Auto123 reviews the 2018 XT5

Auto review has just posted up a first drive review of the new XT5. With steep competitors from Lexus, BMW, Audi, Lincoln and Volvo, Cadillac is hoping that both this redesign and the new XT4 will help bolster their sales. The full review can be found here and here's a quick look at the pros and cons they noted.
Quote:
Pros
Exceptionally refined ride
Quiet cabin
Good sightlines
Well equipped with standard features
Generous rear cargo space
Decent highway fuel economy

Cons
Ordinary accelerations
No audio volume knob!
Gear knob is kind of non-intuitive, hence annoying
Rear-seat headroom only average
That price tag spikes alarmingly as you head up the trim levels
The range that the cylinder-deactivation system actually works in is disappointingly narrow
Even the Platinum edition came with fairly non-descript wheels

Its pretty crazy that there is a $20k difference in price between the base model ($49k) and top end Platinum trim ($71k). Interested buyers are going to have to carefully consider which additional options are really worth the extra cash. I know typically those in the market for a luxury crossover aren't too concerned with performance figures, but the XT5 is still lagging behind key rivals in the powertrain department.
