About Cadillac XTS

Slotting between the larger CT6 and the sporty CTS, the 2018 Cadillac XTS luxury sedan fills a gap left by the aging DTS, a car that was popular with many longtime Cadillac customers. The XTS is a big sedan celebrating luxury and comfort over razor-sharp handling, cramped rear quarters and overly snug seats. As such, the XTS is a wonderful rival to such cars as the Volvo S90 and Lexus GS. Of course, the 2018 XTS is loaded with all of Cadillac’s best creature comforts, as well as the latest active-safety assists. Its twin-turbocharged V6 is a potent reminder not every car needs a V8, yet its front-wheel-drive (FWD) layout precludes it from keeping pace with many rear-drive competitors. Opt for all-wheel drive (AWD).

"By to days standards this is a beautiful automobile compared to most others but does not compare in design, comfort, ride of the older models but neither does Lincoln . It is a very nice car but most cars seem to be clones of one another, Chrysler is doing a great job on styling. I had a cts wagon and loved it, fun to drive, I felt I needed to upgrade, tried Lexus, Lincoln, but decided on the xts because of my service center, they are great. You cannot go wrong this car. Nice car ."

"This is a car that was slow in arriving due to GM's financial problems, but it finally arrived in the late summer of 2012. I have always driven Sedan DeVille's, a SeVille, and a DTS in past years about 8 in the last 25 years. I expected much from this car, and for the most part Cadillac delivered. The car offers most anything one could ask for, and a couple of things that really serve no purpose such as the "CUE" System. I'm told if you own a I Phone CUE is easy to adapt to. It takes a few days to figure it out, but you'll get it. I just think it's silly to have to go thru several touch screens just to turn the A/C on, but that's me. Most everything is controled by touch commands or voice commnands. Of course half the time you have to keep repeating voice commands, and I have perfect language skills. I can't speak for a 2014 XTS, but my 13 has a lot of minor problems that are easily corrected, but these should have been corrected in manufacturing. Oh well, you'll still love this car. Plenty of room both front and rear, and a cabin that's whisper quiet thanks to new sound insulation throughout. It's almost erie it's so quiet. Great milage in city driving...18.9. That's great for a car over 4400 lbs. I would have preferred a V8, but the V6 has adiquit power. Perfect fit and finish, and loaded with new technology."

"I can't think of another car for $46,000 that gives you this much luxury and value. In 20,000 miles, I can honestly say I look forward to getting behind the wheel each day. Great styling - luxurious interior - library quiet ride. Lease is up shortly and i really rue the day I have to turn it in. I'm ready for another XTS or perhaps an SRX (only because of utility of SRX) Would recommend to everyone."
