2018 Cadillac XT3 spied, but congratulations to the camouflage department with this one, since it’s hard to inform just what this compact crossover is upon first look, but spy photos can’t conceal the details to pour over.
This is more than most likely first test mule we’ve seen for the 2018 Cadillac XT3, the first brand new product Cadillac will introduce next year. Not just that, but it’s a compact crossover, which Cadillac requires quite severely in today’s crossover-crazy environment.
The most significant giveaway are the rear taillights, which appear to extend into the D-pillars similar to the Cadillac Escalade. If this holds true, it would mark an unique design shift from the 2017 Cadillac XT5, whose tail lights are more similar to those of the outbound Cadillac SRX.
Up front, it’s tough to identify any design qualities. Though, it doesn’t appear like Cadillac’s traditional vertical headlight treatment exists. And though we are hypothesizing, it’s quite possible that the 2018 XT3 will introduce Cadillac’s first significant style shift in some time. All indications point to the Escala program vehicle as future motivation for sedans and crossovers alike.
