2015 Audi S6 vs. 2015 Cadillac XTS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XTS than the Audi S6, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac XTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S6.

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). The Audi S6 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Cadillac XTS, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 S6 and the Cadillac XTS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S6 is a little wider than the Cadillac XTS, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Audi S6 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac XTS, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi S6 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Cadillac XTS.

Handling
The Audi S6 has about the same turning radius as the Cadillac XTS, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S6 has a much more powerful engine than the Cadillac XTS. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S6 and the Cadillac XTS. The Audi S6 has significantly less cargo room than the Cadillac XTS, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi S6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac XTS.
