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.

My new/used Caddie

I love my Cadillac now. Don't know how much I'll love it when I have to pay out of pocket for a repair. I really love the Weatherization Package, Sun Roof, Moon roof, and All-Wheel Drive. The only complaint I have is my driver seat is very uncomfortable. The cushion is down to the rails on the seat and I have to add some kind of padding.

2020 XT4 350T Premium Luxury

Bought a 2020 xt4 premium luxury 350T and so far I am liking the way the car handles. I love the remote auto start and remote trunk release! I also love that I can start the car, open and lock the car from my Cadillac phone app! Would definitely recommend this sporty and luxury suv!

4.0

Road noise excessive

A few issues… car is loud on bumpy road. Would expect more from Cadillac. Options for dash customization are lacking. No time or temp in front of you. Seat belts should snug like Mercedes. Seats are comfortable and power is there. I know I’m being picky but you should expect no road noise.
