It has a strong visual presence with proportions that convey the driving experience and the lightweight construction underneath the surface.
Like all Cadillac models, the interior is assembled with cut-and-sewn wrapped panels, rather than a reliance on the molded surfaces that dominate mainstream vehicles. The XT5’s interior is based on a philosophy of clean, modern elegance and craftsmanship. Interior surfaces inside the XT5 are wider and more horizontal in orientation, emphasizing space-efficiency. The rear-seat legroom in the 2018 XT5 is impressive as the rear seat reclines and slides, as well.
