Benefits of Driving a 2013 Cadillac XTS Sedan

Starting at just under $45,000, the XTS competes with midsized luxury sedans from European manufacturers like BMW, Audi and Mercedes. Though there is some price overlap with Cadillac's own CTS, the cars are very different in character, with the CTS being significantly more performance oriented. In contrast the XTS offers more interior room and cargo space, both than the CTS and its European competitors. Available all-wheel drive across all model lines increases practicality and fits well with all the other new technologies available on the XTS.

What's new for 2013?

The XTS is a brand new car for 2013. It is big and roomy, rides wonderfully and has technology to spare. It is designed to carry five passengers and their luggage in quiet comfort for long periods of time. Though it's not a sports sedan, modern technology still allows the XTS to handle well and deliver good performance from its V6 engine.

Model Strengths

  • Spacious
  • luxurious
  • quiet and technology laden with available all-wheel drive

Model Review

Cadillac is obviously banking on the myriad of technological features available on the XTS to sell the cars. The interior is the largest benefactor of this technology with Cadillac choosing to introduce its CUE information and media control module on the brand new car. CUE, which stands for 'Cadillac User Experience' features an 8 inch touch screen set in the center stack that functions similarly to an iPad. It is able to respond to touch gestures as well as voice commands and utilizes much of the same technology as the before mentioned iPad. In fact so close is the association, that Cadillac is giving every customer who purchases a 2013 XTS a complementary iPad as part of the deal. Cadillac has even gone so far as to design a CUE app for the iPad, further integrating it into the car.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
