Once famous for full-size cars, Cadillac has a pretty wide palette of models of different sizes in the offer. Introduced last year, this is the smallest crossover in the company’s offer at the moment. If competes mostly with subcompact luxury crossovers, though it is actually slightly bigger. Therefore, it delivers a slightly higher level of practicality and functionality, compared to its competitors. It is also one of the first models of this carmaker that came with a new design language. All in all, there aren’t too many changes to come for the next year.
The 2020 Cadillac XT4 will represent the second production year, so we count on the same design, with a possibility of additions in terms of standard equipment only. Also, it won’t be a surprise if we see a couple of new color options in the offer. Expect to see it on the market late in the year.
2020 Cadillac XT4 Redesign
Considering that the 2020 Cadillac XT4 will represent the second production year, we don’t expect to see any bigger changes. Base design characteristics will definitely remain the same. This crossover rides on a familiar E2 platform, which in practice means slightly bigger dimensions compared to main competitors. It actually walks on a fine line between subcompact and compact crossovers. Considering the price range, it actually competes with subcompact SUV. Given the bigger size, it has an advantage in terms of a more spacious interior and cargo area.
In terms of the styling, this is one of the first models in the company’s lineup to follow the brand’s newest design language, which has been presented with the Escala concept. Compared to some older crossovers, it is characterized by a more angular approach, especially on lighting groups and surrounding areas. For the next year, we don’t expect to see any important change in terms of styling. The best we can get is a couple of new color options.
2020 Cadillac XT4 Interior
The interior will also come without bigger changes. The 2020 Cadillac XT4 will continue with a familiar layout, which is characterized by a pretty attractive look. Of course, its quality is on a pretty high level. You can notice lots of hi-quality, soft-touch areas, while there is just a couple of areas where you can find hard plastics.
Besides great overall quality, the cabin is also very functional. As we already mentioned, this model is slightly bigger compared to most of its competitors, so you can count on a little bit more space on the inside. Both rows offer more than enough legroom. The first row is particularly comfortable, due to massive and very supportive seats. Another strong point is visibility. The driver’s seat is very high, while all windows are quite large, so you can count on a clear sight in all directions.
Another strong point is a spacious cargo area. You can count on 22.5 cubic feet behind rear seats, while the overall cargo capacity goes up to 49 cubic feet. The tailgate opens pretty wide, so bulky objects can easily fit as well.
2020 Cadillac XT4 Features
When it comes to standard equipment, the 2020 Cadillac XT4 will definitely be a strong player. Just like in the current model, things like an 8-inch touchscreen, HD Radio, satellite radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, four USB ports, Wi-Fi hotspot etc. When it comes to safety systems, you can get pretty much everything this carmaker has in the offer for the flagship model. Some of the highlights are things like front parking sensors, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, a safety alert seat, a rearview mirror camera, a surround-view parking camera, automatic parking assist, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams and many more.
2020 Cadillac XT4 Engine
This crossover offers a pretty amazing driving experience, mainly because of its great handling and powerful engine. It comes with a familiar 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine, which features a max output of 238 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Such amount of power guarantees strong acceleration and pretty effortless ride. The XT4 is also pretty quiet at highway speeds, while the overall ride quality is pretty good and smooth, due to a good working 9-speed automatic transmission.
Besides plenty of power, this engine also offers a pretty good fuel economy, which is better compared to most rivals. You can count on something like 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.
2020 Cadillac XT4 Release Date and Price
Considering that the 2020 Cadillac XT4 will represent the second production year and that there are no bigger changes planned, we expect its arrival sometime late in the year. Also, we don’t expect bigger changes in terms of price. The current model goes in a range between 35.000 and 42.000 dollars.
