Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Nautilus than in the Cadillac XT5, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Nautilus offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac XT5, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Cadillac XT5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lincoln Nautilus, making it more convenient to drive.

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 XT5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lincoln Nautilus.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac XT5 is much slimmer than the Lincoln Nautilus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac XT5 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lincoln Nautilus.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lincoln Nautilus is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT5 for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac XT5 has a little less horsepower than the Lincoln Nautilus.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Cadillac XT5 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Lincoln Nautilus.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac XT5 and the Lincoln Nautilus. The Cadillac XT5 has less cargo space than the Lincoln Nautilus, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac XT5 than that of the Lincoln Nautilus.
