What's New

Only minimal changes are in store for the 2017 Cadillac XTS sedan. The gauge cluster is revised, there's a new 20-inch wheel design on XTS V-Sport models, and new exterior color choices. A Teen Driver feature enables elders to set parameters and monitor how the young 'uns drove.

I actually lease my car so it is more affordable. It was also noted as one of the safest cars on the rode.

They took away the hidden compartment on the dash. Mine worked great in the 2015 model. I love the ride and the way it looks. I get compliments on my car all the time.

Getting in and out of vehicle is tiresome. Love the way it handles especially into curves. The seats often refuse to adjust but with some effort it fixes itself.
