Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CT4 as you will with the Volkswagen Arteon, 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 Volkswagen Arteon. 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 Volkswagen Arteon have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

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

Performance
The Cadillac CT4 has less horsepower than the Volkswagen Arteon, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CT4 and the Volkswagen Arteon. The Cadillac CT4 has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Arteon, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
