2015 Cadillac CTS vs. 2014 Audi S4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac CTS offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Audi S4 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 Audi S4.

Convenience
With the Cadillac CTS you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Audi S4, 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). The Cadillac CTS is somewhat more expensive than the Audi S4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Cadillac CTS is much higher than that for the Audi S4.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CTS is about the same width as the Audi S4. If you go with the Cadillac CTS, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Audi S4.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac CTS doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Audi S4.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has about the same turning radius as the Audi S4, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Cadillac CTS has less horsepower than the Audi S4, 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 Cadillac CTS and the Audi S4. The Cadillac CTS has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Audi S4.

Warranty
The Cadillac CTS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi S4.
