2016 Cadillac XTS vs. 2016 Lexus GS 350 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XTS than the Lexus GS 350. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Cadillac XTS and the Lexus GS 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XTS as you will with the Lexus GS 350, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus GS 350. 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 XTS will cost more in transportation costs than the Lexus GS 350.

The Cadillac XTS is about the same width as the Lexus GS 350. 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 Lexus GS 350.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac XTS doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus GS 350.

Handling

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac XTS and the Lexus GS 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Cadillac XTS as you will in the Lexus GS 350.
