Comparison Review

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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XTS as you will with the Lincoln Continental, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac XTS will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln Continental. 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 Lincoln Continental have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
The Cadillac XTS has much less torque than the Lincoln Continental, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
The Cadillac XTS has less horsepower than the Lincoln Continental, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac XTS and the Lincoln Continental. The Cadillac XTS has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lincoln Continental.

Warranty
The Cadillac XTS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lincoln Continental.
