The 2022 Cadillac XT4 isn’t just a sensational-looking subcompact crossover SUV that drives and handles every bit as well as it looks, this is also a luxury model that can actually represent excellent value for money. You can, of course, go up the trim levels and raid the options list to order an extremely opulent version of the XT4, but this is one of those rare cases where the entry model comes very generously equipped and is, therefore, a perfectly suitable model for a lot of prospective buyers who may not have thought their budget could run to a new Cadillac.
It could be said that the 2022 Cadillac XT4 family of trim levels is as compact as the vehicle itself with just three versions of the crossover to choose from, but the three different models really do cover a good range of specifications and pricing. The lineup for 2022 starts off with the entry-level Luxury model, the second model is called the Premium Luxury, and the trio is completed with the XT4 Sport.
This is quite a different way of doing things as the Premium Luxury and the Sport have identical starting MSRPs, but while the Premium Luxury concentrates on luxury features, the Sport model inevitably goes for a sportier slant on a luxury subcompact SUV. There’s a reasonably significant gap between the MSRP of the entry-level Luxury and the two co-headline XT4 variants, but a closer investigation shows what great value the XT4 Luxury represents.
It probably won’t come as too much of a surprise that Cadillac sticks with one engine across the XT4 lineup, but buyers do still have a choice of drivetrain. The entry-level XT4 Luxury is standard front-wheel-drive with the option of all-wheel-drive, but the Premium Luxury and Sport models are exclusively AWD. The engine under the hood of all XT4s is a thoroughly contemporary 2.0-litre turbo-four that puts out a very lively 237 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, which sends that considerable power to the front or all four wheels through an excellent nine-speed automatic transmission. The 0-60mph time of the XT4 is 7.35 seconds, but the way the Cadillac is set up makes it a lively and engaging drive while still remaining comfortable for the driver and passengers.
The Premium Luxury and Sport versions of the 2022 Cadillac XT4 can be specified to an extremely high level and you can pretty much have any feature you can imagine, and standard equipment levels are suitably generous, as you’d expect from such a revered brand. However, the entry-level XT4 Luxury is a genuinely exciting proposition because it’s priced at a level that can easily compete with high-spec versions of models from some non-luxury brands, and that means it can work as a superb gateway model for the Cadillac brand.
Standard XT4 Luxury features and equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, Automatic Emergency Braking, heated front, and rear and steering wheel, LED headlights, a power liftgate, a 7-speaker audios system, Adaptive Remote Start, dual-zone automatic climate control, an HD Rear Vision Camera, Rear Park Assist, and an infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
The 2022 Cadillac XT4 is a fabulous-looking subcompact crossover SUV that anyone would be proud to be seen driving around Sherwood Park, St. Albert, Spruce Grove, Leduc or anywhere else in and around Edmonton.
