Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XT5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC60, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Cadillac XT5 and the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XT5 as you will with the Volvo XC60, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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 XT5 is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC60. 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 XT5 and the Volvo XC60 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac XT5 is about the same width as the Volvo XC60. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac XT5, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Cadillac XT5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Cadillac XT5 has a larger turning radius than the Volvo XC60, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC60 is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT5 for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac XT5 has a little less horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac XT5 and the Volvo XC60.

Warranty
The Cadillac XT5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC60.
