The new Cadillac XT5 is a noteworthy vehicle that is clearly a little different from the the usual German-brand crossovers we got used to. The 2017 Cadillac XT5 occupies the same size space on the ground as the former SRX.
This Cadillac crossover’s wide doors, useful storage cubbies, 40-20-40-split folding rear seat, and flat cargo floor all make the loading process much simpler and smoother than it usually is. The XT5 composure is surprisingly beautiful: especially the vertical theme for the front fenders, which also allows the array of front lights to stack upright instead of horizontally. Beneath the sheetmetal, there is a new lightweight vehicle platform. The XT5 is 185 pounds lighter than the SRX it replaces.
The space within this new interior package is marked by the fact that the vehicle's wheelbase is stretched 2.0 inches. Moreover, all of this stretch is behind the front seats, so it benefits rear-seat passengers with 3.2 inches more legroom. The rear seat also reclines and slides rearward, the front seats are meant to be sporty rather than squishy.
This Cadillac XT5 seems to drive with coupe-style speed and enthusiasm, being a quite light and agile auto with a 310-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 revs. The Cadillac XT5 is a vehicle with real style, not only in the way it looks but also in the way it drives. Sure, it has the daily utility, yet it has the potential for grand touring that makes you want to drive to distant places and stay at fancy resorts. Cadillac keeps telling us the brand has a bright future, and the XT5 proves to us that it is making good speed in the right direction.
