Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac CT4 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lexus IS 300. The Lexus IS 300 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CT4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CT4 as you will with the Lexus IS 300, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Whether you pick the Cadillac CT4 or the Lexus IS 300, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Lexus IS 300.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT4 is a little narrower than the Lexus IS 300, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac CT4 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus IS 300.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Cadillac CT4 and the Lexus IS 300 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Cadillac CT4 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 300, making it much 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 Cadillac CT4 and the Lexus IS 300. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Cadillac CT4 as you will in the Lexus IS 300.
