2017 Cadillac CTS vs. 2016 Lexus IS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac CTS than the Lexus IS 350. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus IS 350.

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 IS 350, 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 IS 350, 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 IS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CTS is a little wider than the Lexus IS 350, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 IS 350.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Cadillac CTS and the Lexus IS 350 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has a larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 350, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS is somewhat more powerful than the Lexus IS 350.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CTS and the Lexus IS 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Cadillac CTS as you will in the Lexus IS 350.

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