That is exactly why we created this comparison review, so you no longer have to stress and we can do the work for you! We narrowed down the segment to two of the most popular models, on the left side is the 2020 Volvo XC40 and on the right side, the 2020 Cadillac XT4. Read on as we compare what these two models have to offer from engine options and features to help you make the most informed decision!

2020 Volvo XC40 Power & Handling

There are two engine options offered for the Volvo XC40. The base engine, called the T4, is a 2,0-liter turbocharged inline-4 that delivers up to 221 pound-feet of torque and 187 horsepower. This engine is configured with FWD but AWD is offered. The EPA estimates it can reach up to 33 mpg on the highway. The second engine offered is called the T5 and is also 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 but this time it creates up to 258 pound-feet of torque and 248 horsepower. This engine is configured with standard AWD. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and come with an engine start/stop configuration.

2020 Cadillac XT4 Power & Handling

There is only one engine offered for the Cadillac XT4. This 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 generates up to 258 pound-feet of torque and 237 horsepower. Cadillac pairs this engine with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain configuration but all-wheel drive is available. The EPA estimates this engine can only reach up to 30 mpg on the highway.

2020 Volvo XC40 Features & Design

There are three XC40 trim levels to choose from. The base model called the Momentum comes with features like driver-seat memory functions, LED headlights, faux-leather upholstery, keyless entry and ignition, a power liftgate, auto-dimming rearview mirror, Apple and Android smartphone integration, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, and an eight-speaker sound system. There are two outstanding packages offered for this trim level that add even more features! The upper trim levels add a hands-free liftgate, navigation, bigger wheels, dual-zone climate control, a hands-free liftgate, a wireless charging pad, leather upholstery, panoramic sunroof, and more!

2020 Cadillac XT4 Features & Design

There are also three Cadillac XT4 trim levels offered for the 2020 model year. The base model, called the Luxury, comes with heated front seats, simulated leather upholstery, a Wi-Fi hotspot, alloy wheels, and a power-adjustable steering column. It looks like this Luxury trim isn't luxurious after all. The other trims add a hands-free liftgate, driver aids like blind-spot monitoring, sport front seats, driver-seat memory functions, and more.


After breaking down what both of these models have to offer, it is easy to see that the 2020 Volvo XC40 is the one to choose! The Cadillac XT4 is pretty bare-bones for a luxury SUV and it just can't keep up with what the 2020 Volvo XC40 offers. From the great engine lineup with excellent fuel economy to the trims level packed with features, the Volvo XC40 offers something for everyone.
