We’ve never been the biggest fans of Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system, and rightfully so. It’s been clunky and slow from the start.
However, CUE 3 looks to address those issues with a new interface, faster performance and an overall smoother user experience. Roadshow took the time to go the system, and drivers should be more than pleased with the updates.
Foremost, the menus feature more premium, flat graphics. It’s easier to navigate and also easier to look at. Swipes of the touchscreen come with ease and tapping an icon isn’t met with long delays. The icons may also be rearranged by pressing and holding for a couple of seconds. Additionally, there’s a new dock that allows access to the most used features on the infotainment system.
Should you choose to forego CUE 3 altogether, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also are available and work as advertised. The new interface debuts with the 2017 Cadillac CTS and 2018 Cadillac XTS, and will make its way to all other Cadillac vehicles in the near future.
In all, it appears that Cadillac has listened to feedback, and it’s finally starting to take on the right cues for CUE. Have a look at the highlights in the video right below.
