2014 Porsche Panamera vs. 2013 Cadillac CTS-V 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 Porsche Panamera than the Cadillac CTS-V. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Porsche Panamera and the Cadillac CTS-V in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Porsche Panamera 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 Porsche Panamera 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 Porsche Panamera is much higher than that for the Cadillac CTS-V.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Panamera is much wider than the Cadillac CTS-V, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Porsche Panamera, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Cadillac CTS-V.

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

Handling
The Porsche Panamera 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 Porsche Panamera 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 Porsche Panamera and the Cadillac CTS-V. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Porsche Panamera will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Cadillac CTS-V.

Warranty
The Porsche Panamera comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS-V.
