I love everything about this car. Comfort, very quiet, smooth ride, interior and exterior design, performance. I am rating 5 stars reliability with some reservations, as I bought my XT5 brand new, but with very good warranty. The gas mileage on average 22 mpg. Dash board is very user friendly and pleasantly designed. Cadillac XT5 CUE is very easy to use. Very spacious trunk.

get rid of stop/start feature

Car is great love the interior, but get in stop and go traffic and you neck will snap off . The stop /start system is very annoying, they say its seamless but the car shudders every time it engages you really feel it. Not a great feeling on a $55,000 car, also with 8 speed transmission it shifts too much in around town driving. I like to save gas and all but I would have bought Smart car if it was that important too me.

by from Dix Hills, NY on February 18, 2017

I just picked up my new XT5 and I'm so happy I decided on this model. The ride and power is better than I had expected. This auto has all the luxury making driving a pleasure.

We like all of the features and styling especially the interior. We do not like the Auto/ Stop feature but are starting to get used to it. Wish there was a program available to shut it off like there has been on some previous models. The ride and the lack of road noise is very enjoyable.

Who Knew Safety and Sporty was soo Luxurious

by from Chicago, IL on May 20, 2017

I drive the Base Model 2017 Cadillac XT-5 and Cadillac has outdone themselves with this SUV I fell in love with it after the first drive on the expressway, which I drive frequently for my work commute, through loud construction and rough pavement the cabin remains quite through the noise and it drives smooth over the bumpy pavement as if it was floating on air! The Safety features are phenomenal, Love how the review mirror lights of the XT-5 flash when a vehicle enters your blind spot, the standard backup camera is crystal clear, the dash display flashes when you are veering out of your lane, and the speedometer display flashes the speed limit when you are driving too fast, which can be a bit annoying, but it just shows how much the vehicle is designed to care about the safety of the driver and passengers. The model I drive doesn't have a CD Player, but the media is connected via an aux cord or Bluetooth mode and what I like is that it will not connect to BT unless you are in Park which is a great safety feature if you have a teenage driver. The interior design of the XT-5 is crafted with the uttermost of perfection. I love how searching all the functions and buttons on the dashboard is not so intimidating as it can be in some cars that I have driven. Everything is at a fingertips touch! The touchscreen is a perfect size for fingers and viewing. The LED lighting is placed perfectly so there is never an interior blind spot during night driving! Black on Black leather and silver trim everywhere! As a driver in cold Chicago having not only heated seats, but a HEATED STEERING WHEEL!... Need I say more.... BUT I will I must not forget to mention the sound system kicks some major bass! The driveability and responsive handling of the XT-5 is just like a sports car, especially when you shift into the manual mode for a split second makes you forget it's a SUV. Also a huge plus is this SUV has some weight and stability to it. Those heavy rain and wind commutes on the expressway, when that big semi- truck passes you, the XT-5 stays anchored it doesn't wince, sputter, or shutter. The fuel efficiency is great as well, I fill up on $35 once a week and that's the end of that hassle. The XT-5 engine has an auto- shut- off feature when you come to a complete stop at a red light and when you release the brake it starts right back up without skipping a beat ready to take on the pavement. A luxury vehicle like the XT-5 that doesn't take premium fuel is okay in my book! Now I will admit, this SUV is a pretty penny, but you can't put a price on safety in my opinion. The 2017 Cadillac XT-5 is a SUV with a new type of standard of safety... The fact that it is in fact a luxury vehicle is a great bonus! I recommend this SUV to anyone who needs a great rental for a family road trip, for the UBER Select drivers or chauffeurs looking for a ride that will leave your costumers talking and coming back, for the parents looking for a safe SUV for the family who may have a new driver in the family, or even the driver like myself who likes to sit-up a bit higher in an SUV that has stability, but an essence of a sports car... I recommend the 2017 Cadillac XT-5 for us and for everyone!

Very Disappointed

by from Lakewood, NJ on April 20, 2017

I owned 3 (2010, 2012 & 2014) Cadillac SRXs before I leased the XT5. If I never drove those cars my rating for the XT5 would have been higher. But the SRX was so much more car for a lot less money. ...
I owned 3 (2010, 2012 & 2014) Cadillac SRXs before I leased the XT5. If I never drove those cars my rating for the XT5 would have been higher. But the SRX was so much more car for a lot less money. The XT5 drives about the same as the SRX but the SRX is more luxurious. It felt more robust too. The interior of the XT5 is a lot less luxurious as the SRX. In all the car is a disappointment especially considering it cost $5,000 more than the same SRX model. I wish I had kept my SRX.

The smoothest ride ever

by from on April 21, 2017

From the moment you get in the car, you know what Cadillac is about! Keyless start and doors, using just a fob, everything greets you. Push button start, kind of weird shifter with side button.

Reverse and park gear shift positions are unnecessarily different. Cue infotainment system is improved from past model but would like to see knob for volume control. Current setup makes driver take eyes off the road. Power and handling are good. Wish Cadillac wreath emblems were maintained. Almost seems like ashamed to show vehicle is a Cadillac...
