Cadillac XT5 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 Luxury 4-door SUV AWD Automatic
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Cadillac's XT5 luxury crossover is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Despite decent measured acceleration, it feels a bit lethargic in everyday driving, and the overall 20 mpg we measured is unimpressive. Cadillac's convoluted Cue infotainment system is a little more manageable, but the unintuitive gear selector is maddening. A rear-camera system that displays in the rearview mirror comes on top versions. The XT5 handles soundly, though the ride is too stiff unless you opt for the active damping suspension that comes on top-trim versions. Occupants are treated to a quiet cabin, supportive seats, and impressive cabin fit and finish.
