We’re not so sure about the XT5’s transition into a coupe-SUV, though. The frontal aspect remains distinctive with the large Caddy grille and headlights shaped like an elaborate number 7, while kdesignag has used a version of the grille with chrome detailing for a more premium look.
It’s the side view that has us less convinced, though. By covering the front half of the XT5 with your hand, you’re left with what looks like the rear of a notchback sedan. But while an abbreviated trunk style works on cars like the Mazda 3 Sedan and Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, here it just looks like two halves of two very different vehicles which have been glued together. The taillights extend deep into the fender, as they do on some Caddy sedans like the CT5.
