How Does the 2018 Cadillac XT5 Compare to the 2018 Acura RDX?

If you are in the market for a luxury vehicle, you are looking to invest in something that offers you some serious benefits. Vehicles like the new Cadillac XT5 have been designed to deliver an unforgettable experience on the road, both in terms of their performance capabilities and their interior comfort.

However, we also know that our local Sioux Falls drivers want to feel confident about investing in a new vehicle -- you don't want to spend your money unless you know that the vehicle you invest in is well worth it.

In order to show the benefits one of our most popular vehicles, the Cadillac XT5, offers we decided to compare it to one of its main competitors: the Acura RDX.

2018 Cadillac XT5 vs. 2018 Acura RDX

So what are the main differences between these two automotive options?

  • Price: At first glance, the 2018 Cadillac XT5 looks to be the heftier investment due to its higher starting price. However, it is important to remember that price is not everything; it is more important to consider what you are getting for that price. With the 2018 Cadillac XT5 you are getting a tried-and-true brand that has a long history of delivering quality luxury vehicles to drivers. Can the same be said for Acura models?

  • Performance: The Cadillac XT5 immediately jumps out as the better vehicle when comparing their performance capabilities. The 2018 Cadillac offers better horsepower and torque (310 horsepower, 271 pound-feet of torque) while the Acura RDX can only manage 279 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque. When it comes to fuel efficiency, these vehicles are pretty evenly matched -- the XT5 can deliver up to 22 combined mpg while the RDX delivers 23 combined mpg. However, the 2018 Cadillac XT5 has a substantially larger fuel tank (19.4 gallons to the Acura RDX's 16.0 gallons) meaning you can go further with what is in your tank when you drive the Cadillac option.

  • Warranty: The 2018 Cadillac XT5 offers clear advantages in terms of its warranty. With it you can get roadside assistance for 72 months/70,000 miles and a corrosion warranty for 72 months/unlimited miles. The 2018 Acura RDX only offers 48 months, 50,000 miles and 60 months/unlimited miles for the same warranties.

  • Interior Space: When it comes to interior spaciousness and comfort the 2018 Cadillac XT5, again, offers clear advantages. It has more interior cargo volume (30.0 cubic feet) and maximum interior cargo volume (63.0 cubic feet) than the 2018 Acura RDX. It also offers you more front headroom (39.7 inches) and rear leg room (39.5 inches) than its competitor.

As you can see, the 2018 Cadillac XT5 offers you clear, distinct advantages over its competitor making it the better investment opportunity.
