Top Safety Pick 'Good,' frontal, side, and rear impact; 'good,' roof strength

Five stars overall; five stars frontal; five stars side impact

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

The 2014 Cadillac XTS might just be one of the safest luxury-car choices you could make--and it's certainly one of the best-proven, in terms of crash-test scores.

With its stout Epsilon structure, the XTS has earned not only Top Safety Pick status from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) but also a top five-star rating from the federal government (including an unusual five stars in both frontal and side impact). The IIHS hasn't tested the XTS in its new small overlap frontal test, however.

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.

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.

Also new for 2014 is an Automatic Parking Assist feature that will essentially steer the car into a parking space.


There are few luxury cars offering the level of security and advanced safety features you'll find in the 2014 Cadillac XTS.

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.
