Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac CT4 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lexus IS 350. The Lexus IS 350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CT4.

Convenience
The Cadillac CT4 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus IS 350, 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 Cadillac CT4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus IS 350. 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 350.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT4 is a little narrower than the Lexus IS 350, 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 350.

Handling
The Cadillac CT4 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 350, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CT4 is significantly less powerful than the Lexus IS 350. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac CT4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus IS 350.

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 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Cadillac CT4 as you will in the Lexus IS 350.

Warranty
The Cadillac CT4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus IS 350.
