What's New in the 2019 Cadillac XT5?

There are only minor equipment updates for 2019. Most notable are safety features, as all but the base trim now includes forward-collision warning, low-speed automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assist.

Which XT5 is the Best?

The base XT5 offers a tremendous amount of value for the money, especially given all its standard tech features you often have to pay extra for with competitors. As you move up the trim lineup, however, the XT5 gets awfully pricey, and that value proposition disappears. A nearly $66,000 XT5 Platinum, in particular, is questionable.

Cadillac XT5 Safety

Is the 2019 Cadillac XT5 a Safe Car?

Each XT5 comes with airbags (driver and front-passenger, front and rear side-curtain and driver-knee), rear parking sensors, a backup camera and OnStar emergency communications (automatic accident notification, an SOS button and stolen vehicle locator). All but the base trim come standard for 2019 with forward-collision warning, low-speed forward automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring, a rear cross-traffic warning system and the Safety Alert Seat that vibrates the driver seat in response to the above warning systems. Standard on Platinum and optional on Premium Luxury, the Driver Assist package adds higher-speed forward automatic braking, and reverse automatic braking.

Government crash test scores unusually differ by drivetrain, with the AWD XT5 getting a 5-star overall rating and the FWD model getting a 4-star one. The 4-star frontal and 5-star overall are the same with both drivetrains. The non-profit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the XT5 the best-possible ratings for crashworthiness and crash avoidance technologies. It missed out a Top Safety Pick award because of a Marginal headlight score.

2019 Cadillac XT5 vs the competition

2019 Lexus RX -- Given the XT5's exterior size, V6 engine and heftier price, the midsize Lexus RX should be considered as well. Its finely crafted cabin is particularly impressive. You can also get an RX hybrid.

2019 Lincoln Nautilus -- The SUV formerly known as MKX gets a new name and a makeover for 2019. It's similarly sized, equipped and priced as the XT5 and, obviously, also hails from an American automaker.

2019 Acura RDX -- The RDX's size compares quite favorably to the XT5 and its complete redesign for 2019 yields a more stylish, dynamic and overall appealing SUV competitor. You also get more features for your money than in the XT5.

Used BMW X5 -- BMW wrote the book on midsize SUVs that are involving to drive. It costs considerably more than the XT5, so considering a used or certified pre-owned on is recommended.
