Cadillac has announced the Middle East arrival of the all-new XT4, the brand’s first compact SUV.
Featuring Cadillac’s new 2.0L Turbo engine and advanced technology, the XT4 delivers expressive design, confident performance and spacious accommodations.
Developed on an exclusive compact SUV architecture, the XT4 marks Cadillac’s entry to the industry’s fastest-growing luxury segment. As one of Cadillac’s key regions in the world, the Middle East promises to be an ideal market for the all-new XT4, the carmaker says.
Christian Soemmer, managing director, Cadillac Middle East, said: “Following the regional debut of the 2019 Cadillac XT4 at SOLE DXB, the all-new compact SUV’s arrival in the Middle East sets high standards of innovation in one of the industry’s fastest growing segments.”
Soemmer continued: “A team of young designers were involved with the development of the XT4, who represent the heart of the target audience. The sophisticated SUV exterior and intelligently designed cabin will no doubt prove a hit amongst regional millennial consumers who expect daring bold designs and cutting-edge technology.”
Simple and sculpted lines draw the customer in and accentuate the XT4’s powerful proportions and aggressive presence. All models feature advanced LED lighting technology front and rear. Cadillac’s vertical L-shaped lighting signature is stretched horizontally, emphasising the XT4’s width and confident stance.
The interior is the Cadillac design aesthetic distilled: the thoughtful and artistic integration of technology and appealing style. The cabin is exceptionally refined, with expected segment-leading rear-seat spaciousness. The new XT4’s cabin conveys boldness and strength with youthful athleticism. Sweeping arcs and tapered lines enhance the feeling of spaciousness and give it a taut, tightly wrapped appearance, the company says.
The interior elements come together in a sophisticated and modern design. Intuitive technology includes available next-generation wireless device charging and an in-cabin air ionizer. Led by the latest Cadillac User Experience, the brand’s most advanced infotainment interface, the XT4 offers a connected environment. The next generation Cadillac User Experience is a dynamic platform that offers a smartphone-like experience with an intuitive interface, faster response and improved voice.
All XT4 models are driven by an all-new Cadillac 2.0L Turbo engine, producing an SAE-certified output of 237 hp (177 kW). Coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission with next-generation Electronic Precision Shift, the new engine features new efficiency-enhancing technologies including Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation).
The XT4 also sees the debut of Cadillac’s new global “Y” trim strategy, with specific content and styling cues featured on distinctive Premium Luxury and Sport trims, tailored to different customer tastes and preferences.
Seven exterior colors are offered on the 2019 XT4: Autumn Metallic, Crystal White Tricoat, Twilight Blue Metallic, Shadow Metallic, Red Horizon Tintcoat, Stellar Black Metallic and Radiant Silver Metallic.
The all-new compact SUV represents Cadillac’s 10-year expansion plan and shift in direction. Starting with the first-ever XT4, Cadillac will bring six new models to market in the space of two and a half years, it says.
