As documentation link https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/microsoft.sharepoint.webpartpages.xsltlistviewwebpart?view=sharepoint-server

I added the Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages reference for XsltViwerWebPart in SharePoint 2016 solution.

However, I get a reference error for XsltViwerWebPart

What's the correct namespace?

How can I use XsltViewerWebPart in SP 2016?

You need add Microsoft.SharePoint.dll into References in visual studio solution.

And then add the code below to .cs file.

using Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages;

If you want to use XsltListViewWebPart, the following example for your reference.
