Cadillac introduced the smallest sedan in its lineup – the CT4. For the new product, which will be available in 2020, the Super Cruise semi-automatic control system will be available.

The Cadillac CT4 engine range includes a two-liter four-cylinder supercharged engine producing 240 hp. and 350 Nm of torque. This engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

As an alternative, a more powerful 2.7-liter turbocharged Quartet is available, delivering 313 hp. and 471 Nm. Transmission – 10-speed automatic. Cars are available with both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

The list of standard equipment includes a keyless entry system, dual-zone climate control, leather seats, as well as a multimedia system with an eight-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay / Android Auto and an active anti-phase noise suppression system. The top versions of the sedan have LED optics, light and rain sensors, mirrors with auto-dimming, as well as an automatic emergency braking system with pedestrian recognition.

In addition, the Cadillac CT4 can be ordered with the proprietary Super Cruise semi-automatic control system, which is currently only available for one Cadillac model – the flagship CT6 sedan. The system works on the basis of the Lidar front-end radar and a complex of cameras providing all-round visibility. In addition, GPS-navigator and map service helps to navigate in space.

Electronics controls the steering, accelerator and braking system when the car moves along the highway. In this case, the driver must monitor the road and at any time be ready to completely take control.
