Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

The XT5 delivers on the most important quality a crossover can offer on the road, with its comfortable ride.

The XT5 feels subtly sporty. Robust acceleration comes from its familiar V-6, especially in front-drive models. Its 8-speed automatic runs through the gears with crisp action.

The fully-independent suspension yields a gratifying ride. On upper trim levels, a magnetic suspension adjusts damping continuously, making a noticeable difference. That’s especially helpful on Platinum models, with their 20-inch wheels.

Handling with competence, the XT5 has light power steering that tracks well on interstates when it’s set to comfort mode. Sport mode adds heft, but most drivers won’t notice.

Even with all-wheel drive, the XT5 is no off-road trekker. Then again, neither are its competitors.

An XT5 is reasonably thrifty, considering its V-6 power, and uses regular gasoline. Front-wheel-drive models are EPA-rated at 19/26 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops each number by 1 mpg, to 18/25/21 mpg. All versions use one of the better stop/start systems.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Although the XT5 wears Cadillac’s most recent design themes, it’s softer and more subtly shaped than the luxury automaker’s other crossovers and SUVs. Straddling the dimensional line between compact and mid-size, it has a tall profile and subtle details.

It’s an exercise in restraint, though swept-back vertical LED headlights are fairly dramatic.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Crisply styled, the handsome XT5 cabin feels luxurious. Real or simulated wood trim decorates the interior. High-quality materials translate to a satisfying feel inside, though the XT5 Platinum dresses up with lots of metallic trim.

Base models feature durable synthetic leather upholstery. Upper trim levels turn to genuine leather. Platinum takes another step, into semi-aniline leather.

Standard power-adjustable front seats provide solid support. Luxury and higher trim levels incorporate lumbar adjustment.

Because an XT5 is somewhat narrower than many competitors, space can be snug in the back seat. Two adults fit comfortably, however.

On the dashboard, the infotainment display is visually appealing, even flashy. Capacitive-type touch buttons for climate control hide below the dashboard trim. Though it can take a while to learn, the infotainment system includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen and offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

Cargo space totals 30 cubic feet, but can be enlarged by moving the 60/40-split rear bench fore and aft. Maximum capacity, with rear seatbacks down, reaches 63 cubic feet.


New Car Test Drive

The 2019 Cadillac XT5 offers an upscale feel and comfortable front seats – par for the luxury crossover course. It’s spacious and has subtle touches of luxury and charm, and its V-6 drivetrain has ample acceleration.
