Comparison Review

Comfort
The Cadillac XT5 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC60, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Cadillac XT5 and the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac XT5 as you will with the Volvo XC60, 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 XT5 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Volvo XC60.

Dimensions
The Cadillac XT5 is about the same width as the Volvo XC60. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac XT5, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC60.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Volvo XC60 is clearly the choice over the Cadillac XT5 for pulling heavy loads. The Cadillac XT5 has a little less horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

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 Volvo XC60.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Cadillac XT5 and the Volvo XC60. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Cadillac XT5 as you will in the Volvo XC60.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Cadillac XT5 than that of the Volvo XC60.
