2017 Cadillac CTS vs. 2016 Chrysler 300 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 300 than the Cadillac CTS, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 300.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CTS as you will with the Chrysler 300, 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 Cadillac CTS will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chrysler 300, 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 Cadillac CTS carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chrysler 300.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CTS is much slimmer than the Chrysler 300, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac CTS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chrysler 300.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac CTS transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Chrysler 300.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has a smaller turning radius than the Chrysler 300, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS is somewhat more powerful than the Chrysler 300.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CTS and the Chrysler 300. The Cadillac CTS has less cargo capacity than the Chrysler 300, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Chrysler 300 offers a little more coverage in its basic warranty than the Cadillac CTS.
