As the gateway to the Cadillac brand, the 2022 CT4 sedan offers a sense of fun, and you will find pleasure in its more expensive and better-performing sisters. Its refreshing handling and aesthetics also mean that it has the ability to compete with European compact car competitors (such as the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé and Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedans). Either a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which can produce 237 horsepower, or a 2.7-liter turbocharged engine, which can produce up to 325 horsepower in the top version of the V series. By the way, this model does not have to be mistaken for the faster CT4-V Blackwing model, let’s look at it separately. Our biggest criticism of the CT4 is that we have used other Cadillac models-the interior materials and atmosphere do not match the luxury brand competitors, which provide a more upscale look and feel.
What’s new in 2022?
Two separate packages bundle Cadillac’s Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system with 2022 Premium Luxury and Sport interior luxury and convenience products. The Super Cruise 1 package includes a 12.0-inch digital dashboard, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a 360-degree camera, while the Super Cruise 2 package adds some details, such as advanced Bose stereo system, dashboard navigation and so on. Basic luxury models are now equipped with more standard driver assistance features, including automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring and lane keeping assist. The CT4 is equipped with an optional 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and there are no more volume and control buttons on the dashboard. All models now come standard with a wireless smartphone charger.
Price and which to buy
The mid-range Premium Luxury finish marks the first choice of the CT4 series. Switching from basic luxury models to high-end luxury models brings subtleties such as leather upholstery and 18-inch wheels. We will splurge and add an advanced Bose sound system, which includes navigation and 14-speaker stereo. No matter which option package you choose, do yourself a favor and specify a more powerful 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
Engine, transmission and performance
Buyers can choose between two turbocharged four-cylinder engines: a 237-horsepower 2.0-liter engine powers the basic Luxury and Premium Luxury and mid-range Sport models, while the 2.7-liter engine is optional. CT4-V. . It produces 309 horsepower in the first and 325 horsepower in the second. The smaller of the two engines is equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission, while the larger of the four engines is equipped with a 10-speed transmission. Rear-wheel drive is a standard and rare configuration in this market segment.Opponents like this Audi A3, BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé and Mercedes Class A are based on front-wheel drive chassis. CT4 offers all-wheel drive as an option on all models.We drive CT4-V And found it sporty, greedy and fast, although we prefer more improvements to the 10-speed gearbox. Even in this most sporty appearance, Caddy’s suspension can handle potholes without punishing the occupants and provide clear and beneficial handling that any car enthusiast can appreciate.
Real-world fuel economy and MPG
The CT4’s two turbocharged four-cylinder engines provide good fuel economy. The rear-wheel drive model equipped with a 2.0-liter engine has a city fuel consumption of 23 miles/gallon, a highway fuel consumption of 34 miles/gallon, and a total fuel consumption of 27 miles/gallon. Switching to all-wheel drive would reduce the number of highways by 2 miles per gallon and the combined number by 1. The more powerful 2.7-liter engine is less efficient, but not too much. The rear-wheel drive model is a combination of 20 mpg in the city, 30 mpg highway and 24 mpg. The main competitor of CT4—— Audi A3, BMW 2 Series Gran CoupéAnd Mercedes-Benz A-Class-All have similar fuel economy ratings.For more information on CT4 fuel economy, please visit EPA website.
Interior, comfort and load capacity
Inside the CT4, Cadillac wisely chose a more user-friendly control setting instead of the main tactile interface. Found on ATSIf the quality of interior layouts and materials are attractive at first glance, they are ultimately commonplace. For adults, the interior space is tight, especially the rear seats, but Cadillac even provides several standard luxury features on the basic decoration, including 12-way power front seats and two-zone automatic climate Control. The upgrade provides more ideal features, such as leather interior, magnesium shift paddles, indoor ambient lighting, and memory settings for the driver’s seat and exterior mirrors.
