Less than a month ago, the Chevrolet Camaro (http://www.autoblog.com/chevrolet/camaro/) scored a five-star overall safety rating (http://www.autoblog.com/2011/11/14/2012-chevrolet-camaro-becomes-first-car-to-ace-all-nhtsa-safety/) from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (http://autoblog.com/tag/nhtsa). 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 (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/10/05/nhtsa-releases-first-batch-of-crash-test-ratings-under-new-safet/).

Now another vehicle in the General Motors (http://autoblog.com/gm) 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 (http://autoblog.com/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 (http://autoblog.com/mercedes-benz/c-class) hasn't yet finished its test, the BMW 3 Series (http://autoblog.com/bmw/3+series) scored five-stars overall but received a four-star rating in the frontal crash test, and the Audi A4 (http://autoblog.com/audi/a4) in both front- and all-wheel drive received, like the ATS, five stars across the board.2013 Cadillac ATS earns rare perfect score in NHTSA crash tests (http://www.autoblog.com/2012/12/11/2013-cadillac-ats-earns-rare-perfect-score-in-nhtsa-crash-tests/) originally appeared on Autoblog (http://www.autoblog.com) on Tue, 11 Dec 2012 14:16:00 EST.
