2013 Nissan GT-R vs. 2013 Cadillac CTS-V Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac CTS-V than the Nissan GT-R, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan GT-R will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CTS-V.

Convenience
With the Nissan GT-R 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 Nissan GT-R 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 Destination Charge for the Nissan GT-R is much higher than that for the Cadillac CTS-V.

Dimensions
The Nissan GT-R is about the same width as the Cadillac CTS-V. The Nissan GT-R is slightly shorter than the Cadillac CTS-V, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Nissan GT-R doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Cadillac CTS-V.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Nissan GT-R and the Cadillac CTS-V.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan GT-R and the Cadillac CTS-V. The Nissan GT-R has less cargo capacity than the Cadillac CTS-V, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan GT-R is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Cadillac CTS-V.
