Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Cadillac XT5 ranked #19 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Cadillac XT5 has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 30 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
High-class cabin styling and materials
Composed highway cruiser
Extensive list of advanced safety features available

Cons
No meaty engines available
Dull handling

Cadillac has changed next to nothing for 2018, introducing only a new optional exterior color: Harbor Blue Metallic (all of the XT5’s available paint colors, save for Radiant Silver Metallic, cost an additional $625 to $1225). The EPA has reduced highway fuel-efficiency ratings for both front- and all-wheel-drive variants, but there have been no actual mechanical updates. On the warranty front, last year’s four-year or 50,000-mile complimentary scheduled maintenance plan has been reduced to three years or 36,000 miles of coverage.

Pros
Quiet interior,
distinctive exterior styling,
spacious cargo bay.

Cons
Somewhat gruff V-6 powertrain,
muddled driving dynamics,
busy interior design.

The 2018 Cadillac XT5 is a solid luxury crossover, but so are its rivals. Shop carefully.

Pros
Luxurious ride
Strong V-6 engine
Quality feel inside and out
Good value at low end

Cons
Gets expensive fast
Forgettable personality
Front-wheel-drive dynamics occasionally show through
Some frustrating controls

The 2017 Audi Q7 gets a rakish new sport-wagon look, a finely detailed, tech-savvy interior, and serious chassis advancements underneath—including a dramatic weight loss, available rear-wheel steering, and a plug-in hybrid version.
Most models with a third row really put a damper on most kinds of driving enjoyment, whether that be zigzagging through tightly mountain-road esses, or just maneuvering through the parking lot of your local supermarket.

Pros
Sportier, more carlike look and feel
Finely detailed cabin
Innovative rear-wheel steering
Weight loss and better mpg

Cons
Best tech features limited to top trim
Third row not all that usable
Potentially very expensive

By:

The 2017 Audi Q7 ranks 4 out of 21 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The completely redesigned 2017 Audi Q7 scores well in the very competitive luxury midsize SUV class. In particular, its combination of interior quality, passenger and cargo space, and performance stand out. Each of these are important considerations for shoppers in this segment.

Pros
Potent V6 engine
Nimble handling
Luxurious interior

Cons
Less cargo room than rivals

By: 
usnews.com

Few three-row luxury crossovers are as desirable as the fully redesigned 2017 Audi Q7. Thanks to a supremely comfortable cabin, a powerful V6 engine and the latest high-tech features, the Q7 delivers capability and elegance in a package that'll make you feel as if you've arrived.
After a one-year hiatus, the Audi Q7 is back and fully redesigned for 2017. Highlights include revised styling, a roomier interior, new technology features, improved fuel economy and a new four-cylinder turbocharged engine.

pros
Plenty of the latest safety features and driving aids
Powerful supercharged V6 engine
First-class cabin comfort with vault-like quietness
Excellent IIHS safety scores

cons
Limited cargo space compared to most other midsize SUVs
