Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

The 2018 Buick LaCrosse is a proper flagship, a refined and comfortable sedan with only a few quirks.

Pros
Elegant styling inside and out
Good infotainment system
Silent cruiser
New mild-hybrid is relatively thrifty

Cons
Advanced safety tech is pricey
Odd trim level walk
Not as roomy inside as its size would suggest
Expensive when fully loaded

By:

A new base engine debuts for 2018. Dubbed eAssist, it features a small electric motor and battery in addition to a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The result is exceptional fuel economy for a large sedan. The V6 engine also gets a new nine-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel-drive availability is extended to the Essence trim level.

PROS
Comfortable and composed ride on rough roads
Quiet and genuinely luxurious interior
Surprisingly adept handling with Dynamic Drive package
Good fuel economy

CONS
Questionable price jump from base trim level to Preferred
Low-mounted seats front and back may limit comfort
