2020 Acura RDX vs 2020 Cadillac XT4

Serving Ridgeland, MS

Equipped with scores of all-new mechanical and safety technologies, the 2020 Acura RDX sets new standards for the luxury SUV market. The 2020 Cadillac XT4 is also a noteworthy player in the same luxury niche. However, the SH-AWD and AcuraWatch are some features that give the RDX clear advantages over the XT4 in numerous categories.


Whipping out a maximum of 272 horsepower, a 2.0 L turbocharged engine is an excellent fit for the sporty 2020 RDX. The proprietary VTEC technology is integrated into the DOHC valvetrain for efficient combustion. When working at 1,600 RPM and above, this turbo propulsion system spits out 280 pound-feet of torque. Despite having a turbocharger, the 2020 XT4’s I-4 engine can’t generate more than 237 hp and 258 lb-ft. This standard powertrain engages up to nine different gear speeds in an automatic transmission. You’ll have up to 10 different gear combinations at your fingertips in the 2020 RDX.

Additionally, the Grade Logic Control and Shift Hold Control optimize gear ratios for uphill and downhill driving. Paddle shifters allow you to activate additional settings in the automatic gearbox, including the Comfort and Sport modes. This lavish Acura SUV also offers best-in-class handling thanks to the Super Handling AWD, which beats the XT4’s twin-clutch AWD. Standard in the RDX, the Agile Handling Assist, Motion Adaptive Steering, and Adaptive Dampers are some exclusive mechanical features that you won’t find in the Cadillac rival.


The 2020 RDX is equipped with powerful front headlights that have the unique Jewel Eye design. Up to eight efficient LED bulbs are installed in each light. Want to make another fashion statement on the road? Add the Diamond Pentagon design to the front grille. Additionally, the car’s Dragon Taillights combine traditional Japanese styling with futuristic innovation. Rain-sensing windshield wipers and fog lights are also available for this lavish Acura SUV. You will not find any comparable exterior features in the 2020 XT4. However, this Cadillac model offers a power liftgate with a hands-free mechanism. Want to customize the RDX’s interior with posh materials? Add the perforated Milano leather trimming to the front seats. The Sport Seats are also available with contrast stitching and piping. The Advance Package allows you to enjoy the 16-way power seats with a handful of ergonomic accessories, such as thigh extensions and side bolsters.


When you handle the 2020 RDX, you’ll receive warnings regarding lane departures and potential forward collisions. The all-new Blind Spot Awareness also sharpens your focus on a busy road. A cruise control system with the Low-Speed Follow technology makes your commute less stressful in the city. This high-end Acura car also has parking sensors that detect obstructions behind you and in front of you. Of course, the RDX retains other traditional active safety technologies, like the Collision Mitigation Braking. Despite having the Automatic Emergency Braking, the 2020 XT4 doesn’t offer as many driving aides as this Acura model.
