The 2021 Cadillac CT4 may have replaced the former ATS in GM’s luxury lineup, and as the former four-door is an irresistible sedan in many ways.

The new Cadillac CT 4 will receive two major safety changes. Automatic braking has become standard equipment, and perhaps even more important is SuperCruise, Cadillac’s semi-autonomous driving feature.

This marks the first time the system has been available in any Cadillac other than the already decommissioned CT6 sedan. SuperCruise will also be available in CT5 and Escalade models.


In most trim levels, the CT4 is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine. This motor produces 237 horsepower and works with an automatic transmission in eight steps. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional.

The CT4-V uses a 2.7-liter turbocharged engine that develops 325 horses. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and the transmission is shifted by a ten-speed automatic transmission.

The base CT4 is the more fuel efficient of the two engines, returning 23 mpg city, 34 highway, 27 combined. Subtract 1 to 2 mpg when equipped with four-wheel drive.

The optional 2.7-liter turbo-4 overcomes 21/31/25 mpg with rear-wheel drive and 21/29/24 mpg with all-wheel drive.

Now with emergency braking as standard, the CT4 also opens up other electronic assistants and active safety systems, including intelligent cruise control.

The Cadillac SuperCruise is also optional this year. This system, which is one of the most advanced semi-autonomous driver assistance systems, enables hands-free driving and relieves stress of highway driving.

Neither NHTSA nor IIHS have yet conducted CT4 crash tests.

Options and prices

• The new CT4 is a great deal. The base Luxury trim starts at around $ 34,000 and includes features such as synthetic leather upholstery, eight-inch touchscreen, media information system with smartphone screen mirroring across all mobile platforms. The lighting technology is fully LED.

• Upgrading to Premium Luxury trim pushes the price up to $ 39,000 or so, but boasts leather upholstery, auto-dimming mirrors and rain-sensitive wipers. The 2.7-liter engine costs $ 4,000.

• The Sport trim only costs about $ 40,000 and works exclusively with the smaller engine. Features such as Brembo brakes and a sports steering wheel with magnesium paddle shifters help make the most of its 237 horsepower.

• At the top of the range is the CT4-V configuration. It only comes with a larger 2.7-liter engine and also includes Magnetic Ride Control, performance suspension and a limited slip rear differential. The cabin has wireless charger for devices and a Bose sound system with 14 speakers.


Apart from the arguably larger CT5, the CT4 may be the best example of Cadillac’s current design language.

As with the ATS it replaced, the CT4 has rear-wheel drive proportions that give it grace and power. This is reflected in the slanted stance and sharp lines.

The purposeful looking front end is our favorite CT4 viewing angle. Slim headlights and an intricate grille transform the front end into something new without breaking the linearity of previous Cadillacs.


The interior of the new CT4 isn’t as attractive as other Cadillacs. It is well organized and thought out to the smallest detail.

The eight-inch touch screen interface is compatible with smartphones, easy to use and operate. We’d love to see a bigger screen at least in the options menu, but we’ll happily take logical software instead of an XL screen.

The front seats are good for something that claims to be a sports sedan. In other words, they are comfortable, but a little modest in width.

Base models get power seats and synthetic leather upholstery, while the top-end is replaced with genuine leather — two leathers are available — and up to 14 seat adjustment positions. The seats can even be your masseuse.

We only want the back seat to be half as attractive as the front. Sadly, this is nothing new, anyone familiar with the ATS will remember that cramped rear seats were a common complaint from that model’s owners. The new car does nothing to address these issues, as its 33.5 inches of rear legroom is the same as the ATS.

Trunk is also limited at just under 11 cubic feet, but the rear seatbacks fold down to increase cargo capacity.
