2014 Audi S5 vs. 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac CTS-V than the Audi S5, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CTS-V, the Audi S5 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Audi S5 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Cadillac CTS-V, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Audi S5 is clearly a better financial choice over the Cadillac CTS-V. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi S5 and the Cadillac CTS-V have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S5 is a little narrower than the Cadillac CTS-V, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Audi S5 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac CTS-V, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Audi S5 has much less torque than the Cadillac CTS-V, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Audi S5 has about the same turning radius as the Cadillac CTS-V, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S5 is significantly less powerful than the Cadillac CTS-V. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S5 and the Cadillac CTS-V. The Audi S5 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Cadillac CTS-V.

Warranty
The Audi S5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS-V.
