Talking about the launches, the Cadillac CT5 is regarded as a fine blend of performance, comfort and aesthetic beauty. It is available in three variants, including Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport. Customers get an option to upgrade the sedan with an optional Platinum package that’s available on Sport and Premium Luxury models. 

The sports sedan also gets the flavour of modern technologies, including numerous connectivity features, capable of offering an excellent in-vehicle experience to the drivers. The infotainment system inside the cabin uses more intuitive ways for interaction, like Near Field Communication for phone pairing and a new rotary controller. 

Under the hood, the CT5 sedan gets a twin-scroll turbo 2.0-litre engine, mated to a 10-speed auto transmission with an electronic precision shift. The Premium Luxury and Sport models, on the other hand, are powered by the more powerful twin-turbo V6, 3.0-litre engine capable of churning out a max power of 340 PS and a peak torque of 542 Nm, coupled with a 10-speed auto transmission with an electronic precision shift, like the smaller displacement engine.

The CT5 comes with low-inertia turbochargers and an in-built liquid-to-air intercooling system for sustaining the power across the majority of the rpm band and produce power without lag.

Next up, the Cadillac XT6, which completes the brand’s SUV line-up in this part of the world, joins members like the XT4, new XT5 and the Escalade. It is a three-row crossover that’s designed to offer a comfortable and relaxing experience to the passengers with a fully-connected luxurious cabin and comprehensive set of safety features and technologies. 

Available in two models, Premium Luxury and Sport, the XT6 is powered by a V6, 3.6-litre engine with adaptable and refined suspension and smart tow trailing system, mated to a 9-speed auto transmission. While the Premium Luxury model comes with an all-wheel-drive system, the Sport variant has been blessed with Twin-clutch Sport Control AWD.

The updated Cadillac XT5 comes with revised styling, enhanced technologies and a new turbocharged engine, giving customers more options to match their driving needs and luxury desires. Based on driving dynamics and design, Cadillac offers the new XT5 in three trims, Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport. 

The entry-level variant gets a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that generates a max power of 240 PS and a peak torque of 350 Nm, mated to a 9-speed auto transmission system. The 2.0-litre equipped XT5 comes with an electric motor instead of a vacuum-based booster and an electrically assisted power braking system.

Inside, the XT5 gets an 8-inch infotainment system with touchscreen, a revised gauge cluster, a rotary controller and a switch to disable auto start/stop function. As part of the safety suite, it gets a forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, automatic front braking with pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, auto high-beam headlights and safety alert driver seat.
