The 2020 Cadillac XT4 is the smallest crossover SUV least expansive and least expensive in the luxury line. 2020 Cadillac XT4 Premium Luxury and Sport editions vary greatly in suspension equipment and settings. The 237-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo-4 gives power to the front wheels or all four, with 9-speed automatic transmission is standard and provides reliable quick change. Fuel economy is good, if not great, and the hybrid version is not offered. The 2020 XT4 Cadillac Sports complements its name with standard customizable silencers, although all versions of the Cadillac XT4 absorb bulges well and have fast and precise controls.
The electronic braking system standard across the line may require some acclimation to most drivers. Cadillac’s trick SuperCruise advanced customizable cruise control system is not available on the Cadillac XT4, though a simpler system is available to keep it away from the car in front. The XT4 reduces the daring profile with its standard LED headlamps that return to the fender and high taillights that work well. Inside, it is more common but comfortable for travelers and well equipped with good materials and build quality in the models we tested. Unfortunately, the cargo space is not huge.
2020 Cadillac XT4 Design
The Cadillac XT4 2020 minimizes the sharp details extracted from the boxy Escalade for good performance and blends it with a sleek interior. Forward, the standard headlamps on all trims project from the bumper and dive deep into the fenders. The large grille bears the traditional badge of the ridge and the cornice of the mark, and the hood is dazzled with its smoothness. The side profile of the crossover offers several surprises and no trendy sliding lines that can cross at certain times. In the rear, the short headlamps reinforce the XT4’s relatively small dimensions, though the high taillights are a nice sign from Cadillac’s glorious past.
2020 Cadillac XT4 Interior
The XT4 Luxury fits the line with adjustable synthetic leather seats, LED headlamps, a quartet of USB ports and an 8.0-inch touchscreen for entertainment that is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible. The Cadillac 2020 XT4 is in the best colors in warm orange and red hues, not in a black coal bottle or a slight grays that are likely to populate dealer lots. Inside, the interior of the XT4 has lighter shades and offers a few surprises. The trims range from wood to fake carbon fiber.
Inside, premium furniture and comfortable seats help the 2020 Cadillac XT4 achieve its luxury mission. Leather upholstery is optional, though even standard synthetics have a durable, reasonably compelling feel. The energy-adjustable front seats can be upgraded with additional lumbar adjustment, heating, and cooling. The leather-coated seats we have offered all-day comfort. The rear seat is enough for two adults, but three can be considered tight.
2020 Cadillac XT4 Engine
Inspect the Cadillac XT4 2020 for its rivals – and even vehicles of other brands under the umbrella of General Motors’ parent companies – and its 2.0-liter turbo-4 and 9-speed automatic transmission look commonplace. However, the XT4 has opened up a new engine for GM and hopefully, this model will stick. We rate the XT4 at 6 out of 10 because of its good engine and gearbox, with a point pleated for a high-tech braking system that can be awkward.
The Turbo-4 is rated at 237 horsepower as well as 258 pound-feet of torque, and after just a lag shift, offers good acceleration from stopping with limited intrusion into the cabin. The nine-speed automatic transmission makes quick changes and makes good use of numerous dials. Front-wheel-drive versions are safest in the city of 24 mpg, on 30 freeways, 26 combined, which is 1 to 2 mpg lower on the combined ladder than competitors such as the BMW X1 and Volvo XC40. Opt for all-wheel drive and these figures predictably slide to 22/29/24 mpg.
2020 Cadillac XT4 Safety
The 2020 Cadillac XT4 exceeds luxury car expectations. The availability of active safety technology is unfortunately not one of these ways. Even before it is crash-tested, we know that we will make the whole point on the XT4 because of the frustrating insistence that the manufacturer charges a hefty premium for the technological standard of collision avoidance on every rivalry and most new cars. NHTSA said the all-wheel-drive version of the XT4 had a total of five stars, including four starts in the frontal impact test. IIHS has given upper crossover ratings in two of the 2020 Cadillac XT4 crash tests but has not yet completed its full rating.
