The 2018 XTS Cadillac came with both lots of similarities and significant changes from the 2017 model.

The exterior design was refreshed to make the XTS look even more elegant and more aggressive than before, with its unique LED daytime running lights continued on the front bumper.

Front parking sensors were integrated in the front bumper and, safety wise, the XTS was equipped with lots of technology.

At the back, the XTS had a dual exhaust with chrome tips, while the taillights had full LED lightning.

The XTS came with 3 trim levels: the base called simply “XTS”, “Luxury”, “Premium”, “Platinum” and “V-Sport Platinum”.

Inside the XTS’ cabin were softer materials than in the 2017 model and there was not a surface that wasn’t comfortable to touch. The leather upholstery quality was increased and the seats were modified to look and feel more modern.

Lots of room was available in the cabin, the passengers in the back having large legroom and headroom.

Cadillac didn’t disappoint this time either with the trunk space, having a capacity of 510 L.

The XTS was available with two engine options, both a 3.6-liter V6, one naturally aspirated and one twin turbocharged, with 304 hp, respectively, 410 hp. The turbocharged engine came with AWD only.
