Cadillac Smart System 

Standard across all the trims of the 2024 XT4, the Cadillac Smart System is an advanced suite of safety and driver-assistance features that keep everyone safe from all possible road hazards and contingencies. Within the Cadillac Smart System, you get four categories — Emergency Braking, Alerts, Parking Assistance and Monitoring — each with specific features designed to enhance safety and provide on-road assistance. Let’s explore these categories in detail:

Emergency Braking 

  • Front Pedestrian Braking: This safety feature helps to avoid or reduce the severity of front-end collisions with pedestrians by detecting what’s ahead of you and automatically providing hard emergency braking or enhancing the driver’s hard braking. This feature works efficiently at speeds between 8 and 80 km/h. 
  • Automatic Emergency Braking: To give you the confidence to navigate any situation, this safety feature detects the vehicle ahead to avoid collisions or reduce the seriousness of the front-end collision. Like Front Pedestrian Braking, this also provides hard braking when required. 


  • Forward Collision Alert: This function efficiently alerts you to a potential front-end collision with a vehicle ahead, empowering you to take appropriate action. It also provides a tailgating alert if a vehicle comes closer to you, ensuring you’re always one step ahead. 
  • Safety Alert Seat: The system uses left, right or both-side driver seat vibration pulses to help you identify the direction of possible crashes.
  • Rear Seat Reminder: This reminds you to look at the back seat, especially when travelling with your kids and/or pets, before leaving the SUV under certain conditions.

Parking Assistance 

  • Rear Park Assist: When you reverse the XT4 at low speeds, the Rear Park Assist detects the nearby objects behind the SUV, making parking a breeze and ensuring you avoid collisions when parking. 
  • HD Rear Vision Camera: When in reverse, it shows the area directly behind the SUV to help you park easily while avoiding collisions with nearby vehicles, pedestrians and other objects.


  • Teen Driver Monitoring: It helps encourage safe driving habits among teens by offering driving feedback to parents or instructors. 
  • Vehicle Diagnostics: It monitors the operating system to provide regular updates about the SUV’s health and performance.
