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 CT6 than the BMW 540. The Cadillac CT6 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 540.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CT6 as you will with the BMW 540, 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 CT6 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 540, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Cadillac CT6 and the BMW 540 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT6 is about the same width as the BMW 540. If you go with the Cadillac CT6, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 540.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac CT6 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 540.

Handling
The Cadillac CT6 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 540, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Cadillac CT6 and the BMW 540.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CT6 and the BMW 540. The Cadillac CT6 has less cargo capacity than the BMW 540, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Cadillac CT6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 540.
