Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid than the Cadillac CT4, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Cadillac CT4 and the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid in the front seats.

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 Cadillac CT4 is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Cadillac CT4 is much higher than that for the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CT4 is much slimmer than the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Cadillac CT4 is slightly shorter than the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Cadillac CT4 has about the same turning radius as the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CT4 has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac CT4 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CT4 and the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid. The Cadillac CT4 has significantly less cargo room than the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac CT4 than that of the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.
