Design and engineering philosophies distill all the engaging dynamic identities for which the brand is renowned. The Cadillac ATS sedan and coupe ride on the same 109.3-inch (2,775 mm) wheelbase but feature their own bodywork. The roof, doors, rear fenders and trunk lid are unique to each, along with a specific front fascia and front fenders on the Coupe that accommodate a wider track than the Sedan.
Both body styles have a firmly planted stance, enhanced by short overhangs and taut sheet metal that appear to wrap tightly around the tires. The 17-inch wheels are standard on the Cadillac ATS sedan and 18-inch wheels are standard on ATS coupe.
Bold lighting elements are a Cadillac signature feature and the Cadillac ATS advances the tradition with available high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps, light-emitting diode (LED) vertical light signature elements and Adaptive Forward Lighting. The ATS features projector-beam halogen headlamps, while the HID headlamps and front vertical LED light signatures are included on all trims above 2.0T ATS on coupe, and on the 3.6L Premium Luxury and 3.6L Premium Performance on sedan. Illuminated outside door handles on 3.6L Premium Performance lend technologically advanced style and function. All models feature LED technology for the taillamps and rear-center stop lamp.
The IntelliBeam feature, included with the Driver Awareness or Driver Assist packages, automatically deploys high-beam headlamps when needed and instantly turns them down when oncoming traffic is detected.
The 17-inch premium painted alloy wheels are standard on the aedan, with 17-inch polished and 18-inch forged machined-face and polished wheels available. Nineteen-inch wheel-and-tire combinations are available as dealer-installed accessories. A range of 18-inch premium painted, machined or polished wheels is available on the Cadillac ATS Coupe.
Exterior colors include new Satin Steel Metallic, as well as Red Obsession Tintcoat, Phantom Gray Metallic, Dark Adriatic Blue Metallic, Radiant Silver Metallic, Black Raven and Crystal White Tricoat.
