A great car in every way

Reviewed by Luxury car of its time
March 02, 2016

We decided to go with a lease this time, that was the best choice. We like everything about it; cool and heated seats front and back, smooth, quiet ride. The seats are so comfortable, we love the back seat leg room. There's nothing to dislike about the beautiful piece of machinery. This vehicle is a great investment for any age!

Refined; with all the bells & whistles

Very satisfying to drive and show off! A real joy! Roomy and comfy. Infotainment system takes a while to learn, but then it's pretty intuitive. Perhaps not as good as Ford's. Overkill: motorized face plate covering phone locker activated by hand proximity. Buttons on steering wheel sometimes duplicate other dashboard controls. Nav touch screen is a marvel. Best of all: 360 deg. cameras and proximity sensors are safety improvements for maneuvering, backing up and parking with even a view of the car & surroundings from above.

Beautiful Machine

Reviewed by Shore Drive Caddy Driver

Test drive revealed new suspension system for 2016, making it the smoothest drive ever felt. Safety features are excellent, as you can now see exactly how you are parked from the bird's eye camera. Lane changing warning signals are so welcomed. They present the safest experience on today;s busy roads. I wish the interior wood trim were a little brighter, since the dark tone blends in too much with the darker leather seats and dash. In metallic graphite, a very classy exterior look is obtained. We're so happy our dealer informed us of the special incentives to trade in our 2013 for a 2016. Just having the additional safety features is truly a great advantage.

Best new car Ive owned so far !

This 2016 Cadillac XTS Platinum has all the options and features that I want and even more that I really enjoy! The best luxury car I have ever owned ! I especially love the radar controlled Adaptive Cruise Control which automatically matches the speed of the vehicle in front of you and maintains the proper gap or distance from the vehicle in front of you. Great safety feature !

American Luxury Sedan

Reviewed by American Standards Enthusiast
September 10, 2015

Having driven in the past fifteen years 7 Lincolns (2 LS, 1 Town Car and 4 MKS Eco-Boost) I was of course interested to know whether Cadillac is just the "competition" or whether it really provides substantive foundation to the popular adage "The Cadillac Package". Recently I bought a 2016 Cadillac XTS Premium package loaded. I didn't opt for the Platinum because I would have had to get a moon roof which I did not want. I also wanted the Kona brown interior which for some reason isn't available on the pricier models. I went for FWD primarily for the savings (the AWD comes with the bigger engine) but also because I don't drive in snow. Bottom line: the Caddy is great! In a week of fairly steady driving I have adjusted to the standard, less powerful engine (the MKS Eco-Boost really did move, no question). The standard Caddy engine is however perfectly satisfactory for a large sedan and perhaps even more stately with its moderate inertia. Frankly I always felt like a bit of a hoodlum outrunning those petulant BMWs coming from behind on the freeway filter lanes. The Caddy is very quiet (as was the MKS); strong, balanced stance; good traction; great sound system; everything works as it is supposed to; no rattles; uses regular fuel; locks automatically when you walk away with the key in your pocket; the exterior lights announce the car; the door handles feel terrific; the seats with the 32-way adjustments are perfectly accommodating; the CUE system is more convenient than the Sync system by Ford (though admittedly it took some time - a week - to familiarize myself, but that's true of any new computer); it doesn't suffer the blight of the MKS being a souped-up Taurus; the outside mirrors can fold electronically (will never know why MKS never did that!); and - here's the real big deal for me - Head Up Display (HUD) which thankfully eliminates having to search for one's speed (and other info such as current direction and radio station, even RPMs). Of course in keeping with the further adage that "You get what you pay for", even though the MKS was great value, if I am to be blunt, the Caddy - though more costly - is worth it. There are almost imperceptible - though very palpable - elements of higher quality in the Caddy. As far as I'm concerned, I'm sticking with Cadillac in the future.

I would recommend this vehicle to a friend: YES
