The 2018 Cadillac XT5
August 07 2018, True North Cadillac
The Cadillac XT5 has helped the brand firmly establish itself in the luxury compact SUV segment. With its XT5, Cadillac can compete and is on par with the BMW X3, Audi Q5, and Mercedes-Benz GLCs of the world. Where the 2018 Cadillac XT5 is different, however, is that it is much more spacious than its German rivals while being a little more comfortable too.
A Lot of Luxury and Comfort in the Cadillac XT5
When you sport the Cadillac emblem, you are expected to stand out in terms of comfort and refinement. This is certainly the case with the Cadillac XT5. The drive is refined, and you’ll feel properly isolated from other drivers and sounds out on the road. That said, the XT5 is far from being a soft SUV or boring to drive.
In fact, it's the opposite. The XT5 is solid enough on the road with precise steering and good accelerations. It’s only engine, a 3.6-litre V6 developing 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque, is quite efficient.
Combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive, the XT5 delivers balanced performance. Balanced is the right way to describe the new Cadillac XT5. It is comfortable and spacious, but also powerful and fun to drive.
Its trunk is larger than what you’d find in German luxury SUVs in this segment and can accommodate 849 litres with all seats in place. That's almost 300 litres more than the X3 or the GLC.
