Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XTS than the Lexus GS 350. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Cadillac XTS and the Lexus GS 350 in the front seats.

Convenience
The Cadillac XTS will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus GS 350, 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). The Cadillac XTS is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus GS 350. 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 GS 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac XTS is about the same width as the Lexus GS 350. 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 GS 350.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac XTS doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus GS 350.

Handling
The Cadillac XTS has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 350, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Cadillac XTS and the Lexus GS 350.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac XTS and the Lexus GS 350. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Cadillac XTS as you will in the Lexus GS 350.

Warranty
The Cadillac XTS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GS 350.
