Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Telluride than in the Cadillac XT4, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Kia Telluride offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT4, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XT4 as you will with the Kia Telluride, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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 XT4 is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Telluride. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Cadillac XT4 and the Kia Telluride have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT4 is much slimmer than the Kia Telluride, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Cadillac XT4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Kia Telluride.

Handling
The Cadillac XT4 has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Telluride, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Telluride is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT4 for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac XT4 has a little less horsepower than the Kia Telluride.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Cadillac XT4 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Kia Telluride.

Utility
The Cadillac XT4 has less seating than the Kia Telluride, making the Kia Telluride the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Cadillac XT4 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Telluride.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Cadillac XT4 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Telluride.
