2016 BMW 535d vs. 2016 Cadillac CTS-V Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 535d offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Cadillac CTS-V with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Cadillac CTS-V will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 535d.

Convenience
With the BMW 535d you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Cadillac CTS-V, due to its larger tank size and better 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 535d 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 BMW 535d and the Cadillac CTS-V have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 535d is a little wider than the Cadillac CTS-V, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The BMW 535d is slightly shorter than the Cadillac CTS-V, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The BMW 535d has much less torque than the Cadillac CTS-V, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 535d has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac CTS-V, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 535d 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 BMW 535d and the Cadillac CTS-V. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 535d as you will in the Cadillac CTS-V.

Warranty
The BMW 535d comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS-V.
