The XTS drives on magnetic ride control, which may seem rough if you are coming into this car from a Seville, but the responsive handling is the feature that could win over an Audi A6 driver. This is important because Cadillac says it benchmarked the A6 when developing the XTS. Our AWD Premium Collection model carried a sticker price of $57,260, including a list of options that were worth the price of admission. Base MSRP is $44,995, which puts it in line with cars like the A6 and Lexus GS.
Both of those cars trade mostly on technology, with performance as a supporting role.That is why it was necessary to cover so much tech here.The most noticeable part of driving an XTS is all of the new technology, but also how unobtrusive it is. For the younger buyer, tech is a higher priority than performance, and with that as the goal, the XTS excels.
