Cadillac vs. BMW: Head to Head

2018 BMW 7 Series
12 of 13

The Winner Is …


BMW vehicles are more athletic. They have higher-end interiors filled with luxurious materials, plenty of amenities, and high-tech features. They also have high reliability scores.

If you prefer a cruiser capable of getting you from point A to point B in comfort, Cadillac’s vehicles may be more suited to your style. Some models have engine options that can compete with BMW’s sedans on power. Cadillacs also tend to be more budget-friendly.

Each brand offers unique vehicles that cannot directly compete in this head-to-head evaluation. Cadillac’s Escalade directly aligns with the Lincoln Navigator, Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, Toyota Land Cruiser, Land Rover Range Rover, and Infiniti QX80. All but the Navigator rank better in U.S. News overall ratings than the Escalade.

BMW’s i3 and i8 are electric vehicles. The i3 is a luxury small car that runs solely on electric power, unless a buyer purchases a range extender, which runs on gasoline. The i8 is a high-performance plug-in hybrid that has 15 miles of all-electric range.
