Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Cadillac CTS than in the Jaguar XF, due to the Cadillac CTS's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jaguar XF.

Convenience
With the Jaguar XF you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Cadillac CTS, due to its tank size and 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac CTS will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jaguar XF. 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 Jaguar XF have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CTS is much slimmer than the Jaguar XF, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac CTS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jaguar XF.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac CTS doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jaguar XF.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS has a much more powerful engine than the Jaguar XF. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Cadillac CTS is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Jaguar XF.
