For automobile fans such as myself, Cadillac is and has always been held in high regard. Cadillac has a reputation for crafting quality, luxury-based vehicles that are a showcase of comfort and style, quality and detail. With a legacy of luxury and class, Cadillac’s modern fleet of vehicles offer an edgy aesthetic and contemporary technology, seamlessly blending its past with the future. I recently had the opportunity to give the 2019 Cadillac XT5 a spin, and it’s everything I thought it would be.
The XT5 is Cadillac’s version of the luxury crossover, offering ample space, a sharp yet understated design, and all the comfortable, luxurious details Cadillac has become known for. First impressions mean everything, and the 2019 Cadillac XT5 starts off on a high note. The exterior style is sleek and edgy, modern and eye-catching, with details that continue to the interior. The cabin boasts deluxe accommodations and plenty of passenger space for everyone. The upscale materials used throughout are a nice touch, providing a comfortable and detailed interior.
The XT5 is outfitted with an array of modern tech features including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen comes standard, while an onboard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot allows you to stay connected anywhere and everywhere. There are four USB ports located throughout the cabin and even a wireless inductive phone-charging pad situated between the two front seats. The eight-speaker stereo from Bose pumps out crystal clear audio, and can be upgraded to a 14-speaker system. In terms of cargo space, the 2019 Cadillac XT5 is impressive. There is plenty of space for everything one could possibly need, from your gear to kid stuff, groceries, outdoor equipment and much more. While I don’t think the XT5 was built with outdoor adventures in mind, it’s certainly capable. The split-folding rear seat is easy, expanding cargo space even more.
Cadillac has also outfitted the XT5 with a bevy of safety and driver-assistance features. This includes available automated emergency braking, lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control. The 2019 Cadillac XT5 is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that provides enough power to get where you need to be—though don’t expect to get there quickly. It’s not the most powerful crossover SUV on the road, but it does provide decent gas mileage for its size. The EPA fuel-economy estimate is 26 mpg, which drops by 1 mpg in the all-wheel-drive iteration.
The 2019 Cadillac XT5 was designed for anyone looking for ample space and outstanding comfort with a dose of luxury. Their attention to detail is found from bumper to bumper, offering enough room for an adventure or a trip to the store, while also coming with the luxurious accommodations that Cadillac is known for.
