How easy is it to drive? For such a large vehicle the Escalade is remarkably smooth to drive and is quite decent at cornering.
Who is this car best suited for? For those power-mums who need extra space to fit in the kid’s guitar and drum kit as well as the weekly shop this motor is perfect.
Favourite thing about the car: Any rapper worth his salt owns a Cadillac Escalade, the President of the United States also uses them to get around and comedian Kevin Hart just bought one for his ex wife, so being behind the wheel of this smooth monster automatically gives you a kudos that some of the other SUVs just won’t have.
Overall rating: 10/10
Performance: You feel safe and secure in an Escalade while still maintaining the enjoyment of driving. Although the vehicle is exceptionally large and spacious the driving experience thankfully doesn’t deteriorate. Cadillac have managed to somehow combine a high level of coolness with absolute functionality. Job well done, boys.
