2014 Cadillac CTS vs. 2014 Volvo S80 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Cadillac CTS offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Volvo S80 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80.

Convenience
The Cadillac CTS will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo S80, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volvo S80, 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 Volvo S80 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CTS is much slimmer than the Volvo S80, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Volvo S80.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac CTS doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo S80.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has a smaller turning radius than the Volvo S80, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Cadillac CTS has less horsepower than the Volvo S80, 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 S80. The Cadillac CTS has less cargo capacity than the Volvo S80, 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 Volvo S80.
