Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XT4 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, with comparable head- and legroom. The Cadillac XT4 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Convenience
The Cadillac XT4 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, making it more convenient to drive.

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 XT4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Cadillac XT4 and the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Cadillac XT4 is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Cadillac XT4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Cadillac XT4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Handling
The Cadillac XT4 has a smaller turning radius than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.
