2017 Cadillac CTS vs. 2016 Lexus GS 450h Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus GS 450h 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 450h.

Convenience
The Lexus GS 450h requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Cadillac CTS, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac CTS will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus GS 450h. 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 GS 450h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CTS is about the same width as the Lexus GS 450h. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac CTS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus GS 450h.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac CTS transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Lexus GS 450h.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 450h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

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 450h. The Cadillac CTS has less cargo capacity than the Lexus GS 450h, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
