2015 Cadillac CTS vs. 2014 Lexus GS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus GS 350 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 Lexus GS 350.

Convenience
The Cadillac CTS will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus GS 350, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Lexus GS 350. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Lexus GS 350.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CTS is about the same width as the Lexus GS 350. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac CTS, which is slightly longer than the Lexus GS 350.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac CTS transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has about the same turning radius as the Lexus GS 350, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Cadillac CTS has less horsepower than the Lexus GS 350, 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 Lexus GS 350. The Cadillac CTS has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 350, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Cadillac CTS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 350.
