2019 Cadillac XT5 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Cadillac XT5?

One of the hottest segments in the automotive industry is the luxury SUV class, and one of Cadillac's entrants is the five-seat XT5. The XT5 is powered by a standard 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive models are available, and competitors include the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

What’s New on the 2019 Cadillac XT5?

An upgraded wireless charging system is designed to charge devices faster. Meanwhile, a newly available Sport Package features a gloss-black grille, LED headlights, clear-lens taillights, side steps, 20-inch gray aluminum wheels and sport pedals.

What Features in the 2019 Cadillac XT5 Are Most Important?

All XT5 models come with the Cadillac User Experience multimedia system. CUE includes an 8-inch touchscreen, four USB ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Navigation, wireless device charging and a Bose surround-sound stereo are available.

Other standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a power-adjustable steering column, remote start and a power liftgate. Convenience options include a heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, a head-up display, a panoramic moonroof, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a 360-degree camera system and a rearview camera mirror.

Available active safety features include forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, front and rear automatic emergency braking, and blind spot warning.

Should I Buy the 2019 Cadillac XT5?

The XT5 is slightly bigger than the compact luxury SUV norm, and a benefit of the extra size is good backseat legroom. Unfortunately, backseat headroom is limited, and the V-6's power underwhelms. We're also not fans of CUE's touch-sensitive controls for the air conditioning and audio systems, which can be frustrating to use.

Luxury better than Benz or BMW

by Neel from Toronto on June 17, 2020

This car is more spacious than X3 and at a lesser price. I really like the comfortable ride, spacious interiors and the price which is lower than other luxury cars. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
