2013 Cadillac CTS-V vs. 2014 Audi A5 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-V than the Audi A5. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CTS-V, drivers may find the Audi A5 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Audi A5 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Cadillac CTS-V, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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-V will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi A5, 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-V and the Audi A5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CTS-V is a little wider than the Audi A5, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac CTS-V, which is slightly longer than the Audi A5.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac CTS-V does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Audi A5.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS-V has about the same turning radius as the Audi A5, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS-V has a much more powerful engine than the Audi A5. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CTS-V and the Audi A5. The Cadillac CTS-V has less cargo capacity than the Audi A5, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Cadillac CTS-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Audi A5.
