Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Envision offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Cadillac XT4, with comparable head- and legroom. The Cadillac XT4 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Envision.

Convenience
The Buick Envision requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Cadillac XT4, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Envision will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Cadillac XT4. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Buick Envision and the Cadillac XT4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Envision is much slimmer than the Cadillac XT4, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Buick Envision takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Cadillac XT4.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Buick Envision and the Cadillac XT4 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Buick Envision has the same turning radius as the Cadillac XT4, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Cadillac XT4 is clearly the choice over the Buick Envision for pulling heavy loads. The Buick Envision has a little less horsepower than the Cadillac XT4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Envision and the Cadillac XT4. The Buick Envision has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Cadillac XT4.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Envision is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Cadillac XT4.
