Comfort
The BMW 540 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Cadillac CT5 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 540, drivers may find the Cadillac CT5 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.
