Even though the 2019 Cadillac XT5 offers only one engine choice, it has competitive power. Cadillac tuned the V6 XT5 engine to develop 310 horsepower. When you need to speed up quickly, the XT5 always does the job. An eight-speed automatic transmission helps the crossover feel strong. You can also use the XT5’s power to tow up to 1588 kg.
While this car is quite powerful, it is not high-performance. Cadillac has developed the XT5 for families who will spend a lot of time on the road. The suspension is configured for a smooth and slow ride. This new Cadillac overcomes harsh road surfaces.
If you travel frequently in winter, the 2019 Cadillac XT5 will keep you safe. Even the front-wheel drive model offers a snow/ ice driving mode that helps you keep your grip better on slippery surfaces. Optional all-wheel drive is the best choice for maneuvering on snow.
The car has a very good braking system. The brakes respond very well in emergency situations. If a deer suddenly runs out on the road or you are stopped by another vehicle, the braking power of the SUV will cope with this test.
The car has spacious interior. Passengers in the second row can even recline to have a nap, because there is a lot of legroom. Comfortable seats are also a strong point of the new XT5. Meanwhile, the absolutely flat cargo floor makes it easy to transport things.
The new 2019 Cadillac received top marks for its first-class impact protection. To prevent collisions, there is an additional Driver Assist package. There is also a three-dimensional vision camera.
Blind spots are incredibly dangerous. The Cadillac rear camera mirror can significantly improve the ability to see oncoming vehicles. Compared to a traditional rearview mirror, it provides a much wider field of view. A high-resolution camera installed inside the back door makes driving on busy roads less dangerous.
But there are several disadvantages of the car.
The new 2019 Cadillac XT5 received top marks for its first-class impact protection.
I didn’t like theCUE’s touch volume control, which can sometimes be annoying. In addition, the cue voice recognition program is not the best. There may be problems with the execution of certain commands.
Unfortunately, Cadillac doesn’t offer an additional engine. You can also expect that most of the XT5’s European competitors will offer more sporty handling.
As expected, the 2019 Cadillac XT5 is set for the city. It is not designed for tough off-road adventures. This SUV is definitely suitable as a comfortable and reliable family car. Safety innovations such as the Cadillac rearview mirror help make the XT5 particularly good on the highway.
