The 2018 Cadillac XT5 is a midsize luxury SUV that’s slotted below the full-size three-row Escalade in the brand’s SUV lineup. Packed with technology and convenience features, the XT5 has a starting MSRP of $39,590.

Cons: Complex Infotainment, No Third Row, Can Get Pricey
Looks Best In: Crystal White Tricoat exterior/Sahara Beige interior
Competition: BMW X5, Lincoln Nautilus, Acura RDX, Infiniti QX50, Audi Q5, Volvo XC60
Summary: The 2018 Cadillac XT5 is a strong contender in the midsize luxury SUV market. It offers comfort, safety and luxury in a very nicely designed package. With an engaging driving experience coupled with a forgiving ride, the 2018 Cadillac XT5 is a compelling choice in its class.
