The 2016 Cadillac XT5 has been spied undergoing testing in the United States.

The 2016 Cadillac XT5 has been spied undergoing testing in the United States.

Set to replace the aging SRX, the XT5 eschews the angular styling of its predecessor and adopts a more cohesive design that looks pretty promising.  

While the camouflage hides a lot of details, we can see the crossover will have a prominent grille that is flanked by vertical headlights.  Moving further back, there's door-mounted mirrors, an upward sweeping beltline and a gently sloping roofline.  The rear end also has a rakish tailgate and a dual exhaust system.

The interior photo doesn't reveal much but we can still see leather seats, chrome door handles and an under floor storage compartment.

Cadillac has been tight-lipped about specifications but the model is expected to ride on the new C1XX / Chi platform and feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 272 bhp (203 kW).  There could also be a 3.6-liter V6 that develops 321 bhp (239 kW).

The Cadillac XT5 could be unveiled at the New York Auto Show, so stay tuned for additional information.
