2015 Cadillac XTS vs. 2014 Chevrolet SS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XTS offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Chevrolet SS with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Cadillac XTS and the Chevrolet SS in the front seats.

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 XTS will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet SS, 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. In this case, the Cadillac XTS will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet SS.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XTS is much slimmer than the Chevrolet SS, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac XTS, which is slightly longer than the Chevrolet SS.

Drivetrain
The Cadillac XTS has much less torque than the Chevrolet SS, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac XTS is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet SS. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac XTS and the Chevrolet SS. The Cadillac XTS has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Chevrolet SS.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac XTS than that of the Chevrolet SS.
