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.
