The headlights took a second-from-bottom score and the user-friendliness of the LATCH child seat anchors was deemed acceptable.
2022 Cadillac XT5 vs the competition
2021 Lexus RX — Given the XT5’s exterior size and V6 engine, the big-selling midsize
Lexus RX should be considered an alternative. Its finely crafted cabin is particularly impressive. An RX
hybrid is also available.
2021 Lincoln Nautilus — The SUV formerly known as
MKX received a new name and a makeover two years ago. It’s sized, equipped and priced close to the XT5. And it’s another American marque.
2021 Acura RDX— The
RDX’s size compares quite favorably to the XT5. It’s stylish, dynamic, appealing and packs more features for the money than the XT5.
Used BMW X5 —
BMW wrote the book on midsize SUVs that are involving to drive. Because it costs considerably more than an XT5, we recommend a used or
certified pre-owned (CPO) example.
