2024 Cadillac XT4

With its sleek exterior contours, the 2024 Cadillac XT4 captivates onlookers, but its interior disappoints given its price. Our test car features the Crystal White Tricoat color scheme, a $1,225 option, and 20-inch dynamic 7-spoke alloy wheels, costing $1,100.

While maintaining a conventional profile, large taillights at the rear establish a visual link with other Cadillac models. Despite lacking excitement inside, it includes the $1,650 Tech Package, offering features like a head-up display and wireless phone charging.

The interior’s lackluster design falls short of Cadillac’s luxury standards, despite leather and a jet black and oxford stone interior. Priced over $50,000, the absence of upscale aesthetics and tactile controls is evident.

Though not disappointing outright, it exudes a certain timidity. The addition of a broad touchscreen provides some relief, yet it’s not enough. Also included is a $1,550 sunroof, along with other options that significantly raise the price.

PERFORMANCE

Underneath the hood of the XT4 lies a turbo-4 engine from Cadillac, matched with a suspension tailored for comfort, not sportiness.

With its 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine, the XT4 generates 235 horsepower, showcasing commendable responsiveness, aided by a 9-speed automatic transmission for smooth shifts.

Although Cadillac aims to portray the XT4 as sporty, it falls short of embodying that spirit, particularly with the optional 20-inch wheels which lean towards stiffness. Moreover, the XT4’s brakes convey an artificial feel, detracting from its performance allure.

VERDICT

Priced at $43,995, the 2024 Cadillac XT4 AWD Premium Luxury we had for a week had additional options that brought the total cost up to $55,115.

Competition

Explore a range of compact luxury SUVs, each with its own distinct personality. Step into the BMW X4 to discover a lavish interior matched with powerful engine options, while the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class boasts a sleek and distinctive design.

Audi’s Q3 offers understated elegance and dependable performance, whereas the Volvo XC40 stands out for its powerful engines and the thrill of its electric model. Opt for the Lexus UX if you admire angular design and prioritize eco-friendliness, thanks to its hybrid powertrain.
