John McPeck says:

strange that Cadillac didn’t update to one of their newer 8 or 9 speed automatics…

N&T Auto Reviews says:

I absolutely love this updated XTS. It’s just so much nicer looking now.

attcenter says:

Those gauges look so out of place on a otherwise beautiful car.

5timesAcademyAwardswinner Kirk Lazarus says:

That headlight is hideous …

Jordan Little says:

So my mom’s XT5s cruise isn’t working properly and the transmission is acting weird, but we’re okay that it’s in the service department because they gave her a brand new 2018 XTS loaner car. I love driving it. It’s extremely soothing. The steering is so effortless and it’s insane. And it looks so much better than the pre facelift XTS. However the infotainment screen and center stack buttons are eh (the XT5 is way more nicer and intuitive) and the transmission has been hesitant to upshift a couple times. You can tell a couple of the interior amenities aren’t from the most recent Cadillacs, but it’s still really refined. Also I’m really still confused as to where the XTS fits on Cadillacs lineup. One thing I found quirky is the extremely thin steering wheel with no contouring grip points, but that’s okay. Also looking outward you can’t see the hood at all. I found that very different. I like the shifter in this car as opposed to the wannabe BMW shifter in the XT5. Another thing I found is that the XTS luxury has surround vision and the XT5 premium luxury doesn’t have surround vision which I found ridiculous. Overall I have enjoyed driving the car the last couple days.

Bong Lim says:

Chic! Nice review

Night Shift says:

Thanks for the very thorough review, I appreciate all the work you put into presenting these videos.
The Cadillac is beautiful.

Matthew's Car Corner says:

Hey Car Confections, I got a question for you. Does CarPlay and Android Auto require cellular/mobile data?

Tim Proost says:

The trunk emblem is a trunk release button. There are also different settings for the digital dashboard. Great tour!

Ashwin Jogaratnam says:

Nice job
