This time we are going to talk about redesigned Cadillac’s flagship sedan, which is bringing some great and beautiful changes. It is 2016 Cadillac XTS.
Exterior and interior changes
The current model has been released back in 2013, so it is quite a new model. 2016 Cadillac XTS is luxurious sedan which will suffer slight redesign compared to its predecessor.
