What the Critics Say

The suspension consists of struts up front and a multilink setup at the rear, with the Sport model offering an Active Sport Suspension with adaptive dampers.We will soon see how all the XT4’s new bits and pieces come together dynamically. But at least stylistically, Cadillac’s new baby looks good, even better than the XT5.” — Car and Driver
