Cadillac is best-known for its full-size vehicles: the big sedans that once defined the brand, and today’s flagship Escalade SUV. And its unexpectedly fun-to-drive sports sedans also grab headlines. But its best-seller last year was the XT5 mid-size crossover, and Cadillac has updated it for 2020 with revised powertrain options, more standard features, upgraded infotainment, and refreshed styling.
Until recently, the five-passenger XT5 was Cadillac’s only crossover suv. It now slots between two recently introduced models — the compact XT4 and the seven-seat XT6 — and competes most closely against the Lexus RX 350 and Lincoln Nautilus. Cadillac’s distinct styling language sets the XT5 apart from the competition in an instant, and it also brings several intriguing features you won’t find on other brands’ SUVs. Prices start at $44,095.
