At 6'5", I have always lusted over luxury sports sedans that did not fit my body. I love the handling, steering, control and feel of a quality sedan, but have had to settle in the past for vehicles that are too small ( BMW, Lexus) or comfortable vehicles that lack performance ( Ford F150).
I recently reentered the market, considering Infiniti, Lexus, Cadillac, BMW, Porsche and Audi. My teenage daughter researched and recommended Cadillac, informing me that Cadillac was super cool and hip. She was correct.
My daughter took me to Earnhardt Cadillac in Scottsdale. I was impressed with the exteriors, interiors, technology and engineering. I sat in the XTS and was wowed by the fit and feel of the vehicle. It fit me like a glove. My 5'11 daughter can fit comfortably behind me, with my seat all the way back.
Aesthetically, the vehicle is gorgeous. As my daughter noted, most cars are indistinguishable, but the Caddy line is very distinct; Angular, masculine, sexy, strong. It does not look like a dressed up Buick.
Most importantly, the driving experience is superb. Intuitive handling coupled with excellent acceleration . Great mileage. Great feel. The cabin technology is very " iPad like."
By the way, I did test drive similar vehicles from German Manufacturers. All were excellent, but priced approximately $30-$50k more than the XTS. And I prefer the XTS.
I loo forward to driving this vehicle for the next 3 years. Welcome back, Cadillac.
