2013 Lexus LS 600h vs. 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Lexus LS 600h offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Cadillac CTS-V. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus LS 600h and the Cadillac CTS-V in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Lexus LS 600h you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Cadillac CTS-V, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Lexus LS 600h will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Cadillac CTS-V, 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 600h and the Cadillac CTS-V have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus LS 600h is a little wider than the Cadillac CTS-V, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Lexus LS 600h, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Cadillac CTS-V.

Drivetrain
The Lexus LS 600h has much less torque than the Cadillac CTS-V, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus LS 600h has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac CTS-V, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus LS 600h is significantly less powerful than the Cadillac CTS-V. 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 Lexus LS 600h and the Cadillac CTS-V. The Lexus LS 600h has significantly less cargo room than the Cadillac CTS-V, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Lexus LS 600h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS-V.
