As the CTS and CT6 all demonstrate, Cadillac can build brilliant-driving sedans. But the brand's SUVs lack the same magic. Built on a new platform, the Cadillac XT5 is a descendant of the SRX but it’s neither here nor there. Battling a field of worthy competitors, the XT5 isn't as rewarding to drive as a German compact luxury SUV, nor does it pamper you like a Lexus RX.
Like many contemporary General Motors redesigns, weight reduction was a primary goal with the XT5. Indeed, it registered 225 pounds less on our scales than the SRX. Among other things, this aids acceleration and fuel economy, neither of which were SRX strengths.
