2016 Cadillac CTS-V vs. 2016 BMW 535 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac CTS-V offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 535 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Cadillac CTS-V will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 535.

Convenience
With the BMW 535 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 535, 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 535 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CTS-V is a little narrower than the BMW 535, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 535.

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 535.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS-V has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 535, allowing you to more easily 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 535. 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 535. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Cadillac CTS-V as you will in the BMW 535.

Warranty
The Cadillac CTS-V comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 535.
