2020 Cadillac CT4 Price Is Hard To Beat

Pricing / 10 Comments

It's time to cross shop a Cadillac with European sedans again.

It seems a strange time to introduce a new car model to the SUV-dominate market, but Cadillac is firm about its new CT4 model. Cadillac wouldn't be so vulgar as to call it an entry-level model so, instead, the CT4 is pitched at "new generation of sport-luxury customers."

The CT4 is built on Cadillac's upgraded rear-wheel-drive platform and features "near-perfect weight distribution." It's designed to be an athletic, nimble, and responsive driving experience in the vein of BMW's 2 Series as well as directly competing with the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Cadillac elbowing its way into the entry-level segment means pricing has to be competitive. The CT4 is set to start at $33,990 including destination charges, which slots it firmly in under the BMW 2 Series and Mercedes A-Class in price, and just a little more expensive than the Audi A3. The CT4 base Luxury model comes with Cadillac's 2.0-liter turbo engine making 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Stepping up to the Premium Luxury trim costs $38,490 and introduces the option of Cadillac's new 2.7-liter turbo engine estimated to make 309 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque.

The CT4 in Sport trim with its sport-bolstered seats and sporty trim additions will set you back $39,590 while the top of the line CT4-V starts all the way up at $45,490. That will get you a high-output version of the 2.7L turbo engine estimated by Cadillac to make 325 hp via a 10-speed automatic transmission. It also adds a limited-slip diff, Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 on rear-wheel-drive models, Brembo front brakes, summer tires on 18-inch wheels, V-Mode vehicle performance mode, and aesthetic changes inside and out.

To add all-wheel-drive to the drivetrain, the cost is an extra $2,600 to the Luxury and Sport trimmed models to put them at $36,590 and $42,190 respectively. Like the Luxury and Sport trims, the CT4-V all-wheel-drive option also adds the Cold Weather Package for the price but costs just an extra $1,100 and a total of $46,590. Adding all-wheel drive on the Premium Luxury trimmed CT4 adds the Climate Package and ramps the price up by $3,200 to $41,690.

Overall, it looks like Cadillac is pushing hard to take on the German premium carmakers again. If the price versus horsepower matters to you, the Mercedes A-Class starts at $32,800 but is down on power. The Audi A3starts at $33,300 and makes marginally less power. The CT4 Luxury has two more doors and undercuts the BMW 2 Series coupebase model by $1,300, but the 2 Series makes an extra 10 hp.
