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

Unless the NX 300 F Sport's adjustable suspension and tighter seat bolstering are must-haves, we recommend sticking with the more comfortable NX 300. Add the Comfort package for its heated and ventilated front seats and blind-spot detection, and you'll have a well-equipped, quiet and refined luxury compact SUV.

PROS
Generous backseat room
Available power-folding rear seat
Cabin is very quiet at highway speeds

CONS
Remote Touch Interface can be distracting to use
Limited rear cargo volume
