Cadillac XT4 vs. Cadillac XT5 Dimensional Comparison

The Cadillac XT4 is Cadillac’s first-ever compact crossover. That much you already know. But how does it stack up against the larger, midsize XT5? That’s what we’ve set out to find out in this installment of the Cadillac Society Dimensional Comparison.

Exterior

On the outside, the all-new XT4 has a shorter wheelbase and resulting overall length when compared to the XT5. It’s also narrower (albeit not by much) and squatter from a height standpoint.

The XT4’s smaller size as well as an engine with two fewer cylinders enables the XT4 to be significantly lighter than the XT5. But despite the differences in size, weight, and engine type, both the XT4 and XT5 have equal maximum towing capacities of 3,500 pounds (or 1,587 kilos).

Interior

Inside, the 2019 Cadillac XT4 seats five in a 2/3 seating configuration, just like the XT5. Surprisingly, the XT4 has more front and rear headroom than the XT5. Though the XT4 has less front legroom than that of the XT5, its rear legroom is equal.

Cargo Capacity

It’s perhaps in the cargo department that the difference between the two Cadillac SUVs is most notable: the XT4 has significantly less cargo capacity than the XT5 – both behind the rear seats and behind the first row, when the rear seats are folded.

See the data for yourself, in both metric and imperial forms, in the tables below.

  1. The new XT4 will take away some of the XT5 sales, but there are buyers who will prefer the XT5 instead for its greater dimensions and cargo area. I would prefer the XT4 if Cadillac will offer a hybrid or PHEV version soon.
