Cadillac XTS

Cadillac XTS 2017 sedan Trim Shown: 2017 Premium Luxury sedan FWD Automatic

This large sedan has a beautifully executed interior, perfect for limo duty. The XTS is roomy, luxurious, and quiet inside, with comfortable seats. It comes as either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. But the ride feels too ordinary for a luxury car, and handling isn't sporty. The 3.6-liter V6 powertrain lacks finesse, mostly because of its coarse sound when prodded. Still, it ultimately performs well and returns a respectable 22 mpg overall. The unintuitive Cue infotainment system is frustrating to use, and the high rear deck impedes the view aft. A V-Sport version with a twin-turbo 3.6-liter engine gives the XTS V8-like power. Reliability has improved to above average.

Cadillac XTS 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Sedan

As a replacement for the plush DTS flagship, the XTS falls short. It handles better, but the ride is jittery and feels very ordinary for a luxury car. Further, the 3.6-liter V6 sounds coarse when prodded. The XTS does have a quiet, posh, and beautifully finished interior however, and the seats are very comfortable. But the touch-activated CUE infotainment interface is unintuitive and frustrating to use, and the high rear deck impedes the view aft. Various safety systems, including lane-departure detection, will vibrate the driver's seat as a warning. A high-performance Vsport version with a twin-turbo V6 is also available, and all-wheel drive is an option on all but the base-trim versions.
