2014 Lexus LS 460 vs. 2014 Cadillac CTS 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 Lexus LS 460 than the Cadillac CTS. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus LS 460.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus LS 460 as you will with the Cadillac CTS, 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 Lexus LS 460 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 Lexus LS 460 and the Cadillac CTS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus LS 460 is much wider than the Cadillac CTS, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Lexus LS 460, which is slightly longer than the Cadillac CTS.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Lexus LS 460 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac CTS.

Handling
The Lexus LS 460 has a smaller turning radius than the Cadillac CTS, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus LS 460 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
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Lexus LS 460 and the Cadillac CTS. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Lexus LS 460 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Cadillac CTS.
