2019 Cadillac XT4
Ratings & Reliability
The XT4 is Cadillac's new entry-level luxury SUV, and it delivers a classy cabin in a small package. The 237-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and nine-speed automatic transmission make for a responsive powertrain. Unfortunately, the engine sounds too buzzy when revved. We got 23 mpg overall with premium gasoline, which is unimpressive for the class. The ride is on the stiff side, but on par with the XT4’s peers. Its handling is quite nimble. The interior has comfortable seats with ritzy-looking leather, and chrome touches throughout. The infotainment system is easy to use, although the location of some knobs is unusual and the gear selector takes some getting used to. Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and blind spot warning are optional but they’re bundled into expensive packages, and not even available on the base trim.
