Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XTS than the Cadillac CTS, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XTS.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CTS as you will with the Cadillac XTS, 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 CTS or the Cadillac XTS, 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 Cadillac CTS and the Cadillac XTS have similar Destination Charges.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CTS and the Cadillac XTS. The Cadillac CTS has significantly less cargo room than the Cadillac XTS, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
