2020 Cadillac XT5 vs 2020 Acura MDX

2020 Cadillac XT5 vs 2020 Acura MDX

In the current American automotive market, the midsize crossover is king. So, how does this relate to the subset of luxury crossovers and SUVs? The Cadillac XT5 SUV, revamped for its 2020 model, is the middle child of the Cadillac crossover catalog, functioning as a compromise between the more compact XT4 and the larger XT6. With a flurry of updates over its 2019 model, the 2020 model offers a substantial change to the formula, but how does it compare of other luxury crossovers of its ilk?

Cadillac is a uniquely American brand, so we wanted to choose a competitor that’s quite distinct from its looks and focus. For that, we’ve chosen Acura, the luxury offshoot of Honda from Japan, and the 2020 model year of its MDX model. Let’s see how these luxury crossovers compare! It’s the 2020 Cadillac XT5 vs the 2020 Acura MDX!
