Reviews Summary

If you’re looking to impress potential new customers with your luxury crossover, tossing a Mustang engine under the hood is a good start. Never mind that it’s not the V8—a turbo 4-cylinder doesn’t mean what it once did. The last time a Mustang had a turbo four was back in the mid-'80s with the SVO, a car my father actually owned. Also a 2.3-liter engine, the SVO managed just 175 hp and still impressed for the time. This time around we're looking at nearly 300, and with the torque to match. Add some sexy interior materials, an optional adaptive suspension, and a panoramic sunroof, and you’ve got a crossover that’s hard to ignore.

Reviews Summary

The Cadillac XT5 offers plenty of the luxury experience for less money and fuss than some of its competitors. Even so, this SUV lacks the driving excitement and engagement that the Europeans offer, and it can’t match the style and tech of the Korean and Japanese brands. If it were our only choice, there’d be little to complain about, but when there are so many other great options in the same segment—including the Lincoln Nautilus, BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, Genesis GV70, and Porsche Macan—the Cadillac loses some of its shine.
