Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac CT5 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Kia Stinger. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Cadillac CT5 and the Kia Stinger in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Cadillac CT5 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Stinger, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Kia Stinger, 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. The Destination Charge for the Cadillac CT5 is much higher than that for the Kia Stinger.

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

Drivetrain
The Cadillac CT5 has much less torque than the Kia Stinger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CT5 is significantly less powerful than the Kia Stinger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CT5 and the Kia Stinger. The Cadillac CT5 has significantly less cargo room than the Kia Stinger, 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 Stinger.
