Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Boasting a strong and responsive V6, the XT5 promises fine body control and confident handling, with less body leans than the SRX. Flat spots, which occurred midway through the rev range of the previous engine, are gone completely with the new V6.

The 8-speed automatic has even-spaced ratios and yields precise shifts. Even when traveling up a long grade, the powertrain settles swiftly into an appropriate gear for the occasion. Platinum models include ZF’s continuous damping control, which minimizes harshness and undulations that might enter the cabin.

Rather than a shift lever, the XT5 gets Cadillac’s first shift-by-wire setup, which involves more button-pushing than might be expected. Pauses between each shift could be an issue when parking, especially when in a hurry, or trying to rock the vehicle if it gets mired in snow.

Cadillac’s all-wheel-drive system is intended for rain, snow, or icy roads, but it increases stability even in dry weather. The twin-clutch configuration lets up to 100 percent of power be sent to either front or rear wheels.

Electric power steering feels settled in highway driving, precise and nicely weighted for urban maneuvers. Sport mode affects not only steering feel, but throttle sensitivity and transmission response, but the difference isn’t substantial. Although the ride is quiet and well-controlled, engine sound can be a little too noticeable.

Fuel-efficient for its class, the 2017 Cadillac XT5 is EPA-rated at 19/27 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. With all-wheel drive, the EPA estimate drops to 18/26 mpg City/Highway. Real-world driving should yield similar figures. Active Fuel Management lets the engine run on four cylinders during steady cruising, while a Stop/Start system can shut it off at stoplights.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

In contrast to the sharply creased, chiseled look that identified Cadillacs a decade ago, the XT5 has a softer, curvaceously organic appearance. A few elements of the past remain, such as vertical-style lights and a bold grille.

Overall, the look may be considered less assertive, yet more attractive and even somewhat flamboyant. Highlights include crisply-shaped fenders, abundant brightwork, and a front end that stands out with its dramatic LED lighting.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

More sophisticated than the SRX, the Cadillac XT5 gives rear passengers three additional inches of leg space. Yet, headroom is seriously tight, resulting from upright seats and an arching roofline, not ideal for adults riding in the rear.

Front seats are excellent: a bit firm, with ample thigh support, helped by extendable cushions. The split back seat folds flat and also slides fore/aft several inches, to allow extra space for either occupants or cargo. A ratcheting fence helps keep grocery bags and small items from sliding around the cargo area.

Cabin details impress, with meticulous detailing and craftsmanship. Cut-and-sewn leather trim contrasts with a choice of woods, aluminum, or carbon fiber. Tasteful and attractive, the interior rivals top luxury models from Japan and Germany. The dashboard has a horizontal aspect, with a central touchscreen.

Cadillac’s CUE interface has been upgraded, using a swifter processor, but it can still frustrate users. Wireless phone charging, wi-fi via a 4G LTE hotspot, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included.


New Car Test Drive

The all-new 2017 Cadillac XT5 is a superb premium midsize crossover, with a comfortable, nicely detailed cabin, responsive power, quiet, sophisticated ride and handling, and available all-wheel drive.
