Change can be challenging, but when it comes to the upgraded Cadillac crossover SUV at Cadillac of Norwood in Norwood, MA, the XT5 is just what customers are looking for. Before the XT5, the SRX had been the mid-level SUV of choice for Cadillac owners. But as that model has been phased out, the XT5 brings all the same perks and more into a comfortable and luxurious SUV.
An Improved, Modern Exterior
The XT5 might be a little unrecognizable in the Cadillac family at first. The iconic shape and trimmings of the SRX, with its straight edges and classic Cadillac wreath logo, are no more. Instead, they are replaced with curved lines, a more rounded appearance, and a larger grill featuring a more prominent Cadillac logo and no wreath. These changes will likely increase this model's overall appeal and audience, bringing Cadillac SUVs to a broader set of buyers.
An Interior Focused on Luxury
One of the main features drivers associate with luxury vehicles is the high-end details, yet, as important as those are to the owner, the manufacturers usually cut corners where they can keep prices affordable. The XT5 doesn't sacrifice anything for comfort. While the SRX had accents of leather throughout the interior, this newer SUV includes a plethora of hand-stitched leather on the dashboard, doors, center column, steering wheel, seats, and gearshift. It brings a new level of luxury to this vehicle. Not only does it look and feel fantastic, but it adds to the improved quietness within the cabin for a smooth riding experience.
It doesn't matter if you're a single traveler, a daily commuter, or a family of five; having enough room isn't a detail you expect to sacrifice in an upscale SUV, and you won't have to worry about that here. Compared to its predecessor, the SRX, the all-new XT5 has noticeably more room in many aspects. Owners will enjoy a larger storage area within the console, two extra cubic feet in the cargo area, and more leg room in the back for passengers. If you're a car owner who prefers doing your own car cleaning, these larger spaces make getting in and out for cleaning purposes much more effortless.
Engine Performance and Safety
If you enjoyed the performance bargain driving of the SRX, you won't miss anything with the XT5 as it's built with the same 3.6-liter V6 engine, delivering 308-310 hp. However, the difference comes with the improved gas mileage in the newer model. The SRX had a city/highway MPG rating of 17/24, while the XT5 rating is 19/27. This enhanced efficiency usually results in better engine life and lower costs for repairs and maintenance for the owner. The XT5 also has a 5-star crash-test safety test rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
