Comparisons can be a great way to understand the dynamics of a car’s styling and just how it performs. With the current state of the automotive industry being what it is, buyers looking for a luxury compact crossover should be well-acquainted with the latest and greatest offerings from both INFINITI and Cadillac.

A perfect example would be comparing the 2021 Cadillac XT4 vs. the 2021 INFINITI QX50.

Passenger Space

The QX50 has a greater passenger capacity than the XT4 (104.4 vs. 101.3 cubic feet). That’s about 3.1 cubic feet more.

Additionally, the QX50 has:

  • 1.6 more inches in front headroom
  • 1.1 more inches in front hip room
  • Nine more inches in the front shoulder room
  • Nine more inches in rear headroom
  • Four more inches in the posterior hip room
  • Two additional inches in the back of the vehicle

And for added passenger comfort, the QX50 has reclining rear seats, something the XT4 doesn’t have.



With one touch of the switches, all the QX50’s power windows can fully open or close, which makes it more convenient at toll booths and drive-up windows, among other similar settings. To fully open or shut the XT4’s rear power window switches, you must keep them held for a more extended period.

The driver may close all of the windows on the QX50 when they are open by using the handle outside the door. The driver may also lower the windows at a distance using a keyless remote when it’s hot. On the other hand, the windows on the XT4 can only be closed by the driver, but the ignition has to be off.

The 2021 INFINITI QX50 comes with a standard locking fuel door that includes a remote release near the driver. A fuel door secured with a lock helps prevent gasoline thievery and vandalism, such as sugar in the tank.

On the other hand, the 2021 Cadillac XT4 doesn’t have a locking fuel door, and its keyless entry system includes one less press to open the doors. When the turn signal is turned on, the cornering lights, which are optional, on the XT4 (except Luxury) illuminate a lamp in one of the front corners.

Depending on the steering wheel’s angle and the vehicle’s speed, standard adaptive cornering lights on the QX50 Sensory/Autograph turn up to several degrees of the actual headlight unit. It lights an immense gap into corners at every speed, which the XT4 doesn’t do. To block the heat and glare for the rear passengers, manually deployable back side window sunshades are available on the QX50. However, the XT4 has no such options.



The INFINITI QX50’s front and rear seat shoulder belts include pretensioners, which tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision. Unlike the QX50, the XT4 doesn’t offer pretensioners for front or rear seatbelts.

This makes the QX50 more prepared for an accident than the XT4, which is a plus even if no one wishes to ever be in one.

The QX50 comes standard with a 4-year/60,000-mile warranty for the whole truck, including 24-hour roadside assistance. But the XT4’s limited basic warranty expires 10,000 miles sooner than the QX50’s. The corrosion warranty on the QX50 is one year longer than that of the XT4, which is 7 vs. 6 years. Hence, the QX50 will spend less time in the shop due to rust.
