2016 BMW M5 vs. 2016 Cadillac CTS-V Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW M5 than the Cadillac CTS-V. The Cadillac CTS-V will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW M5.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M5 as you will with the Cadillac CTS-V, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 M5 is somewhat more expensive than 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 M5 and the Cadillac CTS-V have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M5 is much wider than the Cadillac CTS-V, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The BMW M5 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac CTS-V, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The BMW M5 has much less torque than the Cadillac CTS-V, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW M5 has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac CTS-V, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW M5 has less horsepower than the Cadillac CTS-V, 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 M5 and the Cadillac CTS-V. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW M5 as you will in the Cadillac CTS-V.

Warranty
The BMW M5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS-V.
