After revealing the somewhat potent CT4-V earlier this year, Cadillac is now showing off the more frugal base version. The 2020 Cadillac CT4 joins the lineup as the brand’s new entry-level sedan.
The CT4-V boasts a tempting 325 hp from its 2.7-liter turbo-four, but not all small sedan buyers will need, or want, that much power. The regular CT4 comes standard with an eight-speed automatic and a 2.0-liter turbo-four with 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Hey, at least that’s more hp than a base 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA or Audi A3. The Premium Luxury trim offers a detuned 2.7-liter with an estimated 309 hp and 348 lb-ft of torque. Models with the 2.7-liter are paired to a 10-speed automatic.
The CT4 is available with rear- or all-wheel drive, and in Luxury, Sport, and Premium Luxury trims. Brembo performance front brakes are standard kit on the Sport model, as well as cosmetic upgrades such as dark exterior accents and a body-color rear spoiler. Premium Luxury CT4 models get their own unique exterior cues, including brightwork on the door handles.
Standard convenience features on the CT4 include an 8-inch touchscreen, dual-display driver information center, dual-zone auto climate control, split-folding rear seats, leatherette seats, audio system with active noise cancellation, and LED interior lighting. On the list of available goodies, you’ll find a head-up display, leather appointed seats, wireless charging, and a Bose premium surround sound system. Cadillac’s advanced Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system will be available on the CT4 during the 2020 calendar year.
