Get the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t worry about a stiff ride, though the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can be an excellent bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide variety of options, to help you pick and choose those that are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs might be all of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with plenty of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to select from.
As has been the case for a time, you may get the 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a stronger V6, or you will get the miserly 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium with a little bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you choose one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to pick from over the way.
The 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium is as competent as they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content makes it supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re looking for something with a little more class and space when compared to a small sedan, the 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium might you should be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium is the bottom trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On another rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and an automobile alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a number of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Many of the features on the upper trim levels may be put into the lower trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL sound system coupled with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the trunk seat is straightforward to fold down to fit longer items. You can find enough cabin storage options to create most people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good although not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Cadillac Xts Premium includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be simple to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a vehicle seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough room so the front seat will not need to be scooted completely forward.
