Driving Impression

The XTS performs well at three important things: engine, transmission, and ride. The base V-6 is strong, smooth and responsive, about to accelerate from zero to sixty in a respectable 6.8 seconds; but when the car is loaded with people and gear, it feels maxed out. The twin-turbo V-6 in the V-Sport is an awesome upgrade, cutting that time down to just over 5 seconds. The 6-speed automatic with both engines is well-programmed, well-behaved, and satisfying at higher speeds, but doesn’t perform so well at lower speeds.

The standard ride is magnificent. So what does that leave us to say about the available Magnetic Ride Control, with a rear air suspension? It’s even smoother than magnificent.

The XTS isn’t intended for serious cornering, so we don’t need to comment on its limitations. We can say, however, that it feels lighter than its actual weight of about two tons. Except maybe under braking. Standard Brembo front brakes get it stopped, but with some nosedive.

The V-Sport model raises the XTS game in the twisties, enough to satisfy some buyers who might want their big Cadillac sedan to be more taut. With a firmer suspension, the V-Sport feels more agile, and might even come close to qualifying as a sport sedan. Its standard all-wheel drive helps a lot.

Walk Around

The freshening in 2018 maintained the XTS’s upscale conservative looks, while heightening its appeal. The horizontal chrome in the grille, especially, is cleaner. The XTS is not an exuberant car, but neither is it stodgy like it might have been in the past. Its curves and angles are blended harmoniously, especially in the fenders, which do a decent job of softening the sedan’s abundant dimensions.

Interior Overview

Without saying that the XTS is not a driver’s car, we’re inclined to say that the cabin is best judged from the back seat. There, three adults have vast room to relax in luxury, with lovely upholstery and details. Big rear doors make it easy to climb in and out. Even six-footers have plenty of headroom.

That praised, the front passengers also get plenty of space. The seats are wide and flat, with almost endless power adjustment. The bolstering is a bit absent, as the XTS is not made for cornering, but there’s enough support for long hours of comfort. The seating position is a bit higher than average, so visibility out the windshield is ample.

The cabin materials and finishes are luxurious, with generous leather even in the base model. In the Platinum model, the surroundings reach beyond plush, not only with superior leather, but also glorious glossy wood.

The biggest cabin flaw, maybe the only one, is the switchgear. Traditional buttons are hard to find on the dashboard that is dominated by the 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen. Most of the functions are controlled by capacitive switches that can be frustrating.

Summary

If a comfortable ride is the most important selling point with a sedan like this, the Cadillac XTS comes out a winner. Add in a comfortable, spacious and luxurious cabin; a smooth and reasonably quick engine; and a transmission that’s easy to live with. The XTS is good at all of these things, in the base model–plus great fuel mileage on regular gas. The engine can run out of steam if the car is fully loaded, and we wish the transmission were as smooth at low speeds as it is at high speeds. If you want more sport than this, there’s the twin-turbo V-Sport. High-tech automatic safety features are available to drive the price up.
