Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Continental than the Cadillac CTS, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lincoln Continental.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CTS 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 CTS 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 CTS and the Lincoln Continental have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Cadillac CTS is much slimmer than the Lincoln Continental, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Cadillac CTS is slightly shorter than the Lincoln Continental, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Lincoln Continental, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Cadillac CTS and the Lincoln Continental.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CTS and the Lincoln Continental. The Cadillac CTS has significantly less cargo room than the Lincoln Continental, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
