We're taking two of the oldest luxury rivals in American automotive history and seeing which makes the best mid-size luxury crossover. Our Showdown is on the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus vs the 2019 Cadillac XT5.
Our episode of TestDrive Showdown covers the differences and similarities between these two mid-size two-row luxury crossovers. If you want to know absolutely everything there is to know about the 2019 Lincoln Nautilus Reserve AWD you can watch our episode of TestDrive Spotlight, and everything you need to know about the 2019 Cadillac XT5 Platinum AWD.
Our Showdown focuses on what buyers in this $70,000 segment want out of a crossover, including features, luxuries, technology, styling, and ultimate luxury. We also go over important specifications between both cars including exterior and interior dimensions and cargo and passenger capacities.
We take each crossover on a road test to talk about how each handles, drives, and performs on the road, and what we like about each vehicle in terms of the interior design and features, and exterior look and tech. We conduct real-world fuel economy testing of both vehicles to see which is the most fuel efficient, and wrap up our Showdown with our final thought on what each vehicle has to offer, and which we would take if we were in the market for the Lincoln Nautilus or Cadillac XT5.
