2017 Cadillac XT5 Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is the successor to the GM luxury brand's smallest SUV, the SRX. New this model year, it's a design that lays some heavy bets on lighter-weight construction, a library-themed interior, and other upscale cues that Cadillac hopes will lure away buyers from the likes of the Audi Q5 and Benz GLC.

We give the XT5 an overall rating of 7.3, an above-average score in a very competitive class. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

Styling, comfort, and utility

Review continues below

The softer, more organic exterior is only an evolutionary move from the SRX; but inside, the XT5 is a finely detailed, meticulously crafted winner. We're not convinced at all that the XT5 represents a major leap away from the SRX, at least in its stamped metal skin. The cabin is another story: its appointments are impressive in every way, with cut-and-sewn leather trim contrasting with three different woods, aluminum, or carbon fiber. There's also a Platinum edition with its own trim choices, like those on the big Escalade Platinum.

The XT5 is far more sophisticated inside, but it doesn’t make huge gains in passenger accommodations. The XT5 is built on a 112.5-inch wheelbase and checks in at 189.5 inches long. Compared to the outgoing SRX, it’s essentially the same length, width, and height; but its wheelbase is about two inches longer and its track an inch wider. That pushes the wheels out to the corners and, in theory, gives this vehicle a more grounded stance.

Cadillac boasts about that stretch, but the XT5 still is remarkably tight on head room, in a class of vehicle where owners—realtors, salespeople, empty-nesters—likely use the back seat for adults a little more often. The back seat slides to flex space given to passengers and cargo, but it's not wide enough to seat three adults across.

XT5 performance

The standard powertrain for the 2017 model year is a 3.6-liter V-6, making 310 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. It’s actually not the one that’s used throughout Cadillac’s sedan lineup, but a new V-6, paired with an 8-speed Aisin automatic that’s responsive, but nicely damped in its shifts. As such, the XT5 is quick and responsive, but doesn’t feel like a performance model in any way.

The same holds true for ride and handling. It's confident, but no cornering king. The XT5 has a strut front suspension with a five-link independent rear end, and the rack-mounted electric power steering delivers surprisingly precise, nicely weighted feel. Eighteen-inch wheels are standard, while 20-inch wheels are an option; the 20s come packages with a set of continuously adaptive shocks, while a new Platinum model gets more compliant bushings for an even better, quieter ride.

Front-wheel drive is the default setup for the XT5, but all-wheel drive is be available. It's a new system that uses twin clutches to deliver up to 100 percent of available torque to either the front or rear wheels. It’s designed more for slippery weather conditions, rather than performance driving, and the driver can go front-wheel-drive only with a Touring mode, for better efficiency.

XT5 safety and features

No safety data is available yet, but the XT5 sports a new rearview camera system shared with the CT6 sedan. It uses the traditional rearview mirror to display output from a rear-mounted camera, which Cadillac says improves vision of that field of view by up to 300 percent by zooming and formatting the resulting image, and displaying it in high resolution. We’re not yet convinced about this feature, but we do love the color head-up display and surround-view cameras.

Other safety features and options include forward-collision warnings with automatic braking; blind-spot monitors with cross-traffic alerts; adaptive cruise control; lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist; and automatic parking assistance.

Along with the usual standard power features, the XT5 offers the CUE interface, with the system here upgraded with a faster processor. Wireless phone charging, 4G LTE hotspot compatibility, and standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto round out the connectivity package. LED headlights and a gesture-controlled power tailgate will be offered.

The top Platinum model comes with a hands-free liftgate, a head-up display, a surround-view camera, ambient LED lighting, special leather dash and door trim, micro suede for the headliner and other trim, a unique exhaust outlet, and a more brightly chromed grille—plus standard 20-inch wheels.

First Drive: 2017 Cadillac XT5

– Tilting, Newfoundland

Catching three flights, a bus, and a ferry to a remote island at the eastern edge of North America isn’t exactly standard procedure for evaluating a midsize crossover – let alone the XT5, the latest example from Cadillac. Nevertheless, Cadillac descended upon Fogo Island (population: just about 3,000), which lies about 1,500 miles northeast of the company’s newly minted headquarters in New York City, to introduce its middleweight CUV.

It’s downright rare to see a Cadillac in the fishing communities of remote Fogo Island, yet the proprietor of the island’s only cafe, Flat Earth Coffee, hardly noticed the XT5. She did, however, immediately identify us as visitors. “You’re the only strangers here,” she said, handing over a cheesy pastry, fresh from the oven.

The XT5 evolves the SRX with more than a hint of CT6 in its details.

All of the inhabitants of the island might well know each other, but they seemed excited to meet the cadre of XT5 crossovers that arrived there en masse. First things first: In so many ways, the XT5 is antithetical to the Escalade, the model that has come to symbolize what Cadillac knows how to do well with an SUV. It was easy for enthusiasts to become disenchanted with the second-generation SRX, which ditched the first-gen’s V8 and rear-wheel-drive chassis. Despite the change in personality, sales figures crept ever higher as the SRX, Cadillac’s oldest model, skewed carlike, to become the marque’s bestseller.

The XT5 continues in that mold: soft around the edges, and actually kind of stylish. It’s the fresh, middleweight replacement for the SRX, and it sits below the Escalade in terms of size and gravitas. (A smaller XT3 is confirmed to be on the way, as is a larger XT7.) Throughout, the XT5 evolves the SRX with more than a hint of CT6 in its details.

Dogmatic to the midsize luxury crossover is bundling inoffensive exterior styling with soft-touch interior trimmings, and the XT5 has those down pat. Customers in this segment like having features available, and lots of them. The XT5’s standard and optional equipment list reads like a menu at an all-day country diner, headlined by the usual selection of infotainment options, as well as unique interior trim colors like Carbon Plum.

The most enjoyable part about experiencing the XT5 is simply being inside it.

More in line with what the competition offers is what’s under the XT5’s hood: a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V6, shared with the CTS, ATS, and CT6, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to either the front wheels or all four of them. Cadillac is said to be mulling whether to offer a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder, too, as it does in China. Thanks to cylinder deactivation that shuts off two of the V6’s cylinders when they’re not needed, the U.S.-market XT5 already does a clever imitation, and this helps push highway fuel economy as high as 27 miles per gallon (with front-wheel drive): average for the segment, representing a 10 percent gain in efficiency over the SRX.

Getting a feel for the spectrum of the 310-horsepower XT5’s dynamic performance was challenging on Fogo Island’s roads, which occasionally resemble the backroads of the Isle of Man but hardly comprise a proper test circuit. Steering feel errs on the side of lifeless and disconnected, no matter the drive mode you choose, but it’s about par for the midsize luxury crossover course. Dipping heartily into the throttle is a rewarding experience sure to delight weekend outlet shoppers and parents alike, but watch out for heavy amounts of torque steer off the line. Drive mode controls on both FWD and AWD models alter the programming of the transmission somewhat, but do little to enhance the driving experience. Piloting the XT5 isn’t unimpressive, but it isn’t satisfying, either. Set the (optional) adaptive cruise control and just enjoy the quiet ride.

It feels more premium than the Lincoln MKX and more special than the Lexus RX.

Cadillac wastes no breath touting the XT5’s capabilities off-road, and rightly so: Its 7.8 inches of ground clearance is about average for a segment of cars that rarely leave the beaten path, and there’s an unspoken, delicate element to the XT5’s styling that shames you into not wanting to damage its punim. Not that we didn’t try, nearly getting stuck when a photo shoot with a front-wheel-drive XT5 suddenly turned muddy. Switched into Snow/Ice mode, with throttle response tempered, the XT5 crept forward in some soft, wet grass without issue.

The most enjoyable part about experiencing the XT5 is simply being inside it. Shut the driver’s door and admire how quiet the double-glazed windows make the cabin. Run your hands over the dashboard, the seat material, and all of the everyday touchpoints (steering wheel, door panels, armrest). Each one feels like it’s going to last. The interior is far from perfect, marred by the discordant feeling of cheaply produced plastics surrounding an awkwardly shaped transmission lever with an unusual shift pattern, but it feels more premium than the Lincoln MKX and more special than the Lexus RX.

The 2017 Cadillac XT5 is a smartly designed crossover that should meet expectations of its intended audience.

The XT5 that you’ll want is the highest-trim, all-wheel-drive XT5 Platinum, which is nearly 25 grand dearer than the $39,990 starting price. It’s the one with all of the unique goodies, including a head-up display, semi-aniline leather, cameras that create a birds-eye view of the car for maneuvering, and a rear-view mirror that doubles as the screen for a liftgate-mounted video camera. As you can’t add these options individually, you’ll have to splurge for the whole package or be without them. No matter which XT5 trim level, however, the attention to detail throughout the cabin is surprising. And like so many of General Motors’ offerings today, the XT5 is a mobile wi-fi hotspot, available with subscription-based 4G LTE cellular service for passengers to get online.

Discovering luxury in an unexpected context was a recurring motif over two days of driving the XT5 on Fogo Island. It doesn’t take much to appreciate luxury in an area bereft of it, so a follow-up drive in our day-to-day lives will be needed to confirm how the XT5 will hold up in areas where it’s likely to find a home. For now, the 2017 Cadillac XT5 is a smartly designed crossover that should meet expectations of its intended audience who enjoyed the old model and are looking for an encore. Because it’s nice when things just feel familiar.

2018 Cadillac XT5 Review, Ratings, Specs, Prices, and Photos

You can’t quite have your 2018 Cadillac XT5 any way you want it, but you sure do have a lot of choices to make. With four trim levels on offer and a high level of standard and optional equipment including an 8.0-inch infotainment screen, the XT5 rates a solid 8 out of 10 here. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

Once you’ve narrowed your XT5 hunt down to front- or all-wheel drive (optional on all but the Platinum, where it’s standard), it’s time to look at trim levels: base, Luxury, Premium Luxury, and Platinum.

At a hair over $40,000 to start, the base XT5 is hardly basic. It rides on 18-inch alloy wheels and features niceties like a power liftgate, keyless ignition, power front seats, a wireless charging pad, Bose audio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and GM’s OnStar concierge and safety service that’s free for an initial trial period but eventually requires a monthly fee.

Other than paint color, there’s not a lot to customize with the XT5 base model.

From there, the lineup climbs to the XT5 Premium. It builds on the base around $7,000 worth of leather upholstery, heated front seats, panoramic moonroof, parking sensors, blind spot monitors, rear cross-traffic alerts, and auto-dimming mirrors. A few options let buyers tailor their XT5 Luxury. The Driver Awareness Package bundles forward collision warnings and emergency braking with active lane control, lane departure warnings, and automatic high-beam headlights. Big 20-inch alloy wheels are a pricey option, but about $1,000 for navigation and an extra six Bose-branded speakers seems more reasonable.

The XT5 Premium Luxury goes further by including the Luxury’s two option packages plus LED headlights, 20-inch alloy wheels, and an adjustable suspension. They can be further loaded up with a Driver Assist Package that brings adaptive cruise control and full-speed automatic braking to the equation.

Only available with all-wheel drive, the XT5 Platinum tops the range. It feels every bit a flagship, albeit a pricey one. Its dashboard features a mix between leather and suede, and its seats are covered in an upgraded leather. A head-up display system, heated rear seats, and an 8.0-inch screen in its instrument cluster help make it feel a bit more exclusive. But even the XT5 Platinum isn’t fully loaded. The Driver Assist Package optional on the Premium Luxury also requires an extra charge here.

All variants feature the Cadillac User Interface infotainment system—or CUE. It’s flawed, yet functional. What it lacks in utility, it makes up for in flash. There’s no volume knob; instead, a capacitive bar requires users to swipe their way to louder or quieter audio. On the bright side, there’s Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which work better than most native software, this one included. A 4G LTE antenna is also included that can turn the XT5 into a mobile hotspot for an extra monthly charge.

My First Impression is Very Positive

by Boris P. from Sammamish, WA on Sun Apr 09 2017

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.

Who Knew Safety and Sporty was soo Luxurious

by cadicarmann from Chicago, IL on Sat 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!

The smoothest ride ever

by Dlee from on Fri Apr 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.

Sexy and Sophisticated Car

by Luxury and Power Loving Lady from Lakewood Ranch, FL on Fri Apr 07 2017

I test drove many cars this time around including the Mercedes ML, Lexus RX, Toyota Highlander, Ranger Rover. Although the Lexus was my favorite overall, the dealership wouldn't work with me on the numbers. Plus, the XT5 feels roomier in the back seat for my growing 10 yr old twins.

A step up from BMW X Series

by The Long Ranger from Incline Village, Nevada on Sun Apr 23 2017

I had driven 3 BMW X3s for the last 9 years. I test drove a XT5 and decided right then to get one. Far more comfortable, especially on long drives. Handling is at least on par with the BMW, visibility is roughly the same. No complaints about acceleration and mileage on the road is in the 24-26 MPG range. Roomy interior including the rear seat. Impressive and distinctive styling. My main complaint is the Cue control/display arrangement. I think the touch screen control takes my eyes off the road for too long. I'm glad I took that test drive.

nothing better than a Cadillac

by mickey from LONG BEACH on Thu Sep 20 2018

I am 74 yrs. old and have owned many cars in my lifetime. All were General Motors from Oldsmobiles, Buicks, Pontiacs and Cadillacs. The ride comfort has gotten better and better. The styling has gotten sleeker and always have to take a second look. Most importantly is the confidence a driver has for the dependability in the name Cadillac.
