The 2020 Cadillac XT5 carves out a unique niche for itself among smaller compact luxury SUVs and larger mid-size luxury models. Compared to most of its compact rivals, the XT5 delivers more room for occupants and better cargo capacity. Pitted against many class rivals, the XT5 is noticeably less expensive and doesn’t require a diet of premium gasoline.

The XT5 Sport is meant to inject some excitement into this otherwise sensible, if not exactly exhilarating, Cadillac SUV. This new trim comes with a quicker steering ratio, 20-inch alloy wheels, retuned suspension settings, and the XT5’s optional 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. While the XT5 is available in front- and all-wheel-drive formats, the XT5 Sport comes with AWD as standard.

2021 Cadillac XT6 Arrives With New, Cheaper Luxury Trim

It’s now the entry-level offering.

When the 2021 Cadillac XT6 goes on sale this fall, the crossover’s second model year, it’ll arrive with a new trim called Luxury. It slots below the Premium Luxury and Sport trims Cadillac offered on the 2020 model. It’s cheaper than the other two, too, starting at $48,990 without the destination charge. The lower cost puts the XT6 in a price range that covers 20 percent of the midsize luxury SUV segment.

Cadillac sets the Luxury trim apart with bright exterior trim paired with aluminum interior trim. Power will come from a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 237 horsepower (177 kilowatts) that pairs with a nine-speed automatic gearbox. Front-wheel drive is standard with all-wheel-drive offered as an available option.

2020 Cadillac XT5 2.0L Makes a Case for the Optional V-6

From Car and Driver

The Cadillac XT5‘s back-of-the-pack status within the highly competitive compact luxury SUV segment is born of the difference between greatness and competence. Judged against its peers—Audi Q5, BMW X3, Lexus RX, Mercedes GLC, Porsche Macan, Volvo XC60—the XT5 fails to impress whether we’re talking performance or premium feel. While competent enough to be Cadillac’s best-selling vehicle, the XT5 is outsold more than two to one by the Lexus RX. The addition of a new turbo inline-four base engine highlights a range of mid-cycle updates for 2020 that aim to polish the XT5’s packaging while broadening its appeal. But opting for that less-powerful engine does little to change the XT5 experience.

The new turbocharged 2.0-liter four is shared with several other GM products. In the XT5, it makes 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Expressed in newton-meters, that torque figure is 350, which is why
