TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Cadillac XT5 is a solid luxury crossover, but so are its rivals. Shop carefully. The Lexus RX makes a style-conscious statement like never before, and it hasn’t lost its grip on good manners. The 2018 Lincoln MKX has an athletic feel and a classy interior, but we wish that its most advanced safety tech was available at a lower price point.
