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 Jaguar XE. The Cadillac CT5 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XE.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CT5 as you will with the Jaguar XE, 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). Whether you pick the Cadillac CT5 or the Jaguar XE, 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. In this case, the Cadillac CT5 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jaguar XE.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CT5 is much slimmer than the Jaguar XE, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Jaguar XE.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac CT5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jaguar XE.

Handling
The Cadillac CT5 has a larger turning radius than the Jaguar XE, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Cadillac CT5 has less horsepower than the Jaguar XE, 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 Jaguar XE. The Cadillac CT5 has significantly less cargo room than the Jaguar XE, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Cadillac CT5 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar XE.
