2019 Cadillac XT4 Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide

With the introduction of 2019 Cadillac XT4, the void for a triple-row compact SUV from Cadillac seems to be occupied. With an overall length extending to about 181 inches, the Cadillac XT4 is a coupe that qualifies for both compact and subcompact segments. The coupe is derived from the FWD, double-row model launched in 2017, the mighty Cadillac XT5.

The XT4 coupe features a capable 2.0L I4 engine. It is capable of generating 237 hp of power in addition to 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The power is available at a maximum of 5000 rpm, while the torque is available at 1500 rpm max. The proficient 2.0L I4 engine is coupled with a responsive 9-speed automatic transmission mode. This allows for an effectual and effortless gear-shifting.

2019 Cadillac XT4 Engine

8.0/10

With an output of 237 horsepower, the XT4's turbo 2.0-liter engine matches most competitors in terms of oomph. The optional adaptive suspension looks to provide more engaging handling, but it's only available on the Sport trim level and with the 20-inch wheels.- edmunds

Lincoln MKC comes second, for now, in terms of acceleration in the competition. The ride features a 7.1-second, 0-60 MPH acceleration time and 15.3-second, quarter-mile time. Buick Envision finished last with 8.5 seconds for accelerating to 60 MPH from nothing. Furthermore, it takes 16.3 seconds for covering a quarter mile.

Ride and Handling

2019 Cadillac XT4 hasn't been tested for handling and steering yet. Therefore, the best that we can do is deduce. As the ride is based on the mighty XT5, it might have a few or almost most driving perks of its older sibling. What's new with the drive is an electro-hydraulic brake assist feature. It is aimed at cutting fuel consumption while delivering the best driving experience.

Moreover, 2019 Cadillac XT4 features CDC (Continuous Damping Control). This feature modifies the damper's valve constantly on the basis of a number of key driving parameters. It is, however, optional with the ride. Furthermore, CDC is lighter and less expensive than that of the air suspension or the famous MagneRide. To smoothen the driving experience, XT4 features a front strut in addition to a five-link rear suspension.

Braking

Brake sizes for the 2019 Cadillac XT4 aren't yet disclosed by the manufacturer. Volvo XC 40 has the biggest front brake in the competition, 13.6 inches in length. On the flip side, it also has the smallest rear brake in the league, measuring 11.9 inches.

The shoulder room is best among the class rivals, while the headroom is second only to Envision's 40 inches. However, the legroom is least amongst the competition.

Legroom, nonetheless, is the maximum available in the competition. Volvo XC 40 offers the least rear legroom of 36.1 inches.

Infotainment System

Cadillac's CUE infotainment system is kind of more infamous than being famous only. 2019 Cadillac XT4 will also, unfortunately for some, feature the proprietary infotainment system albeit with some twist(s). This version will feature a rotary controller as an alternative means of controlling the infotainment features. It means that instead of using the irritating touch controls, one can use the controller to access features.

2019 Cadillac XT4 Infotainment

The infotainment system will feature an 8-inch touch display. Fascinatingly, the infotainment system is backed by NFC (Near-Field Communication) technology, making an easier connection with devices. Other prominent feats of the XT4 infotainment system includes 4 standard USB ports and wireless charging. Furthermore, the infotainment system will be available with a built-in support for 4G LTE networks.

Interior Features

The look on the inside of 2019 Cadillac XT4 depends greatly on the trim level as well the interior combo one decides to go for. Nonetheless, there is no scarcity of standard interior features, including:

  • Ambient white lighting
  • Spacious, fully functional cabin
  • Massaging seats
  • Segment-leading rear legroom

Cargo Capacity

Cadillac XT4 comes with 22.5 cubic feet of the 2nd row up cargo space. This is more than that of the 20.7 cubic feet offered by the Volvo XC 40. However, it is less than that of the 25.2 and 26.9 cubic feet flaunted by the Lincoln MKC and Buick Envision, respectively. Moreover, the total cargo space available when 2nd row is folded in XT4 is 48.9 cubic feet. This is the least offering among its class rivals. Buick Envision offers the maximum for this section, 57.3 cubic feet.
