Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XT4 than in the Volvo XC40. The Cadillac XT4 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC40, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XT4 as you will with the Volvo XC40, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Cadillac XT4 or the Volvo XC40, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT4 is much wider than the Volvo XC40, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac XT4, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC40.

Handling
The Cadillac XT4 has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC40, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Cadillac XT4 will do just as well as the Volvo XC40, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Cadillac XT4 has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC40.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Cadillac XT4 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volvo XC40.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac XT4 and the Volvo XC40. The Cadillac XT4 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC40.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac XT4 than that of the Volvo XC40.
