2016 Audi S4 vs. 2016 Cadillac CTS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi S4 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 Audi S4.

Convenience
With the Cadillac CTS you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Audi S4, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi S4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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. In this case, the Audi S4 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Cadillac CTS.

Dimensions
The Audi S4 is about the same width as the Cadillac CTS. If you go with the Audi S4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Cadillac CTS.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S4 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac CTS.

Handling
The Audi S4 has about the same turning radius as the Cadillac CTS, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Audi S4 and the Cadillac CTS.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S4 and the Cadillac CTS. The Audi S4 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 Audi S4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS.
