Our First Look At The Cadillac Vistiq Interior: Photos

No comments

The 2026 Cadillac Vistiq officially dropped cover in December 2023, offering a three-row luxury electric crossover larger than the Cadillac Lyriq but smaller than the Cadillac Escalade IQ. However, Cadillac has yet to publish photos or release any information about the interior. Luckily, Cadillac Society spied managed to photograph the Vistiq’s interior, showing off what’s behind the large luxury electric crossover’s closed doors. 

The first thing that stands out is the lack of buttons. Instead, a wide, horizontally-oriented infotainment screen is present and accounted for. The unite is likely exactly the same as the one used in the Lyriq. But while the Lyriq features a series of buttons beneath the infotainment screen for climate control, the Vistiq does not.

This decision likely reflects a move to imitate the buttonless interiors found in Tesla models while also reducing the number of microchips needed to build a vehicle. Of course, this phenomenon isn’t exclusive to Cadillac and Tesla, as automakers industrywide move away from physical buttons in favor of ubiquitous screens to control various vehicle features.

In the absence of buttons, the Cadillac Vistiq’s climate settings will be handled by the smaller HVAC control panel in the form of – you guessed it – another screen. This one juts out at an angle from the vehicle’s center console, and appears to be similar (if not identical) to the control panel found in both the Cadillac Escalade IQ and Cadillac Celestiq.

The infotainment system in the Cadillac Vistiq will feature Cadillac’s new Google-based infotainment system, which will not have Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Instead, this system provides things like a Google-maps-based navigation system integrated with various EV-specific features, such as looking up charging stations or getting route guidance that takes into account the vehicle’s driving range / state of charge and available charging stations along the way. This, in fact, was allegedly the primary reason that Cadillac decided not to offer CarPlay or Android Auto on its future EVs, as the third-party services don’t provide deep integration between the vehicle and its driving range. That said, drivers will still be able to pair their phones with the vehicle for things like making and receiving calls or playing media.

The Cadillac Vistiq will ride on a larger variant of the luxury marque’s BEV3 platform. At the time of this writing, pricing, powertrain details, or other specs have not yet been revealed.
