2022 Cadillac XT5 vs. Its Competition

2022 Cadillac XT5
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Cadillac’s European rivals offer compelling choices.

The BMW X3 delivers balanced handling and lots of tech inside.

Look to the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class for its sublime style and rorty turbo engines.

The Audi Q5 seems to do just about everything right.

And we wouldn’t kick a Volvo XC60 out of our driveway, especially in T8 plug-in hybrid form.

From Detroit, the Lincoln Nautilus delivers more personality than the XT5.
