2018 Cadillac XTS V-Sport Review: Not That Kind Of V

– Cleveland, OH

Verdict 5.0 / 10

In the world of luxury cars, some customers just want more. If you offer them a bigger engine, they’ll buy that one, not because it’s better, but because it’s more. It’s that line of thinking that I think begot the Cadillac XTS V-Sport.

After all, the standard XTS is a traditional luxury car in its truest form. Neither flashy nor particularly fun-to-drive, its duty is one of comfortable conveyance, for which it doesn’t require copious amounts of power. Why then create the XTS V-Sport with 410 horsepower from a biturbocharged 3.6-liter V6 engine? Because it offers more power than the standard engine, and some people just have to have more.
