All three crossovers can easily fit in five passengers, but the Cadillac XT4 is a little more crammed when it comes to individual space with less headroom and legroom than both the RDX and QX50.

If you want to convert the space inside your vehicle to fit as much cargo as possible, all three crossovers have 60/40 split flat-folding rear seatbacks. Just like its limited room of space for passengers, though, the 2019 XT4 also can’t fit as much cargo when you compare the Acura RDX vs. Cadillac XT4.
