Cadillac is about to hop on on the compact crossover bandwagon.

Spotted testing in Lapland, Finland, this is believed to be the XT4, Cadillac’s answer to the BMW X3, Audi Q5 and Mercedes GLC. Despite slotting in below the year-old Cadillac XT5, it’s presumed the XT4 will share a version of GM’s short-wheelbase C1XX crossover platform with its older sibling.

Few details are known about Cadillac’s plans for the XT4, but the shooters suggest it will steal a suite of safety and tech features from the XT5 and we also expect Cadillac’s latest iteration of CUE to be used.

It’s believed when the XT4 arrives for the 2019 model year it will be available with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine making close to 300-hp and it could feature GM’s new 9T50 nine-speed automatic transmission.

In terms of price, the XT4 should clock in somewhere between the low-to-mid $30,000 mark. Look for more info to become available as we get closer to its expected unveiling next year.

    Probably just another boring re-badge in the wreath-less yawnfest that is postmodern Cadillac.

    Wish they would bring a 1st gen srx back with a 3rd row and v6 or v8 option so a person could still pull something or have some passing power. That was one of the best suv/crossover's. More affordable than the escalade and little smaller but still big enough. The 2nd gen srx and xt5, have to change the names to be confusing to people, already is an x3 or q5. Don't see the point in making something smaller than the xt5, it'll be the most useless thing ever. I would assume this will be a buick encore? Wonder how sales will be on this. Bring back a n/a v8, love that v8 torque, no replacement for displacement. If I wanted a 4 banger turbo out of the fast and furious I'd get a civic. This is supposed to be a cadillac. Miss my seville so bad.

      Wait a few years and you will get your Seville -- as a laid-back ride in a funeral hearst!
