Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Former T8 plug-in hybrid is now called Recharge.Adaptive headlights, hands-free liftgate and rear USB-C ports added as standard.

Pros
Elegant interior design
Spacious second-row seating
Many standard safety tech features
Available as a plug-in hybrid

Cons
Not as fun to drive as most competitors
Too many controls tied to frustrating touchscreen interface
Ride is a little busier than you might expect from a luxury crossover

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.

The 2019 Volvo XC60 is the full picture: advanced powertrains, gorgeous interior, subtle exterior.

Pros
New, affordable front-wheel drive offering
Gorgeous interior
Competent powertrains
Standard advanced safety features
Logical and sharp touchscreen

Cons
Can get pricey quickly
Not especially fuel efficient without a plug
Requires premium fuel
It’s not in our driveway now

The 2019 XT4 is the vehicle Cadillac needs, but is it too late?

Pros
Will stand out from the crowd
30 mpg highway
Excellent rear leg room
Reasonable starting price

Cons
Active safety system availability limited
Where’s Super Cruise?
Small cargo hold
CUE is still CUE

The 2019 Cadillac XT4 makes for an affordable entry point into the world of compact luxury SUVs, offering a fuel-efficient engine and plenty of rear legroom. Also, you won't mistake its subdued design for anything but a Cadillac.

Pros
Affordable starting price
Standard support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
Plenty of rear legroom

Cons
Luxury features you'd expect to be standard are optional

By: 
edmunds.com

The XT4's edgy styling had us hoping that Cadillac's subcompact crossover—like its ATS, CTS, and CT6 sedans—had been engineered to impress driving enthusiasts. But during the day we spent hustling the XT4 along the picturesque rural roads circumscribing greater Seattle, it became clear that Cadillac has instead aimed for more traditional entry-luxury crossover stuff: quietness, sumptuousness, and user-focused technology.

Pros
Smart styling,
quiet engine,
decent interior

Cons
Unhurried shifting quality,
uncommunicative chassis.
