2016 Cadillac CTS-V vs. 2016 Jaguar XJ Review

Comparison Review

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 Jaguar XJ. The Cadillac CTS-V will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XJ.

With the Jaguar XJ 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.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac CTS-V will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jaguar XJ. 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 Jaguar XJ have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Cadillac CTS-V is much slimmer than the Jaguar XJ, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Cadillac CTS-V is slightly shorter than the Jaguar XJ, which may make it easier to park.

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 Jaguar XJ.

The Cadillac CTS-V has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Jaguar XJ, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

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

The basic warranty of the Cadillac CTS-V is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar XJ.
