The 2019 Cadillac XT4 is the vehicle Cadillac wants, however is it too late?
The 2019 Cadillac XT4 compact crossover is crucial new vehicle from Cadillac in almost a decade.
Destined to problem the BMW X3, Audi Q5, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, the XT4 has not solely the requisite alphanumeric identify, but in addition a spritely 2.zero-liter, turbocharged engine that’s standard for the category. With 237 horsepower and 258 pound-ft of torque, the XT4 is not as highly effective as its German rivals, however the distinction ought to be negligible—they’re all inside spitting distance of one another.
The Cadillac guarantees 30 mpg on the freeway, together with metropolis and mixed ratings of 25 and 27 mpg. A standard 9-velocity automated aids within the miserly consumption, whereas the engine features a cylinder-deactivation system and begin-cease.
The exterior is said to Cadillac’s current merchandise, though it is truthful to say the corporate’s design language works higher on a small, excessive-driving vehicle just like the XT4. The physique measures 181.1 inches lengthy on a 109.four-inch wheelbase, a smidge lower than its German rivals, however much more than their sub-compact crossovers. The size makes an attempt to mix a manageable footprint with enough cabin area.
And that interior is definitely satisfactory. Cadillac claims to have extra second-row leg room within the XT4 than any of its rivals with 39.5 inches for again seat passengers. The entrance seats appear corresponding to the the XT4’s rivals, though our largest concern is cargo area: there’s not lots. With the rear seats up, the XT4 gives 22.5 cubic ft of cargo room. Fold the again seats down, and the XT4 has solely forty eight.9 cubic ft of area, far lower than the X3 or Q5, which each crest 60 cubic ft.
Cargo considerations apart, the XT4’s feature set seems aggressive. LED headlights and taillights are standard, as are 18-inch wheels (20s are optionally available). Within the cabin, there’s an eight.zero-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an revolutionary means of pairing a smartphone with the standard Bluetooth system utilizing close to-area communications, and a 15-watt wi-fi smartphone charger. Lively safety techniques can be found however quarantined within the non-compulsory Driver Help and Driver Consciousness packages, that are solely out there on the mid-grade Premium Luxurious and the range-topping Sport.
These two trims will doubtless value a great bit greater than the XT4’s $35,790 (together with vacation spot) beginning price, though Cadillac is not saying how rather more in the mean time. We anticipate to know extra nearer to fall, when the 2019 XT4 goes on sale.
