Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Strong V6 engines and a smooth-responding, well-behaved 6-speed automatic set the tone for satisfying performance in a big sedan. Regular models can accelerate to 60 mph in a respectable 6.8 seconds. An XTS feels passably swift, but might be a tad overmatched when fully packed.

For a more sizzling big-car experience, the twin-turbo V6 in V-Sport editions is the logical choice. That one can hit 60 mph in just over 5 seconds.

No XTS is really meant for dashing through serious curves, but the more taut-feeling V-Sport comes close to qualifying as a sport sedan. Every XTS V-Sport has all-wheel drive, which helps the sedan make best use of the additional engine power.

What makes any XTS a great cruising machine isn’t its handling talents, so much as its magnificent ride quality. Available Magnetic Ride Control, with a rear air suspension, smooths the ride further yet.

Except when braking, an XTS doesn’t feel as hefty as its two-ton weight suggests. Even with standard Brembo front brakes, nosedive is noticeable at times. V-Sport models feel a little more agile, helped by a firmer suspension.

Fuel economy isn’t bad for a large sedan. With front-wheel drive, the 2017 V6 was EPA-rated at 18/28 mpg City/Highway, or 22 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive dropped the estimate to 17/26/20 mpg. The V-Sport managed only 16/23 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined. All versions run on regular-grade gasoline.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Modest updating for 2018 maintains the upscale conservative appearance of the XTS, while improving its overall appeal. Nothing has changed in the body profile, but several details have been freshened.

No one is likely to call an XTS exuberant. Few will be directly reminded of oversize big Cadillacs of yesteryear, either. Designers melded curves and angles in a harmonious totality, while largely concealing the sedan’s relatively abundant dimensions.

Horizontal chrome elements have given the grille a cleaner appearance, in keeping with other Cadillac models. Even the front fenders have been revised.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Some cabins are best judged from the driver’s seat. For others, the most worthy assessments are made from the back seat. Cadillac’s XTS falls into the latter group.

Front occupants get plenty of space, on seats that are wide and flat, with abundant power adjustments. Seats may be short on bolstering, but the driver and front passenger can anticipate adequate support and all-day comfort. Visibility is helped by a seating position that’s a little higher than customary.

In back, three adults can expect vast room to stretch out in luxuriant comfort, while reveling in the lovely upholstery and detail work. Large rear doors make it easy to get in and out of the back seat. Headroom isn’t a concern for passengers over six feet tall.

Finishes are luxurious even in the base model, which flaunts generous leather. Surroundings reach past plush at Platinum trim level, which boasts glorious glossy wood as well as better-grade leather.

Traditional buttons are in short supply on the dashboard, which is highlighted by an 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment. Capacitive switches that control most functions can become frustrating.


New Car Test Drive

Ride comfort is a strong selling point for big sedans, and the XTS scores highly. All versions, led by the base model, are quite well-equipped. For performance, V-Sports are the prime choice, but prices are hefty. Valuable active-safety features are available, but mainly at additional cost and limited to specific trim levels.
