2013 BMW M3 vs. 2014 Cadillac CTS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW M3 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Cadillac CTS. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CTS, the BMW M3 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Cadillac CTS you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M3, 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). The BMW M3 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Cadillac CTS, 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 BMW M3 and the Cadillac CTS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M3 is much slimmer than the Cadillac CTS, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW M3 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac CTS, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW M3 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac CTS.

Handling
The BMW M3 has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac CTS, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M3 is somewhat more powerful than the Cadillac CTS.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M3 and the Cadillac CTS. The BMW M3 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Cadillac CTS.

Warranty
The BMW M3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS.
