This is the ’19 Cadillac XT4, caught testing in Lapland, Finland. This new model will give Cadillac a chance to combat German compact luxury crossovers, such as the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class. It will be positioned beneath the newly unveiled Cadillac XT5.
Not much is known about the details of the upcoming Cadillac XT4, but it is certain that the compact luxury crossover will be based on the company’s modular C1XX platform. It will most likely have a familiar Cadillac grille and angular contour.
It is likely that the upcoming XT4 will borrow some technological features and safety suite from its bigger sibling, the XT5. Expect features, such as customizable ambient lighting, climate control, heated steering wheels and heated seats. The safety features that are likely to be present are airbags, stability control, a rearview camera, a blind spot monitor and lane keep assist. Of course, Cadillac’s latest infotainment system will be deployed in the car.
The upcoming ’19 Cadillac XT4 may be equipped with a 2.0L turbocharged engine that makes 272hp. It is also expected that the company will make use of advanced noise insulation technology to ensure the ride remains quiet. The engine should be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Not much is known about the cost of ’19 Cadillac XT4. However, the base price should be somewhere around $32,000.
