Buying a car is an investment. That being said, you need to carefully think about the purchase that you are going to make. You should make it a point that you only get what is worth the money you will spend. Take a look at the 2018 Audi A5 and the 2018 Cadillac CTS and find out which one is better between the two. This comparison will help a lot.

Design & Style

The 2018 Audi A5 is blessed with the same elegance and ruggedness that you will find from some of its brothers from the brand. The edges define its exterior in a nice way plus it has a grille design that is just so attractive to look at. This car has also been well-tailored with a spacious cabin welcoming all your guests for a comfortable ride.

When it comes to the 2018 Cadillac CTS, you will also notice that there is much to look forward to with the beauty it exudes from the outside. Much to your dismay, though, you will not find everything pleasant in its cabin. An example of which is its lack of backseat legroom. To be fair, you may want to give it points for its entry and exit as well as its variable driving position.

Technology & Safety

For technology and safety features, you will definitely notice the many things that you will love in the 2018 Audi A5. This has been gifted with a remarkable infotainment system that is fairly easy to use. It also has controls that are easy to comprehend with. Safety features like automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning work flawlessly without any lags.

In the case of the 2018 Cadillac CTS, you will find the inclusion of the smartphone integration interesting. However, once you try it with the car's infotainment system, you will be dismayed. You will notice that the integration works sluggishly. Even the voice controls are frustrating for this car model from the brand.


When it comes to performance, you will notice that there are slight differences between these two, even with the four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine under their respective hoods. The Audi A5 yields a maximum result of 252 horsepower and 273lb-ft of torque. The 2018 Cadillac CTS, on the other hand, can reach up to 268 horsepower and 295lb-ft of torque. The CTS is hungrier for fuel though when compared to the A5.
