Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The XT5's infotainment system is a dream, being both intuitive and highly responsive. Embedded navigation is available for an extra cost, though Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both supported. Despite those generously sized rollers, this Cadillac's ride is firm and well controlled, but never harsh.
