Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XTS than the Audi A6, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac XTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A6.

Convenience
The Audi A6 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Cadillac XTS, 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 A6 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Cadillac XTS. 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 A6 and the Cadillac XTS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi A6 is a little wider than the Cadillac XTS, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Audi A6 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac XTS, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi A6 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac XTS.

Handling
The Audi A6 has a smaller turning radius than the Cadillac XTS, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A6 has less horsepower than the Cadillac XTS, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A6 and the Cadillac XTS. The Audi A6 has significantly less cargo room than the Cadillac XTS, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi A6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac XTS.
