2013 Cadillac ATS earns rare perfect score in NHTSA crash tests


Click the image to open in full size.

Less than a month ago, the Chevrolet Camaro scored a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It did so by scoring a five stars in every individual crash test administered, becoming the first car to earn perfect scores across the board since the NHTSA crash test procedures were revised in 2011.

Now another vehicle in the General Motors stable has scored top marks on the frontal, side and rollover crash tests on its way to a five-star overall rating: the Cadillac ATS (in both rear- and all-wheel-drive variants). As for the Cadillac's other 2013 model year competition, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class hasn't yet finished its test, the BMW 3 Series scored five-stars overall but received a four-star rating in the frontal crash test, and the Audi A4 in both front- and all-wheel drive received, like the ATS, five stars across the board.

Sure the ATS isn't perfect, but this is really raising the bar for the segment

Not true.

Honda Accord was the first car to earn a perfect '11 NHTSA score at the revised test's debut and it did so with a then 4-year-old model, meaning that it wasn't even designed with the revised test in mind. Gotta give credit where it's due!
