2019 Cadillac XT4 vs. Its Competition

2019 Cadillac XT4
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2019 Cadillac XT4 straddles the line between small and mid-size crossovers, and its competitive set reflects that.

Its price is more in line with bigger crossovers such as the XC60, but its a couple inches shorter and lacks the same cargo space.

The XT4’s new turbo-4 might surpass our good feelings toward the base turbo-4 found in the BMW X3; they’re both good engines.

The GLA-Class is less expensive, but the Cadillac is better equipped.

The Acura RDX offers a good engine and transmission combo, but we like Cadillac’s infotainment system better.

The Audi Q3 is new this year, too.
