2014 Acura TL vs. 2014 Cadillac CTS Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Acura TL offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Cadillac CTS with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura TL.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TL as you will with the Cadillac CTS, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Acura TL is clearly a better financial choice over the Cadillac CTS. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura TL and the Cadillac CTS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TL is much wider than the Cadillac CTS, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Acura TL takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Cadillac CTS.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Acura TL doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Cadillac CTS.

Handling
The Acura TL has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac CTS, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Acura TL and the Cadillac CTS.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TL and the Cadillac CTS. The Acura TL has less cargo capacity than the Cadillac CTS, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Acura TL comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS.
