The 2015 Cadillac ATS remains one of the best-rated sport sedans for safety, as confirmed by the latest set of New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) crash tests overseen by the federal government.
Although the feds had already tested the 2013 Cadillac ATS back in 2012 when it was completely new, in a recent test of a 2015 Cadillac ATS sedan and reconfirmed its top scores—including five stars in the driver and passenger side barrier subcategories, as well as the side pole test, which simulates a sideways impact with a utility pole or tree.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) still hasn’t at all tested the ATS, so we’re keeping our high safety rating of 9, out of 10. The ATS almost gets there without that second take on occupant safety, as it sure does offer a lot in accident-avoidance features.
