Cadillac 2021 CT4

Cadillac 2021 CT4

2021 Cadillac As the only American offering in a segment dominated by Europeans, the 2021 Cadillac CT4 has a lot to prove. Fortunately, its sharp styling is matched by its playful driving demeanor, and the CT4 acts as a desirable entry-level caddy that doesn’t disregard the desires and needs of enthusiastic drivers. 

Two turbocharged four-cylinder engines are available : a 237-hp 2.0-liter engine is standard, but we recommend an optional 2.7-liter 309-horsepower mill. Buyers looking for more performance should stick with the CT4-V Blackwing (reviewed separately), which will debut in 2021. Unfortunately for Cadillac, the CT4’s cabin somewhat does not achieve the same goal as the luxury compact cars. Such as the BMW 2-series Gran Coupe and Mercedes-Benz A-class.

The CT4 is entering its second year on the market with some improvements, an optional 12.0-inch digital display and the available Diamond Sky Edition package. The latter adds a lower body kit, Brembo brakes, model-specific wheels, an aluminum-trimmed center console, and two-tone leather upholstery, among other things. Cadillac also made previously optional driver assistance features—such as automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection—standard and added a Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving mode as an option.

The Premium Luxury mid-range model represents a valuable place in the CT4 lineup. The transition from the base Luxury to Premium Luxury brings in subtle details like genuine leather upholstery and 18-inch wheels. We’d splurge and add the Bose premium audio system, which includes navigation, a 14-speaker stereo system with a wireless smartphone charging pad. Whichever option packages you choose, do yourself a favor and select the most powerful 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

Buyers can choose between two turbocharged four-cylinder engines: a 2.0-liter 237-horsepower engine that powers the base Luxury, Premium Sport and mid-range models, while a 2.7-liter engine is optional on Premium Luxury and standard on the CT4-V .

It generates 309 horsepower in the former and 325 horsepower in the second. The smaller of the two engines is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission while the larger four get a 10-speed. Rear wheel drive is the standard arrangement and a rarity in this segment. Competitors such as the Audi A3, BMW 2-series Gran Coupe and Mercedes A-class all rely on a front-engine chassis. The CT4 offers an all-wheel drive option on all models. We drove the CT4-V and found it sporty, enthusiastic and fast, although we would have preferred a little more improvement from the 10-speed gearbox. Even in this sportier appearance, Caddy’s suspension handles the potholes without punishing the occupants and provides a sharp, rewarding handling that any car enthusiast can appreciate.

fuel economy

Both turbocharged four-cylinder CT4 engines provide adequate fuel economy. Rear-wheel drive models with the 2.0-liter are rated high at 23 mpg city, 34 mpg highway, and 27 mpg combined. Choosing all-wheel drive lowers the highway number by 2 mpg and the combined number by 1. The more powerful 2.7-liter engine is less efficient but not by much, with the rear-wheel drive model coming in at 20 mpg city, and 30 mpg highway. rapid, and 24 mpg combined. The CT4’s main competitors – the Audi A3, BMW 2-series Gran Coupe, and Mercedes-Benz A-class – all have similar fuel economy ratings.

Inside the CT4, Cadillac wisely switched to a more user-friendly control setup versus the ATS’s touch-sensitive interface . Although the interior design and quality of materials seem attractive at first, it is unremarkable in the end. Cabin space is tight for adults, especially in the rear seats, but Cadillac offers several luxury features as standard even in the base, including 12-way power-adjustable front seats and dual-zone automatic climate control. Transitioning across the range offers more attractive features, such as leather upholstery, magnesium paddle shifters, ambient interior lighting, and memory settings for the driver’s seat and exterior mirrors.

Information, entertainment and contact Cadillac 2021

All CT4 vehicles come with an 8.0″ touch screen display with the latest CUE software. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto interfaces come standard, as is the onboard Wi-Fi hotspot. Cadillac offers navigation on all models. It comes with a wireless smartphone charging pad and a 14-speaker Bose stereo system that replaces the car’s standard eight-speaker arrangement.

Safety and driver assistance features

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have published crash test results for the CT4. Cadillac offers a host of driver assistance features, but few are available as standard, which is curious considering mainstream small cars like the Toyota Corolla and Mazda 3 offer such features for free. Key safety features include:

 Standard Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

 Lane departure warning with lane-keep assist

 Available adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving mode

Warranty and maintenance coverage

Cadillac beats its competitors with an extra two years and 20,000 extra miles of coverage on the powertrain portion of its warranty, but Class II Gran Coupe buyers are treated to three years of free maintenance while the CT4 offers just one free visit.

 The limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles

 The powertrain warranty covers six years or 70,000 miles

 Free maintenance is covered for the first visit
