While the big news for Cadillac's premium compact line revolves around the introduction of the new ATS Coupe, the 2015 Cadillac ATS Sedan also boasts a few significant changes of its own. The most visible is using the Coupe's front fascia, which is highlighted by the "wreathless" Caddy crest. New Crystal White Tricoat and Dark Adriatic Blue Metallic paint are complemented by revised cabin color and trim combinations that include semi-aniline leather and suede-style microfiber seat inserts.
