Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Cadillac makes several small changes to the 2020 XT4, which mainly include new standard and optional features as well as small design tweaks. All models now have automated emergency braking, forward-collision warning, front pedestrian detection, and a safety seat alert. The entire lineup receives a revised shifter, enhanced infotainment rotary controller, and new metallic paint colors (Silver Dust and Garnet). Likewise, the top two trims add a standard hands-free liftgate and rear pedestrian detection.

Pros
Expressive design, ample cargo and passenger space, quiet and refined engine.

Cons
Subpar cabin quality, ride should be smoother, not the best deal.

The XC60 receives several new standard features for 2021, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, LED headlights, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and front parking sensors, as well as a new 19-inch wheel design and power-folding exterior mirrors with an auto-dimming function. Volvo has eliminated AM radio on the XC60, but fans of the format will still be able to listen via a provided app, TuneIn, through the infotainment system.

Pros
Handsomely designed inside and out,
good fuel economy from all three powertrains,
plenty of standard safety tech.

Cons
Infotainment system response lags at startup,
hybrid powertrain needs refinement,
dinky interior storage bins.
