Which XTS is the Best?

Although the base XTS provides a ton of standard equipment for the money, for just a bit more, the Luxury raises the bar even further to get the most bang for your buck. Similarly equipped and sized luxury sedans, like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, would cost many thousands more. We would avoid the top XTS trim levels, as their sky-high price tags are questionable given the more modern, similarly priced CT6. Find a Cadillac XTS for sale

2019 Cadillac XTS vs the competition

2019 Cadillac CTS -- For some reason, Cadillac sells three big sedans. For most buyers, the CTS will be just the right spot in terms of size, equipment, price, performance and driving experience. We also think it looks considerably better than the XTS.

2019 Lincoln Continental -- Maybe the big front-drive car isn't endangered after all. The Continental was recently reintroduced, and though arguably more stylish than the XTS, its collection of talents is similar.

2019 Lexus ES -- The Lexus ES is another front-wheel-drive large luxury sedan that flaunts modern convention by putting comfort and space first on the priority list. Its available hybrid option makes it stand apart from the XTS.

Used Mercedes-Benz E-Class -- Although its heftier price tag means you'll probably end up in a used model (and a previous-generation version at that), the E-Class is nevertheless one of the finest luxury cars you can buy and should deliver the sort of elements desired in the XTS.
