Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XT4 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, with comparable head- and legroom. The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport 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 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac XT4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT4 is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot.

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