside, the ATS has standard leather-trim seating with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. The center stack features the now standard Cadillac CUE multimedia system that includes an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi hotspot (subscription required), a wireless charging station, 3 USB ports, and a Bose premium audio system. Standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, power windows/locks, remote keyless entry, keyless passive entry, remote vehicle start, and cruise control. Leather upholstery, power/heated front seats, a memory seat, a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and sport aluminum pedals are available as well.

Standard safety features include a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. Available active safety features include adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, forward collision alert, a blindspot monitoring system, and rear cross-traffic alert. Sport-tuned, adaptive suspension with Magnetic Ride Control and a limited-slip rear differential are available for the Premium Performance trim.
