Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac CT5 than the Genesis G70. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CT5, drivers may find the Genesis G70 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Cadillac CT5 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Genesis G70, 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). The Cadillac CT5 is somewhat more expensive than the Genesis G70. 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 CT5 is much higher than that for the Genesis G70.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT5 is a little wider than the Genesis G70, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac CT5, which is slightly longer than the Genesis G70.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Cadillac CT5 and the Genesis G70 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Cadillac CT5 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Genesis G70, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Cadillac CT5 has less horsepower than the Genesis G70, 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 CT5 and the Genesis G70. The Cadillac CT5 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Genesis G70.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Cadillac CT5 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis G70.
