2020 Cadillac CT4 V-Series – The Best Not Quite Subcompact Sport Sedan On The Market

Cadillac says the new CT4 lineup fits squarely in the subcompact class and is aimed at the likes of the Audi A3, BMW 2-series, and Mercedes A-Class. I don’t exactly know why Cadillac decided to put the CT4 in the subcompact class because it’s far too big dimensionally to be a subcompact and a little too small to be called a compact.

Sitting at the top of the CT4 lineup is the CT4-V. The CT4-V is the result of Cadillac reimagining the entire V label throughout the product line. Where ATS-V came powered by a 464-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine, the CT4-V features a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.

2021 Chevy Trailblazer Activ – Tougher Looks, More Sport, Excellent Utility

Even though 2020 hasn’t been the best of years for many, Chevy is having a banner year with the Chevy Trailblazer CUV. The Trailblazer is all-new for the 2021 model year and is the fastest-selling new car in 2020, according to research from iSeeCars.com. Their research shows that new Trailblazers are on U.S. dealer lots for just 19 days in 2020 compared to the industry average of 96.9 days.

Chevrolet is well poised to capture this demand with the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer, and the new Trailblazer ACTIV. This isn’t the body-on-frame Trailblazer of days gone by, but instead, a responsible compact CUV that in ACTIV trim promises to help owners live their outdoor lifestyles to their fullest.
