Stepping inside the new 2020 Cadillac XT4 is an experience all on its own. Front lumbar massaging seats are available with heating and cooling features to keep you comfortable all year long. The front doors open wide to give you access to the spacious, airy cabin, and the driver’s seat is in an optimal position for enhanced driving visibility and line-of-sight. The XT4 is 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capable with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless music streaming, and USB/USB-C connections are provided for charging your mobile devices. If you don’t want cables cluttering up your cabin area, you can opt for the wireless charging pad.
Even though this is technically a compact SUV, there is still ample room for passengers are cargo. Front head room is 39.4 inches and leg room is 44.1 inches. The back row is where the space gets impressive. The head room is 38.3 inches and the leg room is best-in-class 39.5 inches. Even with all five seats being occupied, there is still 22.3 cubic feet of storage space for groceries, shopping bags, luggage, or sports gear. If you need more room for larger items, you can easily push down the 60/40 folding rear seat to grow the back area to 48.9 cubic feet.
Standard cargo area features include tie-downs, floor mats, and a USB charging-only port. Also available for the cargo section is a heavy-duty, non-skid cargo liner with a raised outer perimeter to trap dirt and spills. This surface protects the vehicle and minimizes the movement of items placed in the back.
Available packages include Cold Weather, Comfort and Technology Preferred, Driver Assist, Driver Awareness, Enhanced Visibility, and Comfort and Convenience. You can also add the Floor Liner package if you want all-weather floor mats.
Now to get into the nitty-gritty details, you should take a careful look at the three trim levels to decide which one is best for you.
The base Luxury model is anything but basic. With two 12-volt outlets in the front console and one located in the cargo area, you can hook up numerous devices. The Driver Information Center is displayed on a 4.2-inch monitor, and a 4G LTE Wifi hotspot is also available to keep you connected everywhere you go. Active noise cancellation keeps the cabin quiet, and you can listen to your favorite tunes through the 7-speaker stereo system. This version even offers dual-zone climate control and cruise control for optimized comfort. Safety features on this trim include an HD rearview camera, forward collision alert, rear park assist, and tire pressure monitoring. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather and boasts audio controls and paddle shifter. Handy storage compartments include mini umbrella holders, cupholders, map pockets, and an overhead sunglasses holder.
Next is the Sport trim level that includes athletic styling elements such as alloy pedals, ambient interior lighting, and assist handles located throughout the cabin. The rearview auto-dimming mirror senses bright lights from behind and automatically dims for visibility. Once the lights are out from behind you, the mirror will return to normal. All of the aforementioned safety features are including on this model as well as rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assist, and lane-departure warning.
The top-of-the-line Cadillac XT4 Premium Luxury is the cream of the crop. Its infotainment interface with navigation is displayed on an 8-inch touchscreen and can also be operated through the stylish rotary controller. Leather seating throughout with ambient lighting gives the cabin a sophisticated look and feel. This model also comes with all of the previously mentioned safety features along with blindspot monitoring and Head-Up Display. This system projects key information onto the windshield so that you never have to take your eyes off the road. Each trim is also able to be upgraded to a Bose Centerpoint surround sound audio system with 13 speakers for optimal entertainment luxury.
