Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi A3 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Cadillac CT4. The Cadillac CT4 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A3.

Convenience
The Cadillac CT4 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Audi A3, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Audi A3 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Cadillac CT4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A3 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Cadillac CT4.

Dimensions
The Audi A3 is about the same width as the Cadillac CT4. If you go with the Audi A3, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Cadillac CT4.

Handling
The Audi A3 has a smaller turning radius than the Cadillac CT4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A3 is significantly less powerful than the Cadillac CT4. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A3 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Cadillac CT4.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A3 and the Cadillac CT4. The Audi A3 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Cadillac CT4.

Warranty
The Audi A3 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CT4.
