Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2023 Cadillac XT6 has a score of 86, implying a 0.034% chance of driver death (3.1% chance of injury). If equipped with optional advanced driver safety features, the chance of death falls to 0.029%, and the chance of injury falls to 2.6%.

We estimate that the 2023 Cadillac XT6 has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0342% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.9039%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0342% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.9039% chance of being injured.

Active safety features on the 2023 Cadillac XT6 can protect loved ones by reducing accident severity and preventing accidents. Active safety systems that are standard on the Cadillac XT6 include: Super Cruise with Forward Collision Alert (FCA), Front Pedestrian Braking, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Side Blind Zone System.

Some advanced safety features --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Standard side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you. Standard Cornering Headlights / Leveling Head Lamps better illuminate the road ahead --- the lights point towards the direction that the vehicle is heading.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
