Cadillac

GM’s flagship brand builds cars and SUVs with edgy styling and impressively finished interiors. Recent models have had a focus on reduced weight and improvements in handling. In testing we found that Cadillac's sedans are far better vehicles than its SUVs. The CT6, as well as the ATS and CTS, are more sporty to drive than their German competitors. But the large Escalade has ongoing reliability concerns, and the new XT5 SUV is neither luxurious nor sporty. In addition, the infuriating and difficult-to-use Cue touch-screen system continues to hold the brand back. “V” branded models are especially sporty and engaging to drive. Reliability has not been a brand strength.
