Comparison Review

Comfort
The Audi S4 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 Audi S4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi S4 as you will with the Cadillac CTS, 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 S4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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. The Audi S4 and the Cadillac CTS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Audi S4 is about the same width as the Cadillac CTS. The Audi S4 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac CTS, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi S4 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac CTS.

Handling
The Audi S4 has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac CTS, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S4 is somewhat more powerful than the Cadillac CTS.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S4 and the Cadillac CTS. The Audi S4 has less cargo capacity than the Cadillac CTS, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Audi S4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac CTS.
