2020 Cadillac CT4 review: Our expert's take

By Mike Hanley and Fred Meier

Competes with: BMW 3 Series, Audi A4, Mercedes-Benz C-Class, Lexus IS

Looks like: Cadillac’s flagship CT6 sedan scaled down

Powertrain: A 237-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder or 309-hp, turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine mated to either an eight- or 10-speed automatic transmission; rear- or all-wheel drive

Hits dealerships: March

The 2020 Cadillac CT4 is the new entry-level sedan from GM’s luxury brand, and it replaces the discontinued ATS in the Caddy lineup. In addition to the performance-oriented CT4-V, the CT4 will offer Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport trim levels. Cadillac also announced that its Super Cruise hands-free driving system, which is being expanded to more roads, will become available on the CT4 in 2020.

Cadillac says the CT4 is a bit bigger than the ATS, and its overall softer lines — particularly in the non-V models — and fastback profile echo Cadillac’s big CT6 sedan a little more than the new 2020 CT5.

The grille and exterior trim in bright finish distinguish the CT4 Luxury and Premium Luxury trim levels, while the Sport trim level offers the darkened trim and grille as well as some of the more aggressive bumper and trim design aspects of the V model (as well as its Brembo front brakes) in a lower-performance version.


The CT4 cabin features an 8-inch touchscreen powered by GM’s latest operating system. Standard features include keyless entry and push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel (heated optional), color dual-display driver information center, LED interior lighting and premium audio with active noise cancellation.

Under the Hood

The CT4’s base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder putting out 237 horsepower and 258 pounds-feet of torque. It works with an eight-speed automatic transmission. That’s down from 272 hp for the base 2.0-liter in the outgoing ATS. A turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder that also goes in the V model is available. It’s an option for the Premium Luxury trim level, but in a detuned version putting out 309 hp and 348 pounds-feet of torque versus 325 hp and 380 pounds-feet of torque in the CT4-V. This engine teams with a 10-speed automatic.

Rear-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is offered on all models. All models also offer selectable drive modes that, depending on equipment, can alter settings for shifting, suspension, steering and brake feel, AWD front and rear torque split, and exhaust note. The modes include Tour, Sport, Snow/Ice, Track and a personal mode; the V gets an additional performance V Mode.


Available active safety features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, reverse automatic braking, automatic high-beam headlights and GM’s Safety Alert Seat.

Beautiful Car

Dislike the vibration on the driver seat because it does not advise where danger exists just vibrates. Instrument panel difficult to distinguish options. Love the dark blue exterior color
