2016 Cadillac SRX vs. 2016 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Cadillac SRX than the Volkswagen Touareg. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Cadillac SRX and the Volkswagen Touareg.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen Touareg, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Cadillac SRX, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac SRX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Touareg. 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 SRX will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Dimensions
The Cadillac SRX is a little narrower than the Volkswagen Touareg, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac SRX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen Touareg.

Drivetrain
The Cadillac SRX has much lower torque than the Volkswagen Touareg, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Cadillac SRX has a larger turning radius than the Volkswagen Touareg, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volkswagen Touareg is clearly the choice over the Cadillac SRX for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac SRX has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac SRX and the Volkswagen Touareg. The Cadillac SRX has less cargo space than the Volkswagen Touareg, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac SRX than that of the Volkswagen Touareg.
