2018 Porsche Panamera vs. 2018 Cadillac XT5

The 2018 Porsche Panamera and the 2018 Cadillac XT5 are certainly two of the most desirable car brands in the automobile industry. Given the set of features on offer, there’s not much to separate these models. However, the below comparison will tell you why Porsche is a popular choice among car buyers.

Design & Style

The XT5 can seat up to 5 people, with both rows of seat providing a decent amount of comfort and convenience. The passenger space is not quite great as you will find in other models. The seats are not that spacious and you won’t feel the cushiness as you expect from a luxury car. You can get better features with higher trim levels, but the price difference is too high.

On the other hand, the 2018 Porsche Panamera is quintessential of class and elegance that gives you a luxury feeling, the moment you jump inside. The cabin has been elegantly fabricated with great attention to detail. You will find plenty of top-class materials and soft-touch surfaces inside.

Technology & Safety

Speaking of technology, the 2018 Cadillac XT5 comes with a CUE infotainment system, which is quite easy to use. Other key features include Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless charging, USB ports, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The system has some drawbacks including a sliding volume bar which is positioned in a way that it can be accidentally adjusted.

The 2018 Porsche Panamera is a delight bundled with some great features. It comes with a state-of-the-art infotainment system including PCM interface, Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and navigation system. You will find it easy to use the controls, thanks to easily accessible buttons. Safety features include a rearview camera and parking sensors, while you also have an option to upgrade.


With smooth shifts and discreet exhaust, the XT5 comes with a V6 3.6-liter engine that moves the vehicle smoothly. Most of the commuters will be at ease with its performance, but if you are hungry for power and better ride quality, Porsche Panamera makes a good choice. There are plenty of engine options you have right from 330 HP turbocharged V6 engine to 550 HP V8 engine. The gas mileage is pretty good for a vehicle of its class.

The Bottom Line

Both the models are quite impressive in terms of modern exterior and chic interiors. However, with Panamera, you get multiple engine options and it gives a tough competition to any brand of its level. Overall, Porsche has a lot of features that are unbeatable by Cadillac XT5, and there is no reason why you shouldn’t consider Panamera.
