2016 BMW M5 vs. 2017 Cadillac CTS-V Review

Comparison Review

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

The BMW M5 has less horsepower than the Cadillac CTS-V, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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.

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