WHAT YOU’LL LOVE:
Let’s start with this optional gorgeous Twilight Blue Metallic ($470) paint job. It reminds me of the crushed sapphires and the nautical shades of navy from my years working with the Air Force. It faintly shimmers under the gaze of the sun and just makes you smile when you look at it. At less than $500, it is an addition that I am happy to pay for.
Debuted in 2018, the XT4 entered the market as GM’s luxury small or sub-compact SUV answer to the Equinox and the Terrain. Since then, the XT4 has evolved into the edition that we see today. The 9-speed automatic allows for simple driving that transitions with ease. It has a bit of get up and go at the higher speeds and loves the highway… less so the stop and go of commute traffic.
+ Massage in the front passenger seats, four-way power lumbar control, leather throughout in a pale gray that GM calls Light Platinum and Jet Black accents from the dash to the steering wheel along the edging and on the consoles throughout contrast in a comfortable, clean way that is not distracting, but rather soothing in its luxury and appointment of texture.
+ Sound is enhanced by a Bose-powered sound system. Crisp clear sound will provide a soundtrack to your daily drive and road trips.
+ 60-40 folding seats, power-folding taillights, and for the added expense, you can add a sunroof to add interior light, the Cadillac User Experience with embedded navigation and an enhanced driver assistance package.
+ Cupholders that actually fit the variety of cups and bottles that go through my day was a pleasant surprise and decent gas mileage at around 30 miles per gallon makes the post-covid driver in me very happy. Charging ports within easy reach of my back-seat passengers add an extra element of ease that all my parents will understand.
The front and rear fascia are part of the Radiant Package. A streamlining package ($2,695) that delivers a surround Galvano Grille, monochromatic Cadillac badging with 20” Split 7-Spoke Alloy Wheels that add an element of sparkle and shine that is a delight.
Drivers will love twin-clutch all-wheel drive and the four-wheel independent suspension as a standard element. The safety suite and features that it includes like front collision alert, parking assist, pedestrian detection and the ability to access the crystal-clear HD vision camera will be an added bonus. All combined deliver an extra layer of confidence-granting security.
