2014 Cadillac CTS vs. 2014 Lincoln MKT Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln MKT than the Cadillac CTS, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Cadillac CTS and the Lincoln MKT in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CTS as you will with the Lincoln MKT, 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln MKT. 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 Lincoln MKT have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CTS is much slimmer than the Lincoln MKT, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Cadillac CTS, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Lincoln MKT.

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

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lincoln MKT, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS is somewhat more powerful than the Lincoln MKT.

Utility
The Cadillac CTS has less seating than the Lincoln MKT, making the Lincoln MKT the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Cadillac CTS has significantly less cargo room than the Lincoln MKT, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Cadillac CTS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln MKT.
