    When looking for a new car in June, I liked the Cadillac XRS, but seriously considered waiting for the XT5, since the price seemed high for the older model. But there were other vehicles out there that appeared to offer more for the money – including more standard features. Although it wasn’t exactly apples – to – apples, I ended up with a Volvo XC90, and am happy with what I now have.
