Cadillac Smart System
Cadillac Smart System is the American luxury brand’s suite of standard safety and driver assistance technologies. Featuring a wide array of active and passive features, this comprehensive group of vehicle safety technologies offers 2023 XT4 owners enhanced peace of mind knowing that their vehicle has got their back while out on the road. The Cadillac Smart System suite of standard safety and driver assistance features include:
- Front Pedestrian Braking
- Forward Collision Alert
- Automatic Emergency Braking
- Safety Alert Seat
- Rear Seat Reminder
- HD Rear Vision Camera
- Teen Driver Monitoring
Front Pedestrian Braking
Standard on all 2023 XT4 models, this emergency braking feature assists you in avoiding or reducing the severity of a front-end collision with a pedestrian ahead of you. Through the use of front-mounted radar sensors and cameras, the front pedestrian braking system detects obstacles ahead of you and alerts you through audible and visual signals. The system can even automatically engage the vehicle’s emergency brakes or enhance your own hard emergency braking maneuver. The system works optimally at speeds below 80 km/h during daytime conditions, with limited nighttime and low-light functionality.
Forward Collision Alert
Using the same front-mounted radar sensors and camera system as the previous feature, the XT4s’s standard Forward Collision Alert system warns you if it detects a potential front-end collision with the vehicle ahead of you. Through audible and visual signals on the centre console, the XT4 warns you of your follow distance and even delivers tailgating alerts if you’re following a vehicle much too closely.
Automatic Emergency Braking
The XT4’s Automatic Emergency Braking feature works in tandem with the Forward Collision Alert feature to help you avoid or reduce the severity of a front-end collision. Using the same front-mounted radar sensors and cameras, the system detects your follow distance from the vehicle ahead and can automatically engage or enhance the vehicle’s brakes during an emergency situation. Similar to the Front Pedestrian Braking feature, this system works optimally at speeds below 80 km/h during daytime conditions, with limited nighttime and low-light functionality.
Driver Assistance Features
Safety Alert Seat
A feature pioneered by the Cadillac brand, Safety Alert Seat is a driver assistance technology that utilizes the left, right, or both-sides of the driver seat to send vibration pulses designed to alert the driver of the direction of a potential obstacle on the road. Owners also have the ability to switch the seat vibration to an audible beeping crash avoidance alert.
Rear Seat Reminder
As the name suggests, the XT4’s Rear Seat Reminder feature reminds you to check your rear seat before exiting your vehicle. This ingenious safety feature is activated by the opening and closing the rear doors before or during your vehicle use.
HD Rear Vision Camera
The standard HD Rear Vision Camera displays a high-resolution digital image of the area directly behind the XT4 when you shift to Reverse gear. Enjoy a crisp and clear view of the car’s rear during parking situations and use it to avoid nearby objects.
Teen Driver Monitoring
A GM-exclusive feature, Teen Driver Monitoring allows you to remain in the know when lending your XT4 to a new driver in your household. This feature encourages better driving habits and automatically enables certain safety features when a Teen Driver-designated key fob is used. Furthermore, this feature mutes the radio until the front-seat occupants fasten their seat belts and sends feedback reports directly to your smartphone about your new driver’s driving habits.
Available Safety Features
Rear Park Assist System
The 2023 Cadillac XT4’s available Rear Park Assist feature provides audible distance alerts to when nearby objects are detected behind your vehicle. Designed to assist you during challenging parking situations and to avoid low speed collisions when in Reverse gear.
Automatic Parking Assist with Braking
Parking is made a breeze thanks to the XT4’s Automatic Parking Assist with Braking. With a simple press of a button on the centre console, the system is engaged. It then prompts you to search for an adequate parallel or perpendicular parking space, and automatically then steers and brakes the XT4 into that space using limited braking. All you have to do is shift to the appropriate gear when prompted and let the vehicle do the rest.
Stay informed without needing to take your eyes off the road with the 2023 XT4’s available head-up display feature. This full-colour, reconfigurable display projects vital vehicle information onto the windshield, directly in your field of view.
