Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XTS than the BMW 540, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 540, drivers may find the Cadillac XTS a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 540 as you will with the Cadillac XTS, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). The BMW 540 is somewhat more expensive 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 BMW 540 and the Cadillac XTS have similar Destination Charges.

The BMW 540 is about the same width as the Cadillac XTS. The BMW 540 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac XTS, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 540 is somewhat more powerful than the Cadillac XTS.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 540 and the Cadillac XTS. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 540 as you will in the Cadillac XTS.

The BMW 540 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Cadillac XTS.
