2021 Cadillac XT5 Sport AWD: Enjoyable if not exceptional

This Caddy won't win any awards for its design, driving dynamics or ground-breaking technology, but that doesn't make it a bad vehicle. It's actually quite nice.

The 2021 Cadillac XT5 is a competent if not terribly compelling luxury SUV.

This vehicle's interior is quite nice, sensibly designed and constructed of premium materials.

Unfortunately, the XT5's exterior proportions are a bit frumpy.

Sport models roll on standard 20-inch wheels.

Sport models also come with a 3.6-liter V6 that delivers a potent 310 horsepower.

This engine is smooth and performs well, matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

There's a class-competitive amount of cargo space in this Caddy, 63 cubic feet of room with the backseat folded down.

Speaking of its rear seats, this vehicle's aft bench is surprisingly comfortable and spacious.

Like other modern GM vehicles, the XT5 features an excellent infotainment system, one that's both speedy and easy to use.
