Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac CT4 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Nissan Maxima with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Nissan Maxima 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 Nissan Maxima, 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 Nissan Maxima, 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 Cadillac CT4 will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan Maxima.

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

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CT4 and the Nissan Maxima. The Cadillac CT4 has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan Maxima, 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 Nissan Maxima.
