Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac CT6 than the BMW 540, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac CT6 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 540.

Convenience
The BMW 540 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Cadillac CT6, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 540 is clearly a better financial choice over the Cadillac CT6. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 540 and the Cadillac CT6 have similar Destination Charges.

The BMW 540 is about the same width as the Cadillac CT6. If you go with the BMW 540, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Cadillac CT6.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 540 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Cadillac CT6.

Handling
The BMW 540 has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac CT6, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 540 and the Cadillac CT6. The BMW 540 has less cargo capacity than the Cadillac CT6, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
