The 2019 Cadillac XT4 has been caught on test yet again. This time, however, the prototype is seen with a lot less camouflage than before.
In terms of placement, the XT4 will be positioned under the XT5 which is fairly new. Not much is known about the details of this upcoming model, but it is certain that the compact luxury crossover will be based on the Cadillac’s modular C1XX platform. It will most likely have a familiar Cadillac grille and angular contour.
It is likely that the vehicle will borrow some safety tech from its bigger sibling, the XT5. Expect features like customizable ambient lighting, climate control, heated steering wheel and seats. The safety features will include multiple airbags, stability control, rearview camera, blind spot monitor, and lane keep assist etc.
The XT4 is expected to feature a 2-litre turbocharged engine that makes 272bhp. It is also expected that the company will make use of advanced noise insulation technology to ensure the ride remains quiet. The engine should be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The XT4 will give Cadillac a chance to compete against German compact luxury crossovers like the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.
