Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Audi A4 than in the Cadillac CT5, due to the Audi A4's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Cadillac CT5 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi A4 as you will with the Cadillac CT5, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 A4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Cadillac CT5. 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 A4 and the Cadillac CT5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A4 is a little narrower than the Cadillac CT5, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Audi A4 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac CT5, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Cadillac CT5.

Handling
The Audi A4 has a smaller turning radius than the Cadillac CT5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A4 is significantly less powerful than the Cadillac CT5. 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 Audi A4 and the Cadillac CT5. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Audi A4 as you will in the Cadillac CT5.

Warranty
The Audi A4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CT5.
