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
