2013 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2014 Cadillac CTS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CTS, the Chevrolet Corvette may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Cadillac CTS requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Chevrolet Corvette will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Cadillac CTS, 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. The Chevrolet Corvette will cost more in transportation costs than the Cadillac CTS.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Cadillac CTS, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Corvette, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Cadillac CTS.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Corvette does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Cadillac CTS.

Handling
The Chevrolet Corvette has a significantly larger turning radius than the Cadillac CTS, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Cadillac CTS, making the Cadillac CTS the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Corvette will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Cadillac CTS.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Cadillac CTS.
