New Cadillac XLR 2005
By John L Martin on
Vehicle
2005 Cadillac XLR 2dr Roadster (4.6L 8cyl 5A)
Review
The new 2005 Cadillac XLR competes easily with the Mercedes-Benz SL500 and has in my examination surppassed the it for ease of driver use. Cadillac's XLR technology integration is the best in its class. The edge in overall performance goes to the XLR. The interior luxury is on par with the SL500 with the XLR's looking more modern. Its general styling best in its class. Its comtemporary edge makes heads turn. Everyday driving is where the XLR excels with all features standard except for XM digital radio. In summary, the Cadillac XLR is sitting at the first position in luxury sports roadsters when you consider the price.
Favorite Features
The exterior / interior styling, ride and handling are superb. I love the heads-up display, Onstar, XM Radio, convertable top, keyless access, push button start, comfortable seatch, and supurb fit and finish.
Suggested Improvements
Add additional features as standard equipment, such as Bluetooth, remote start with full valet integration such as turning on heating/cooling, defroster, seats and wheel. Enhance the stereo system with MP3 and IPOD support. Add a color camera for front a rear viewing. Add front distance sensors.
