Making a proper luxury vehicle is about looking at all the details, no matter how small they might be. To that end, the Cadillac CT5 sedan is equipped with a set of umbrella storage compartments.
The umbrella storage compartments in the Cadillac CT5 are located in the front door pockets, just below the padded arm rests. The compartments are shaped to allow owners to slide a rolled-up umbrella into the door pocket, with a rounded opening towards the front of the door for easy access. The umbrella storage compartment is market with a small umbrella symbol in the door panel, with an arrow pointing towards the rear of the door to indicate the direction in which to slide the umbrella.
Umbrella storage compartments are relatively rare in the auto industry. However, Cadillac has offered the feature on several different models beyond the Cadillac CT5, including the eighth-generation Cadillac DeVille, as well as the more recent Cadillac ATS and Cadillac CTS luxury sedans, the latter of which were indirectly replaced by the Cadillac CT5.
That said, some automakers, including Skoda and Rolls-Royce, not only offer dedicated umbrella storage compartments, but also the actual umbrellas themselves. Cadillac offers its own officially licensed golf umbrellas through the Cadillac Collection for $95. What’s more, Cadillac’s parent company, General Motors, offers a Cadillac umbrella via the official corporate store for $38, as well as a V-Series-branded umbrella for $28, although these latter two items are currently listed as being sold out.
As a reminder, the 2021 Cadillac CT5 starts at $37,990, including $995 destination charge, for the base-level Luxury trim level with RWD.
