2020 Cadillac XT4 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Cadillac XT4?

New last year, the Cadillac XT4 is a five-seat, small luxury SUV that competes with the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Volvo XC40. All XT4s are powered by a 237-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive models are available, as is an adaptive suspension. 

What’s New on the 2020 Cadillac XT4?

Forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking and GM’s Safety Alert Seat are now standard. The drive mode selector gets an Off-Road setting, and a new gear selector includes piano black accents.  

What Features in the 2020 Cadillac XT4 Are Most Important?

Tech features include an 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot (data trial included), four USB ports and a Bose stereo.  Wireless device charging and navigation are available. Other available features include a hands-free liftgate, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a head-up display and a panoramic moonroof. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Cadillac XT4?

Despite its small footprint, the XT4’s interior is roomy and it benefits from easy-to-understand controls. However, brake-pedal feel isn’t the best, and the front seat cushions could be longer. The competition in this corner of the market is strong, so it’s worth checking them out before making a purchase.

Comfortable and practical SUV

This car is the perfect size for a small SUV. it's stylish, comfortable and has plenty of room and power. I like the features it has and the Infotainment system except i am having issues playing music from a USB thumb drive. Cadillac is helping me with this issue now.

Perfect Luxury Crossover Utility Vehicle

Happened upon the 2020 XT4 Sport by accident yesterday while looking to replace my 2015 Buick Regal AWD sedan. I already have a 2019 Acadia with the Denali package and love it for its sheer utility and long drive comfort. I wanted a second SUV but nimbler while not sacrificing creature comforts that I have become accustomed to in my later years. I was all set to purchase a GMC Terrain when the XT4 popped up. Gently used, only 19k miles and a Florida lease, Ute is in great shape with the premium white finish. 10 minute drive was all I needed to buy. Reviews were unanimously positive before I drove it and after purchase, additional reviews also confirm this beauty is technically cutting edge, styling unlike any other Cadillac SUV, and a stiff competition to small Audi and BMW's. Utilization of interior space is also quite an engineering feat. Couldn't be more pleased with my choice.

Excellent car for the money

This car meets my expectations and the buying process was easy, fast and I am extremely happy with the end result, really nice for the cost.
