So remember their review saying the CT4 450T “struggled to make a mark”? Clearly that means they didn’t like the car right?
Well get this, they rate it an 8.out of 10. They trashed the 2.7T as unrefined, but in this overview they recommend it. What? They complained about it being too soft but in this overview they call it athletic and a “solid entry” in the segment?
Here’s their verdict in the overview:
“VERDICT Athletic and handsomely styled, the Cadillac CT4 is a solid entry-luxury compact car with legitimate appeal.”
This is the car they hated right?
Remember the engine they hated, they have this to say now:
“No matter which option packages you choose, do yourself a favor and spec the more powerful turbocharged 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine.”
This is rare in reviews of any product: to nitpick the product to pieces even as your overall view of the product is that it is a “solid entry-luxury” product with legit appeal?
What is this about?
Quite often C/D’s review of Cadillacs come with troll worthy negative headlines while the review reflects a much better product than the headline implies.
You’d think they thought the 450T just didn’t have what it takes for the segment. But their overview makes clear that is not the case.
