LG's infotainment system, powered by the company's self-developed software, also offers two 12.6-inch screens on rear seats and can easily interoperate with mobile devices.
LG said it plans to supply its rear seat infotainment to General Motors (GM) Co.'s other vehicles. Cadillac is GM's luxury marquee.
