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

In addition to a power boost to 385 horsepower, the C43 sees styling and content changes for 2019. A new grille, new wheel designs, and revised front and rear bumpers bring the C43's design in line with other AMG models. Inside, a digital gauge cluster becomes an option and a new sport steering wheel is standard. New wood and metal interior trimmings as well as optional AMG Performance seats with heat and ventilation are now offered.

Pros
Gorgeous cabin,
stunningly quick,
choice of three body styles.

Cons
Rocky ride,
adding options quickly inflates the price.

Cons
Not as sporty as rivals
Confusing technology
Likely high base price

By:

Pricey and on the slighter side of mid-size, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drops a beautiful cockpit, huge dollops of safety, and effortless AMG brilliance into the sport-sedan mix.

Pros
Coupe, convertible, or sedan
A great-looking family
Powertrains range from great to GREAT
Best C-Class handling ever

Cons
Automatic-only
From $$ to $$$$
Tight rear seats
Shy on cargo space
Plug-in hybrid adds little
