Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus ES 350 than the Cadillac CT5, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus ES 350, the Cadillac CT5 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.
