Fuel economy isn't as good with the XTS as the smaller cars on this list, but it is also the only sedan using a V-6 for its get up and go. Generating 304 horsepower from a 3.6-liter V-6, the XTS is armed with a driver-shiftable, six-speed automatic transmission to turn the front wheels.
The largest car in Cadillac's stable, the XTS has a cabin that is positively cavernous. Consumer Reports rated noise and front-seat comfort as "excellent." Ride quality, rear-seat comfort and cargo space all received "very good."
Built for touring, this sedan will leave you feeling as refreshed after a six-hour jaunt as when you started. Dual-zone automatic climate control and a Bose audio system with iPod connectivity are part of the package.
