NHTSA: Cadillac ATS gets five-star safety rating image

The North American based automaker Cadillac has recently announced that the ATS has received an overall five-star safety rating from the NHTSA.

After less than a month ago some other General Motors vehicles have managed to achieve a five-star safety rating in crash tests administered by the NHTSA, a new model produced under the close watch of GM is now entering our news. According to the feds, the 2013 Cadillac ATS was awarded with a top mark on the frontal, side and rollover crash tests. The model’s rivals, the BMW 3-Series and the Audi A4 have also received a five-star safety rating but the Mercedes-Benz C-Class hasn’t yet finished its tests.

The Cadillac ATS has been priced at 33,990 USD over-seas for the entry-level version and this trim level is getting a 2.5 liter fuel-efficient engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The mid-range 2.0 liter turbocharged becomes available for 35,795 USD with either a manual or an automatic transmission and with rear- or all-wheel drive. The top of the line version is getting the 3.6 liter V6 engine with 320 HP for 42,090 USD. Deliveries of the Cadillac ATS will start in December across the Old Continent and over-seas the model is already available for order.
