2018 Cadillac XTS Interior and Exterior

First of all, the 2018 XTS will acquire a brand new front- and also rear-end styling treatments that bring its styling closer to that of the newer CTS and CT6 sedans. GM also made subtle changes to the car’s fenders, and additional LED headlights and taillights similar to those on other recent Cadillac models. Taken together, the changes have been subtle, but they do give the XTS a narrower appearance.

Inside, the interior styling has been revamped and lines similar to those of Cadillac’s other sedans. The largest change is most likely the availability of Cadillac’s revamped touchscreen “infotainment” system, called CUE (to get “Cadillac Consumer Experience”). The new system, which debuted on the 2017 Cadillac CTS, is much more flexible and responsive compared to the prior version. It’s also easier to learn and easier to work with while driving.
