Make the Most of Your Lombard, IL Drive with the Cadillac XT5

Here at Heritage Cadillac, we're all about helping our customers find the perfect SUV fit. Finding an SUV is easy with so many dealerships around Chicago, but if you're looking for the one that checks all the boxes on your wish list, Heritage Cadillac is the answer. We pride ourselves on the level of commitment we provide our customers with, and we're happy to work with those right here in town or from Tinley Park when it comes to finding the right solutions.

Of course, picking out the right SUV can come with its set of challenges. With numerous luxury SUV options around Chicago, you might be unsure which one is right for you. While there are options like the Lexus RX, Audi Q5, and BMW X3, we're confident that the Cadillac XT5 is the right choice above all others. Explore the comparisons down below and see what the XT5 can do!

Cadillac XT5 vs. Lexus RX

  • Both models come standard with front-wheel drive, but that doesn't stop the Cadillac XT5 from being the more efficient option. The XT5 offers an EPA-estimated 22/29 mpg city/highway, compared to the RX 350s 20/27 mpg city/highway.
  • Convenience and comfort should be expected for New Lenox drivers when looking at luxury SUV options. However, the XT5 ensures that you get these features from the get-go, with a standard remote engine start, heated seats, and a power liftgate. The Lexus RX doesn't offer any of these features on its base model, not even if you pay for the optional features.

Cadillac XT5 vs. Audi Q5

  • While the Audi Q5 is standard with AWD, it doesn't quite have the same power that the Cadillac XT5 can produce. The XT5 delivers 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque from its turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, compared to 261 horsepower and 273 pound-feet from the Audi Q5.
  • Need to pack the interior full? The Cadillac XT5 is the solution for you! It offers a maximum of 63 cubic feet of storage space - the Audi Q5 limits you to 54 cubic feet, making you leave a bit more behind on your next trip.
  • Cadillac XT5 vs. BMW X3

    • When it comes to your safety, the Cadillac XT5 delivers confidence for Naperville drivers. The XT5 comes standard with a Teen Driver System, Driver Attention Monitor, and a Rear Seat Reminder - all features missing from the BMW X3 base model.
    • Wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration are a staple of the Cadillac XT5 lineup, allowing you to seamlessly connect your phone on the go. While the BMW X3 offers both connectivity features, they won't be wireless - be prepared to connect via a cable for the foreseeable future.

Safety

FRONT PEDESTRIAN BRAKING

Front Pedestrian Braking can help you avoid or reduce the severity of a front-end collision with a pedestrian it detects directly ahead of you. It provides pedestrian alerts and can even automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver's hard braking. The system works at speeds less than 50 mph during the daytime. It has limited nighttime and low-visibility performance.

FORWARD COLLISION ALERT

Forward Collision Alert can warn you if it detects a potential front-end collision with a vehicle you're following, so you can quickly take action. It can also provide a tailgating alert if you're following a vehicle much too closely.

LANE KEEP ASSIST WITH LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning uses a brief, gentle steering-wheel turn to alert you when you may be unintentionally drifting out of detected lane lines, so you can steer to stay safely in your lane. If needed, you may receive additional Lane Departure Warning alerts. System alerts do not occur if you're using your turn signal or if the system detects you may be intentionally leaving your lane.
