Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Cadillac XT5 ranked #20 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Cadillac XT5 has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 31 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Low base price
Classic, elegant cabin
Smooth ride

Cons
Uninspired handling

By: 
usnews.com

The XT5's wireless smartphone charging pad gets an upgrade for 2019 and now offers 15 watts of juice (versus last year's 5 watts) to speed charging times. Other changes are limited to four new colors—Shadow Metallic, Red Horizon Tintcoat, Dark Mocha Metallic, and Manhattan Noir Metallic—and a new Kona Brown leather interior with Sapele wood trim.

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

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

The 2019 Cadillac XT5 is a solid, if forgettable, crossover. Consider the Caddy’s myriad rivals, too.

Pros
Comfortable ride
Strong V-6 power
Luxurious interior with right options
Low base price...

Cons
… that can climb quickly
Light on personality
Front-wheel drive model a bore
Infotainment can frustrate

By:

The 2019 Subaru Forester is a well thought-out crossover SUV with exceptional space, a great ride, and standard AWD without a fuel-economy penalty.

Pros
Fantastic utility
Comfortable ride
Great safety tech
Thrifty for a crossover
Good value

Cons
Sun Belters might want FWD
Manual and turbo gone
Sport trim about looks only
Dowdy styling

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Completely redesigned for 2019
More powerful 2.5-liter flat four-cylinder engine
Subaru's EyeSight system is standard on all models
Increased passenger and cargo space
2.0-liter turbocharged engine has been discontinued

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive
A full complement of driver assists is standard equipment
Off-road ability with better-than-average ground clearance
Generous cargo capacity

Cons
Handling isn't as composed as it is in some competitors
CVT automatic feels less responsive than a conventional automatic
Modest tow rating limits overall utility
Only available engine is underpowered

By: 
edmunds.com

It looks visually similar to the last model, so has enough changed to entice buyers into the all-new Subaru Forester?

Pros
Loaded with safety and convenience features
Ultra-wide passenger door opening aperture
Full-time all-wheel drive system
Fuel efficient four-cylinder petrol engine

Cons
Archaic three-year warranty
12,500km service intervals
Higher starting price
