Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 ranks 16 out of 21 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The new-for-2017 Cadillac XT5 has a well-built cabin and spacious rear seats. It also has a long list of features, including several driver assistance options. However, many class rivals have more impressive engines, and the XT5's handling ability draws mixed reviews.

Pros
First-rate cabin materials
Spacious rear seats
Excellent safety ratings

Cons
Uninspiring engine

The new 2017 Cadillac XT5 combines a large interior with a pleasing ride, plentiful outward visibility and a striking design. If you're shopping in the competitive compact luxury SUV segment, the XT5 is worth a look.

Pros
Pleasing ride and handling
Generous interior space
Excellent forward visibility.

Cons
Only one engine choice
Tech interface can frustrate
All-wheel drive not available in base trim.

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is an evolutionary improvement over the SRX in most ways, but it’s part of a larger leap for Cadillac.
The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is the successor to the GM luxury brand's smallest SUV, the SRX. New this model year, it's a design that lays some heavy bets on lighter-weight construction, a library-themed interior, and other upscale cues that Cadillac hopes will lure away buyers from the likes of the Audi Q5 and Benz GLC.

Pros
Fine details everywhere inside
Suite of fuel-efficiency and safety tech
Easy drivability, perky powertrain
Softer, less chiseled look than SRX

Cons
Rear seat still a bit tight across
Lacks the sport-sedan pedigree of some rivals
No hybrid in the lineup
CarPlay outshines Cadillac's own CUE
