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.

Highs

  • The cabin is very spacious and quiet
  • Extremely posh and well-finished interior

Lows

  • The CUE controls are downright maddening
  • If you prefer the signature, plush ride of a traditional Cadillac, this is the wrong car for you

Best Version to Get

We suggest getting the Luxury trim version, which offers the handy driver's assistance package and navigation system. It also has most of the bells and whistles you'll find in higher trims, but it costs much less and skips the complex reconfigurable gauge cluster.
