The Cadillac XT4 crossover is now offered in the Sport trim level for the Mexican market. Previously, the XT4 was only available in the Premium Luxury trim level, one of the two branches in Cadillac’s Y trim level strategy. As such, the XT4 is now the first Cadillac model to adopt the new trim level cadence in the Mexican market.
“Cadillac XT4 is distinguished by being fun to drive, luxurious and full of technology,” said Marketing Manager of GM Mexico for Buick, GMC and Cadillac, Yammil Guaida, in a statement translated from Spanish by our sister publication, Cadillac Society. “We are now adding the Sport version, which offers an exciting driving option to customers, both in the city and for those daily escapes.”
The Cadillac XT4 Sport stands apart from the Premium Luxury trim level thanks to a selection of aesthetic changes, with the Sport swapping the bright trim bits and accents of the Premium Luxury for darker glossy elements. This includes new trim-specific upgrades to the side moldings, grille section and front fascia.
In the corners, the Cadillac XT4 is equipped with 20-inch wheels, while the rear end boasts transparent taillamp housings, breaking from the red taillamps of the Premium Luxury. The Cadillac XT4 is also exclusively offered with an Active Sport suspension through the Sport Dynamics Preferred Package, which features continuous damping control for a more agile ride.
The rest of the spec goes unchanged, including the engine and drivetrain. Motivation is provided by the turbocharged 2.0L LSY four-cylinder, which doles out 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed through the GM nine-speed automatic transmission.
Buyers can find the 2020 Cadillac XT4 in dealers now. Pricing starts at $830,000 pesos ($43,382 at current exchange rates, 10/24/2019). Meanwhile, the Premium Luxury prices out at $785,000 pesos ($41,030 at current exchange rates).
Interestingly, Cadillac has yet to offer the base-level Cadillac XT4 Luxury for the Mexican market, which limits the model’s competitiveness and sales volume there. Nevertheless, the addition of the Cadillac XT4 Sport should bode well for buyers looking to add a little extra performance flavor to their crossover.
