A key aspect to Cadillac’s resurgence is something most consumers overlook: lightweight construction; serving the dual purpose of procuring better fuel economy and reaping improved handling. Take the all-new 2017 XT5, for example. It’s nearly 300 pounds lighter than the SRX it replaces yet offers more than 3” of increased rear-seat legroom on a wheelbase that’s 2” longer. That packaging efficiency is achieved in a vehicle with an overall length, width and height fractionally smaller than that of the SRX. The weight drop comes with no compromise to body rigidity and crash performance and outperforms the XT5’s key German rivals.
