Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon than the Cadillac CT4, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon, the Cadillac CT4 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Cadillac CT4 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Avalon, 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). Whether you pick the Cadillac CT4 or the Toyota Avalon, 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 and the Toyota Avalon have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT4 is a little narrower than the Toyota Avalon, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Cadillac CT4 is slightly shorter than the Toyota Avalon, which may make it easier to park.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CT4 is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Avalon. 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 Toyota Avalon. The Cadillac CT4 has significantly less cargo room than the Toyota Avalon, 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 Toyota Avalon.
