Note: This interior review was created when the 2009 Cadillac XLR was new.

Scorecard

Interior: 7.0

Auto writers report that the XLR's cabin falls short of its super luxury sports cars competitors' overall refinement. Still, it features an impressive list of convenience features.

  • "[T]he XLR's interior is somewhat reserved, lacking the polish found in Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz cars." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Although its cabin is quite luxurious and includes even more leather trim for '09, upon closer inspection, the XLR's interior materials (particularly the plastics) fall short relative to the competition." -- Edmunds

Seating

Like other roadsters, the Cadillac XLR only provides seating for two passengers. Though most critics remain silent on its level of comfort, some note that its cabin is hard to enter and exit.

  • "High sills demand some twisting to get inside." -- Cars.com

Interior Features

The '09 XLR is equipped with lots of modern convenience features. Standard features include Bluetooth connectivity and a Head-Up Display that projects digital readouts of driving information displayed on the dashboard onto the windshield to help driver's keep their eyes on the road. Also standard is a 6.5-inch LCD touch-screen color display, six-disc in-dash CD changer, nine-speaker Bose Sound System, and DVD navigation system.

Cargo

The XLR's retractable hard top swallows a significant amount of trunk room when lowered. According to Cadillac, it allots 11.6 cubic feet of space with the top up and 4.4 cubic-feet with it down.

  • "Luggage room is greatly reduced with the top down..." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The trunk boasts a respectable 11.6 cubic feet of space when the top is up; top down, however, that number drops to just 4.4 cubic feet." -- Edmunds
