2015 Cadillac CTS vs. 2015 Volvo S60 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 Volvo S60. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CTS as you will with the Volvo S60, 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 Volvo S60, 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Volvo S60.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CTS is a little narrower than the Volvo S60, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Volvo S60.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Cadillac CTS and the Volvo S60 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has about the same turning radius as the Volvo S60, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Cadillac CTS has less horsepower than the Volvo S60, 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 Volvo S60. The Cadillac CTS has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Volvo S60.

Warranty
The Cadillac CTS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo S60.
