GM's September 2012 Volume 14 No. 9 issue of TECHLINK talks about the many standard and available features found on the 2013 Cadillac ATS. Here are a couple of links to the article:

Web format (article about '13 Cadillac ATS only): http://sandyblogs.com/techlink/?p=1055

PDF format (entire TECHLINK issue): http://sandyblogs.com/techlink/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/September-Techlink-2012-F.pdf

In addition to CUE (Cadillac User Experience), HUD (Head-Up Display) and MRC (Magnetic Ride Control), other available features on the '13 ATS include Safety Alert Seat, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Collision Preparation, Front & Rear Automatic Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Vision Camera with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Adaptive Forward Lighting and Intellibeam Headlamp Control.

Interesting tidbit: The article mentions the ATS is being shipped with a feature called 'Transport Mode' enabled, which reduces the electrical load on the battery when the vehicle is parked to prolong battery stand time. This feature, hopefully driver deployable, will be of interest to customers who may sometimes leave their vehicle parked for weeks at a time.

FYI: Have discovered the 2013 Cadillac ATS owner's manual is now available for viewing & downloading directly from cadillac.com. Here's a link to the specific webpage: http://www.cadillac.com/owners/auto-owners-manuals.html

If you click on the whole article ( pdf) and scroll down to picture of 2.0L turbo, there is a "click here" link just beneath the picture
that takes you to a whole series of videos, one on engine and others about car itself.
