The 2022 Cadillac XT4 is a moderately sized vehicle that is one of the best looking SUVs in its class. This combined with its potent engine and lavish cabin make it a force to be reckoned with, but is it good enough to beat the 2022 INFINITI QX50, a spectacular SUV with a curvaceous exterior, cutting edge driver assistance and uncompromising splendor?
Design & Style
The INFINITI QX50 is an engineering marvel. It presents a dashing form with lines that are elegant and refined. The roof pillar in back is kinked and the grille in front has a unique outline with LEDs that complement it perfectly. Within the cabin the dashboard is divided in a manner which favors drivers, but the dual display infotainment system is convenient to use and readily accessible at all times.
The Cadillac XT4 has a broad grille flanked by headlamps which are ornate. It can be purchased in a broad color range, and passengers within the cabin will be presented with eight inch touch displays. The interior is covered with leather and the bucket seats in front can cool, heat or massage passengers as needed.
Technology & Safety
Every Cadillac XT4 is outfitted with numerous airbags and emergency automated brakes. Additional countermeasures include blind area monitoring, headlights with automated high beams, and cruise control which is adaptive. Perks within its cabin include an audio system from Bose, adaptive dampers, climate control and the choice of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
The NHTSA loves the INFINITI QX50 and has bestowed a perfect 5 star safety rating. It has passed every test with flying colors and the IIHS also has good things to say about it. The SUV is equipped with all the features found in the Cadillac, including a highly advanced cruise control mechanism which is adaptive and maintains the vehicle’s central positioning in its lane while lowering driver fatigue. Luxuries within its cabin include remote start, parking sensors, Bose audio, heated seating, and a camera with surround view.
The INFINITI QX50 is powered by a turbo 4, 2 liter engine that can generate 268 horsepower that works in conjunction with a variable compression mechanism. The Cadillac XT4 is powered by a turbo 4, 2 liter engine that can generate 237 horsepower with 258 pounds of torque that is wedded to an automatic nine speed transmission.
The Bottom Line
This is a closely contested battle, as both SUVs have a fabulous appearance with many of the same luxury and safety features. That being said, the INFINITI QX50 has an edge in horsepower and performance, the all-wheel drive in the Cadillac isn’t that great, and this combined with its average rear seat makes the INFINITI QX50 the winner.
