Both of these vehicles handle sensationally, look stylish, and offer a great selection of additional features. If you’re not sure which model is right for you, check out the below comparison to see which one suits your needs and preferences.

Luxury & Convenience

Brands like Cadillac are often envied for their comfort on the road. If you are someone who values a smooth and pleasant ride, the XTS is the car for you. With more than 4 additional inches of legroom for the driver than the XJ Series, the XTS is an incredibly roomy vehicle. Even with the extended moonroof, the tallest among us will have extra headspace. However, it’s not just the driver who benefits from extra space.

The passenger and back seats in the XTS also have ample room, so leg cramps on a long trip will be a thing of the past. Throw in the optional massage seats, and you’ll never want your drives to end. If, for some reason, the spacious cabin isn’t enough room for you, the trunk in the XTS is almost 3 cubic feet larger than that of the XJ Series.

The interior’s focal point is an 8-inch infotainment screen installed with the Cadillac User Experience (or CUE) system. The CUE system was upgraded in 2018 to make it more intuitive and user-friendly.

Fuel Economy

The XTS is slightly more fuel-efficient than the XJ Series. The XTS gets 19 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway, while the XJ Series gets 18 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway.

Safety & Security

Cars like the XJ Series and the XTS are pretty evenly matched when it comes to safety. In addition to the standard front and side airbags, both vehicles come equipped with traction control, rearview cameras to assist when backing up, adjustable shoulder belts for the front seat, and anti-lock braking systems. You can add other safety features to the XTS upon request.


At nearly $30,000 less than the XJ Series, the XTS is by far the more affordable vehicle between the two. Even though the standard XJ Series might come equipped with more features, for a comfortable and sleek ride, you can’t get a better value than the XTS. And for any additional features you might want, you can always customize your XTS with one of the many offered trim styles to fit your needs. That way, you’ll get to decide on the features that are important to you, and won’t be paying for extra add-ons you will never use.

Even though the 2019 Jaguar XJ Series is a highly capable vehicle, its price, along with Cadillac’s continued concern for consumer comfort, tip the scale in favor of the 2019 Cadillac XTS.
