The new-for-2019 Cadillac XT4 is the GM luxury brand’s latest entry in what has become a crowded market of luxury SUVs. Like its XT5 big brother, the XT4 sits between size classes, straddling the line between subcompact and compact. But that’s not the only thing that makes this big little SUV unique.

Under the hood, the XT4 has an all-new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which puts out 237 horsepower. It’s paired with a nine-speed automatic — which, we should note, was the subject of consumer complaints of early transmission problems.

The strengths of the small XT4 reside in its roomy interior. Compared with other SUVs of its size, this thing is big on passenger space, especially when it comes to legroom in the backseat.  While the BMW X1 has it beat on cargo room, you can still pack a lot more into the XT4 than you can into most other subcompacts. In terms of tech, you get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard on an improved multimedia system (with plenty of physical buttons!) and several places to charge your device.

Available in both front- and all-wheel drive, the XT4 rides smoothly on its relatively long wheelbase. Step up to the Sport trim and get the available Active Sport Suspension, which improves the comfort level with adaptive shock absorbers.
