CADILLAC XT5 REVIEW: Style Driven Houston

Fashion, Food, Art and Cars. This event was basically my blog in motion. I had the coolest opportunity to experience the new Cadillac XT5. The event started at a new Houston hotspot, VrSi, we headed to Silver Street Studios for light bites from Pass and Provisions, watched pedestal fashion shows from Suit Supply and Chloe Dao and Listened to DJ Athenz spin while experiencing the art that aligned the studios. This was all sprinkled with the all new Cadillac XT5.
The New XT5 has 20 inch standard wheels. It boasts new technology like Side Blind Zone Alerts and Pedestrian Collision Mitigation. You have the option of both Android Auto or Apple Car play. With Android phones the center console has NFC charging! With the IPhone that is possible with a special case. Basically all you have to do is set your phone down to start charging, no wires required. 
The major player in the Xt5 is its Active Start and Stop technology. In low fuel driving situations the Active Fuel Management System will power off 2 of the cars cylinders, optimizing the vehicles fuel efficiency. When the vehicle is stopped and Idle, the technology automatically turns off the engine to reduce fuel consumption. When you accelerate the car the engine will start again. While being chauffeured in the XT5 you could definitely tell the car would turn off at red lights but it was very responsive. 
Upon arrival at Silver Street we had a blast viewing the mini fashion shows featuring Chloe Dao and Suit supply.  Instead of a traditional fashion show there were pedestals in front of the cars for models to pose it. The space was large! We also filed this fun video below in the photobooth. So I made two of these but the second never sent!
Topped off with an after party at VrSi the night was amazing. DeAndre Jordan was also there. Random, I know. It was unrelated to the event, he was just in the building. Lots of dancing occurred and it was a fun way to unwind from the work week.
Thanks for a fun night Cadillac!
