Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac CT5 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Kia Cadenza with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CT5.

Convenience
The Cadillac CT5 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia Cadenza, 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 Kia Cadenza. 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 Kia Cadenza.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT5 is about the same width as the Kia Cadenza. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac CT5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Kia Cadenza.

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

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

Performance
The Cadillac CT5 has less horsepower than the Kia Cadenza, 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 Kia Cadenza. The Cadillac CT5 has significantly less cargo room than the Kia Cadenza, 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 Kia Cadenza.
