Beautiful, modern, spacious.

Very smooth ride as always expect nothing less from Cadillac. I live in Minnesota and this vehicle has always made it through any winter path. The leather is beautiful. Sunroof is a must. Also it's almost like the car can drive itself so be prepared. Never worry about fitting the whole squad in one car.

- Kayla P

A very reliable sports utility vehicle.

It is a very reliable car. I use it for both long and short distance drives. It looks sophisticated and it is a very comfortable care to drive. With the increasing price of gas, I wish it has better gas mileage but I guess I cannot have it all. It has a lot of space for luggage and groceries.

- Amber F

One of the best driving cars on the road. Cadillac.

Love the ride. Very comfortable. Power steering is nice. Braking is 100 percent. Seating is roomy. Power windows. Love the interior design. Lots of room for family and friends and. I love Cadillac. My whole family drives and own Cadillac. The interior lightening is awesome.
