Seats are built for long-haul comfort

Cons
Small windows and mirrors make it hard to see out of the back

For 2020, Cadillac gives the XT5 a mild makeover that's immediately apparent from its new bumpers, grille design, and wheel options. The other changes include a newly standard turbocharged four-cylinder that joins the V-6 as the only engine choices. The lineup is now headlined by the Sport model that replaces the old Platinum moniker. However, the latter becomes an option package that adds more technology and top-of-the-line interior appointments. The Sport model has a specially tuned suspension and steering system that attempt to increase driver engagement.

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

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