The Cadillac XTS is a full-size luxury sedan that shares a platform with the Buick LaCrosse and Chevrolet Impala. The model is mostly a carryover from the previous year, but it adds a few more power features, as well as power controls in the rear-seat armrest. The XTS is priced in the same neighborhood as the Cadillac CTS Sedan, but offers a roomier interior and a bigger trunk. Main competitors include the Acura RLX, Chrysler 300, Hyundai Equus, Lexus ES, and Lincoln MKS. The XTS is available with front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).
