Yesterday, Cadillac took the wraps off of the promised overhaul to the XTS sedan. The 2018 Cadillac XTS ditches some of its more fuddy-duddy looks for sharper lines and styling inspired by the Cadillac CT6.
With that said, and you knew it was coming, is the 2018 Cadillac XTS hot or not?
Overall, we say it’s a definite improvement over the 2017 XTS. The XTS has always looked a tad out of place in Cadillac’s lineup with sharp designs from the ATS, CTS and, most recently, the CT6. Now, the XTS falls in line with Cadillac’s current design motif—at least until Cadillac’s Escala-inspired design makes its way to production. That look could debut on the XT4 crossover, but the 2019 CT6 has been spied with Escala looks, too.
The jury is out on the rear end, though. We’ve said it looks a tad DTS-like, but some think it’s a nice improvement over the simple, vertical lights from the 2017 model. There’s really no denying it’s a sharper car altogether—especially from the front.
