2016 Volvo S80 vs. 2016 Cadillac CTS Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Volvo S80 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Cadillac CTS with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volvo S80.

Convenience
The Volvo S80 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Cadillac CTS, 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). Based on MSRP, the Volvo S80 is clearly a better financial choice over the Cadillac CTS. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Volvo S80 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Cadillac CTS.

Dimensions
The Volvo S80 is a little wider than the Cadillac CTS, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Volvo S80 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac CTS, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Volvo S80 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Cadillac CTS.

Handling
The Volvo S80 has about the same turning radius as the Cadillac CTS, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo S80 is significantly less powerful than the Cadillac CTS. 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 Volvo S80 and the Cadillac CTS. The Volvo S80 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Cadillac CTS.

Warranty
The Volvo S80 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS.
