2015 Cadillac CTS vs. 2014 Chrysler 300C Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 300C 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 300C.

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 300C, 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 300C, 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 and the Chrysler 300C have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CTS is much slimmer than the Chrysler 300C, 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 300C.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS is significantly less powerful than the Chrysler 300C. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac CTS than that of the Chrysler 300C.
