2020 Cadillac XT5 vs. Its Competition

2020 Cadillac XT5
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

There are more mid-size luxury crossovers than there are luxury brands, which benefits buyers keen on supply-side economics.

The Germans offer the most compelling options with a balance of performance and technology, such as in the BMW X5, Audi Q5, and Mercedes-Benz GLC Class.

But those qualities can get costly.

Shoppers who like their luxury crossovers built for comfort should check out the Lincoln Nautilus or the always quiet, rarely exciting Lexus RX.

Don’t be fooled by that available third row in the RX 350L, however.

The Volvo XC60 is one of our favorites for its style inside and out, and its extensive standard features.
