Unfortunately, the XT4's track record contains a few blemishes. The turbo-four engine feels strained at times, and ride quality and handling fall short of rivals' standards. This Cadillac also has more hard plastics than you'd expect to see in a luxury crossover.

If you want a sporty crossover with a comfortable ride, look elsewhere because the XT4 provides neither. Several competitors are more engaging than this Cadillac, which has sloppy steering and mediocre handling. Some critics say the XT4 rides smoothly, while others say the suspension doesn't do a good job of absorbing road imperfections.
