2013 Cadillac CTS-V vs. 2014 BMW 435 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Cadillac CTS-V offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 435 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The BMW 435 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CTS-V.

Convenience
With the BMW 435 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 BMW 435, 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 BMW 435 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CTS-V is much wider than the BMW 435, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 BMW 435.

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 BMW 435.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS-V has a larger turning radius than the BMW 435, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS-V has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 435. 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 BMW 435. The Cadillac CTS-V has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 435, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Cadillac CTS-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 435.
