Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XTS offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Lexus ES 300h. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 300h, the Cadillac XTS may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XTS as you will with the Lexus ES 300h, 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 XTS will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus ES 300h, 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 XTS and the Lexus ES 300h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac XTS is about the same width as the Lexus ES 300h. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac XTS, which is slightly longer than the Lexus ES 300h.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac XTS does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus ES 300h.

Handling
The Cadillac XTS has about the same turning radius as the Lexus ES 300h, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac XTS has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus ES 300h. 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 XTS and the Lexus ES 300h. The Cadillac XTS has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus ES 300h.

Warranty
The Cadillac XTS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus ES 300h.
