intuitive infotainment setup,
surprisingly spacious cabin.

Cons
Not as fuel efficient as key rivals,
lacks standard safety tech,
just plain slow.

Small cargo area
Unimpressive fuel economy

Cadillac has made only a few minor changes to the XT4 for 2021, starting with the base Luxury trim, which receives a new standard power rear liftgate and the option of leather upholstery. An optional Driver Awareness package that includes automatic high-beam headlamps and lane-keeping assist has also been added to the Luxury trim.

Pros
Stylish exterior, handsome interior design, spacious cabin.

Down-market interior materials, rough ride, loud engine note.
