Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XTS than the BMW M550, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW M550, drivers may find the Cadillac XTS a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Cadillac XTS requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW M550, 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). The BMW M550 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Cadillac XTS, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 M550 and the Cadillac XTS have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW M550 is about the same width as the Cadillac XTS. The BMW M550 is slightly shorter than the Cadillac XTS, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M550 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Cadillac XTS.

Handling
The BMW M550 has a larger turning radius than the Cadillac XTS, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M550 has a much more powerful engine than the Cadillac XTS. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M550 and the Cadillac XTS. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW M550 as you will in the Cadillac XTS.
