If you’re looking for an electric SUV, the LYRIQ should be on your list. Range anxiety is a thing of the past thanks to its long legs, comfort, luxury, and abundance of electronics. Here are a few reasons why you should buy a Cadillac LYRIQ in Los Angeles.
Cadillac’s 2023 LYRIQ SUV is RWD or AWD. The rear-wheel-drive LYRIQ has a 340-horsepower electric motor, while the all-wheel-drive version has two 500-horsepower motors. Both variants have 102-kWh lithium-ion batteries and can be seen in person at Cadillac of Beverly Hills.
Single-motor LYRIQs are smooth. The SUV accelerates quickly and has enough power for city driving and interstate cruising. Zero to 60 mph takes 6 seconds. The LYRIQ can pass other cars with its linear throttle response. It delivers a luxury EV’s gut-punch acceleration. The dual-motor LYRIQ AWD should accelerate faster but reduce driving range.
Ride and Handling
Even with the optional 22-inch wheels with low-profile tires, the Cadillac LYRIQ in Los Angeles cruises over bumps and dips on the tarmac with amazing grace and comfort. The brakes provide strong stopping power, and switching between the friction and regenerative braking systems is easy. Additionally, there are different brake regeneration settings, from light coasting to complete one-pedal driving, which causes the car to slow down and stop when you pull your foot off the accelerator.
Despite this, LYRIQ isn’t the most sporty EV. It is quite simple to park in confined spaces and feels steady through corners with little body lean, but its heavy weight prevents corner carving. Although the steering is swift, there is little input.
