The ‘smart’ feature will only be available in China.

Cadillac XT4 is preparing for a light update in China and will get a number of new features. Among them is Face ID, which allows the car to recognize the owner in person.

The company describes the new feature as «the most modern keyless access system» and notes that it will be able to work at any time of the day and in any weather.

The system uses a dual infrared camera with adaptive illumination built into the B-pillar. When the owner approaches the car, the system catches the signal from his mobile phone via Bluetooth and «wakes up»: it scans the face, then opens the doors and allows him to start the engine without a key.

The new system has been provided with additional features for security reasons: the ability to unlock the car using a fingerprint or password. It supports eight profiles, including an administrator profile that can allow access to seven more people.

Installing the system on a Cadillac XT4 will cost ¥10,000 in China, or $1,480.

In addition to Face ID, the car will receive Cadillac User Experience (CUE) (an infotainment system) with Apple CarPlay and a voice assistant that can recognize up to 214 commands. The price of the XT4 in the Chinese market ranges from ¥259,700 to ¥391,700 ($38,379 to $57,870).
