I just bought a xs Trek x-caliber 7 2020 yesterday.
What a stunning bike great ride, really quick. Love the gearset.
I am 5'4" inside leg 74cm.. when riding it I find the bars are very low and narrow with a lot of pressure on the palms of my hands. Seat height is correct.
I feel I want lift the handlebar height and extend them forward they feel too close. I notice when riding and I peddle whilst turning sharply it kicks/pushes my foot off the pedal.
I will be taking it on long ride soon to see how I settle in with it.
My previous bike a Giant Talon3 2010 xs model 14" frame 26" wheels fitted really wheel very comfortable, loved it, rode for hours on it.
So I don't know the newer bike models, and need assistance in setting the Trek up to be comfortable ride.
Any thoughts help is appreciated.
Trips, adventures, bikes, equipment, etc.

You've bought one size too small. You should have an S not an XS. https://www.trekbikes.com/gb/en_GB/bikes/mountain-bikes/cross-country-mountain-bikes/x-caliber/x-caliber-7/p/28062/?colorCode=grey#SizingAndFitComponent
