Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Acura likes to tout tech as the selling point of its models, so the TLX offers front-wheel drive with rear-wheel steering or torque-vectoring all-wheel drive to enhance its agility. The base powertrain is a 206-hp 2.4-liter inline-four with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic while a 290-hp 3.5-liter V-6 with a nine-speed automatic is optional. The TLX has LED headlamps and electronic driving assistants such as road-departure mitigation, collision-mitigation braking, and lane-keeping assist.

Pros
Improved performance,
if only just;
plentiful standard equipment;
roomy,well-appointed interior.

Cons
Slow-witted transmission,
still not rear-wheel drive,
A-Spec diminishes the value proposition.

The 2019 Cadillac XTS delivers on Cadillac's traditional strengths with a smooth ride, quiet cabin, a big back seat and classy styling. It's a smart pick if you want a luxury sedan without the sporty pretenses of Cadillac's sportier sedans, such as a stiffer ride.

Pros
Spacious interior has high-quality materials throughout
Offers plenty of standard features
Optional turbo V6 engine provides strong power
Seats are eminently comfortable

Cons
Driver aids remain exclusive to upper trims
Touch-sensitive controls can be a hassle while on the move
Trunk opening is surprisingly narrow for a car of this size
Standard V6 struggles to get this big car moving

The 2019 Cadillac XTS feels purpose-built as an executive chauffeur’s chariot but provides a comfortable and pleasant ride from any seat.

Pros
Plenty of space, front and rear
Strong performance, especially in V-Sport trims
Solid, comfortable ride
Refined, high-end materials throughout, even in base models

Cons
Most safety features and driver aids are optional
Options and trim upgrades drive the price up—fast
Capacitive buttons sometimes confusing to use
