Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CT4 as you will with the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac CT4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT4 is a little narrower than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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 Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac CT4 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Handling
The Cadillac CT4 has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CT4 has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher 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 Hybrid. The Cadillac CT4 has significantly less cargo room than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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 Hybrid.
