Interior

What is it like on the inside?

Cadillac has raised its game with the Lyriq’s interior. The massive central command screen is familiar from the new Escalade but all the switches and detailing feel new and special here. A majority of the functions are controlled via the screen, but there is just enough switchgear to allow normal function without having to dig into irritating sub menus.

The heated, cooled and massaging front seats might lack a little in seat length adjustment but were comfortable and supportive over a 200-mile drive. The rear seats are wide and airy, with an abundance of leg and shoulder room. There is also good storage front and back from a blue leather-lined drawer under the centre stack. Boot storage is not huge at 28 cubic feet with the seats up. But they fold to more than double the load capacity.

There is no frunk on the Lyriq, that space being reserved for the 19.2kW onboard charger and the front motor on the AWD variants. It does reduce loading options, but the Lyriq is designed to be a luxury SUV, not a workhorse.
