Car Reviews: Cadillac XT5 and Toyota C-HR

Posted By: Zack Spencer · 4/14/2017 8:21:00 AM

The Cadillac XT5 replaces the previous Cadillac SRX. This is a 5-passenger utility vehicle that might be the right size for many people who live in the city. The Cadillac XT5 is loaded with all kinds of technology from a rear-view mirror that turns into a video screen, a large centre screen with Android Auto, Apple Car Play, plus an LTE-4G connection with onStar. The backup camera has an overhead view and a warning system that vibrates in the driver's seat. The XT5 is power by a 3.6L V6 and because the XT5 is 132kgs lighter than the previous vehicle, it has better performance and better fuel efficiency.



The Toyota C-HR is a new compact utility, or crossover vehicle, that is smaller and less expensive than the RAV4. The all-new Toyota C-HR is only offered with front wheel drive (FWD) and is equipped with Toyota Safety Sense P as standard equipment. The Toyota C-HR is sold as an XLE or XLE with premium package. There is no Andoid Auto or Apple Car Play, satelite radio or backup camera in the head unit. There is no sunroof and the back seat feels small due to the small back windows. On the up side this C-HR drives well thanks to a 2.0L 4-cylinder with 144hp matched to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
