Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Subaru WRX STI than the Cadillac CT4, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Subaru WRX STI will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CT4.

Convenience
With the Cadillac CT4 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru WRX STI, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Subaru WRX STI. 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 Subaru WRX STI.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT4 is about the same width as the Subaru WRX STI. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac CT4, which is slightly longer than the Subaru WRX STI.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac CT4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Subaru WRX STI.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CT4 is significantly less powerful than the Subaru WRX STI. 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 Subaru WRX STI. The Cadillac CT4 has less cargo capacity than the Subaru WRX STI, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac CT4 than that of the Subaru WRX STI.
