2014 Cadillac CTS vs. 2014 Lexus CT 200h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac CTS offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Lexus CT 200h with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CTS, drivers may find the Lexus CT 200h a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CTS as you will with the Lexus CT 200h, 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 Lexus CT 200h, 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 Lexus CT 200h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CTS is much wider than the Lexus CT 200h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Lexus CT 200h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac CTS does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus CT 200h.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has a larger turning radius than the Lexus CT 200h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus CT 200h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Cadillac CTS has less seating than the Lexus CT 200h, making the Lexus CT 200h the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The Cadillac CTS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus CT 200h.
