Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CT5 as you will with the Lincoln MKZ, 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). The Cadillac CT5 is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln MKZ.

The Cadillac CT5 and the Lincoln MKZ have similar Destination Charges.

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

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

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

The Cadillac CT5 has less horsepower than the Lincoln MKZ, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
