2016 Cadillac CTS-V vs. 2016 Lexus LS 460 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus LS 460 than the Cadillac CTS-V, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac CTS-V will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus LS 460.

Convenience
With the Lexus LS 460 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus LS 460. 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 Lexus LS 460 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CTS-V is much slimmer than the Lexus LS 460, 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 Lexus LS 460, which may make it easier to park.

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 Lexus LS 460.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS-V has a larger turning radius than the Lexus LS 460, 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 Lexus LS 460. 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 Lexus LS 460. The Cadillac CTS-V has significantly less cargo room than the Lexus LS 460, 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 Lexus LS 460.
