Crossovers tend to the be entry point to many luxury car brands, and Cadillac is no exception. The SRX was long the brand’s best-selling model, and so its replacement, the new Cadillac XT5, has big shoes to fill. It needs to pack enough style and refinement to convince buyers to move up from mainstream crossovers, and it must compete with the ever more competitive set of luxury crossovers from Japan and Europe.
The Cadillac XT5 looks sharp inside and out, and offers a truly impressive feature set. But does it drive well enough to stack up against the best new luxury crossovers? Find out in our latest Why Buy? video.
