Which XT4 does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
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.
Like many of the vehicles in its segment, the five-seat XT4 comes standard with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Cadillac's version makes 237 horsepower. A nine-speed automatic and front-wheel drive are standard, while all-wheel drive is available. The front-wheel-drive XT4 betters most of its competitors with its 27 mpg combined rating, though many of its rivals come with standard all-wheel drive.
All XT4s are outfitted with Cadillac's newest 8-inch infotainment display that includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support. It also has fewer touch-sensitive controls than other recent Cadillacs, so it should be less frustrating to operate. These attributes, combined with a budget-conscious base trim, should make the XT4 a viable pick for a compact luxury SUV.
Trim levels & features
The 2019 Cadillac XT4 is available in three trim levels: Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport. Though the base Luxury boasts solid entertainment and phone integration features, it's light on some features. The Premium Luxury and the Sport come with upgrades that match their names, such as leather for the former and additional seat bolstering for the latter. Regardless of trim level, the XT4 employs a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (237 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque) and a nine-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional.
The base Luxury trim level doesn't quite come with all the features you might expect, but nonetheless it's decently equipped. Feature highlights include 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, power-adjustable front seats, simulated leather upholstery, keyless entry and ignition, remote start, and dual-zone climate control. Infotainment is handled by 8-inch touchscreen, Near Field Communications for easy Bluetooth connections, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, four USB outlets (including one Type-C), and a seven-speaker sound system with satellite radio.
Stepping up to the Premium Luxury nets you automatic wipers, auto-dimming mirrors, a power liftgate, a rear cargo shade, driver-seat memory settings, ambient interior lighting and added drive safety aids, including front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, and a seat that vibrates to alert the driver.
The Sport is similarly equipped but dons black trim-specific details, LED turn signals, and front cornering lamps. The interior has simulated leather upholstery, a different style of steering wheel and sport front seats.
Additional options are available for the Premium Luxury and the Sport. The Comfort and Convenience package adds upgraded front seats with a massaging function, leather upholstery (for the Sport) and hands-free operation of the power liftgate. The Technology package includes a digital gauge cluster, head-up display, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column, and wireless device charging.
For added safety, the Driver Awareness package includes low-speed frontal collision mitigation, a following distance indicator and lane keeping assist. After ordering this package, you can also opt for adaptive cruise control and both front and rear automatic braking from the Driver Assist package. The Enhanced Visibility package adds a suite of additional cameras, including one that displays in the rearview mirror, as well as an automatic parking feature.
When equipped with the optional 20-inch wheels, the Sport can also be outfitted with an adaptive suspension. Other available options include a sunroof; a built-in navigation system; a Cold Weather package, which adds a heated steering wheel and heated front and outboard rear seats; and a Trailering package, which brings additional cooling, a 2-inch receiver and a wiring connector.

Cadillac XT4 vs. the competition
2019 Cadillac XT4
2018 Lexus NX 300
Cadillac XT4 vs. Lexus NX 300
Though similar in cost and size, the Cadillac XT4 offers more rear legroom, a higher tow rating with its Trailering package, and more cargo space behind the rear seats. The XT4 also has standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, which the NX 300 lacks. The NX, however, is available as a hybrid for superior fuel economy.
Cadillac XT4 vs. Audi Q5
The Audi Q5 carries a higher starting price but accounts for the increase with more standard features, including all-wheel drive. Its interior relays a more modern appearance, especially when outfitted with the digital gauge cluster. The XT4 also has less cargo space — both behind the second row and with it folded — and a lower tow rating.
Cadillac XT4 vs. BMW X3
Like other German SUVs, the similarly sized BMW X3 costs more but offers a larger interior along with greater cargo volume and towing capability. Its performance model comes with a bigger and more powerful engine than what you can get in the Cadillac, too. Alas, the BMW only supports Apple CarPlay, and it's not standard.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Cadillac XT4?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
