2017 Cadillac XT5 Review

Mar 10, 2016 - 11:50 AM - by AutoGuide.com


'Whoa.' That one-word statement uttered while testing the new Cadillac XT5 just couldnít be uttered while driving the old and now retired SRX.

While the SRX was the American luxury brandís best-selling vehicle, it wasnít inspiring or interesting. It was just decently sized and well priced. The XT5, the all-new replacement for the SRX, is also well sized and priced, but thatís all it shares with the old car, and thatís a good thing.

With its clean, modern look and high-end materials and trim, youíll likely say 'whoa' when you step inside the new XT5. The dash is beautifully bare, lacking unnecessary creases and angles. Higher end Platinum models have tasteful art deco trim elements that demonstrate Cadillacís design expertise. Depending on the trim level, youíll find carbon fiber accents, two different types of aluminum and three types of genuine wood. And genuine is the key word here, with each panel in the car covered in cut and sewn materials, rather than molded surfaces.

Unlike some of the competition, the XT5ís infotainment screen is embedded in the dash, providing a flush look that contrasts the trend of displays that are often described as 'an iPad stuck on the dash.' Unfortunately, CUE is still a bit behind in terms of user design and relies a bit too much on touch controls for the volume, making things a bit sluggish to control.
In front of the driver are two options for different gauge clusters: a low-end one that seems plucked out of the brandís ATS sedan ('boo!'), and a high-end digital dash that looks like itís borrowed from the new CT6 flagship sedan ('whoa!'). A color head-up display is also available.

Feb 26, 2016 - 11:14 AM - by AutoGuide.com




The 2016 Geneva Motor Show will kick off next week and thereís a lot to be excited about.

Often home to debuts of some of the worldís craziest and most exotic supercars, the Geneva Motor Show is also one of the largest auto shows in the world. Unfortunately, we now live in an age where the Internet plays a bigger role in car unveilings than actual auto shows, so many automakers now take advantage by unveiling their debuts ahead of time.

But that doesnít mean there arenít some that are still kept under wraps. We may have already seen photos for many of the debuts heading to the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, but thereís nothing like checking them out in the flesh.

Top 10 Worst Automakers of 2016: Consumer Reports

Feb 24, 2016 - 11:22 AM - by AutoGuide.com


If you shouldnít judge a book by its cover, why should you judge an automaker by a single car?

Consumer Reports has tested thousands of vehicles in its history and with all that data, the publication has collected enough information to judge automakers by their entire lineup, ranking them based on their combined road test scores, predicted reliability, safety information and owner satisfaction.

As a result, Consumer Reports has released a list ranking automakers based on their consistency in delivering vehicles that serve consumers well, as well as automakers that consistently release vehicles that perform poorly in all aspects.

Find out the top 10 worst automakers of 2016 according to Consumer Reports here.

2016 Cadillac CT6 Review

Jan 26, 2016 - 12:04 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Thereís a new luxury flagship sedan on the scene and itís going for the throat of rival cars like the BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. No, itís not a Jaguar, Audi or something from Lexus, but a Cadillac, born, bred and built in the Motor City.

Given its pedigree, the all-new 2016 CT6 may sound like a hulking chunk of Detroit iron, but this is one notion that really puts the ass in assumption. Undercutting competing vehicles, this Caddyís platform is rife with advanced engineering.

The CT6 is similar in size to a 7 Series or an S-Class, with a wheelbase stretching 122.4 inches. Overall length is 204 inches with a width of 74 inches. The aforementioned BMW, for comparisonís sake, features a hub-to-hub span of just less than 121 inches. Its overall length is an even 200 inches and its width measures 74.9 inches.

Thanks to intelligent engineering, the CT6 weighs much less than its primary rivals. A base model tips the scales at about 3,700 pounds. In comparison, a 2015 BMW 740i Ė the lightest of the range Ė clocks in at more than 4,300, while an S550 is heftier by half a ton!
