2015 BMW 335 vs. 2016 Cadillac CTS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 335 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 BMW 335.

Convenience
The Cadillac CTS requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 335, 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 BMW 335 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 BMW 335 and the Cadillac CTS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 335 is a little narrower than the Cadillac CTS, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the BMW 335, 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 BMW 335 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac CTS.

Handling
The BMW 335 has about the same turning radius as the Cadillac CTS, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 335 has less horsepower than the Cadillac CTS, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 335 and the Cadillac CTS. The BMW 335 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 BMW 335 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS.
