Wander over the white line and the seat vibrates on the right side.
Edmunds' Inside Line



The 2013 Cadillac XTS is an all-new model; but it does build on the already proven Epsilon structure of the Buick LaCrosse sedan--a model that's been given the highest ratings from both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the federal government.

While we can't guarantee that the XTS will achieve the same ratings, it's likely. And if you opt for either the Driver Awareness Package or the all-new Driver Assist Package--which includes many GM firsts--you'll get one of the most extensive lists of safety features in any vehicle, at any price.

With the Driver Awareness Package, you get Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and a reflected LED display, along with a Safety Alert Seat that vibrates on one side or both to help point out potential dangers--like when you veer over the lane marking, for instance. And later this model year, with the availability of a Driver Assist Package, the XTS will offer Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Collision Preparation, and Front and Rear Automatic Brake features that can actually bring the car to a stop when moving at low speeds of 20 mph or less. At higher speeds, the feature will also reduce the severity of the impact by starting to brake.

Full-speed adaptive cruise control, as well as a Head-Up display are among other safety-oriented options, and a rearview camera system is standard on all but the base model. OnStar Directions and Connections features are included, too, as is Stolen Vehicle Assistance.

Conclusion

With a suite of new active-safety features and top crash-test ratings, there are few luxury cars offering this level of security.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
