2016 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2016 Cadillac CTS

When looking for a new car to buy, chances are that you will come across the 2016 Hyundai Genesis and the 2016 Cadillac CTS since they are some of the most popular sedans out there. It should not be difficult to choose which to buy, since the statistics clearly show that the Hyundai is the better car. These are some of the facts that support this.

Design & Style

The 2016 Cadillac CTS and the 2016 Hyundai Genesis are world apart when it comes to external looks. While the Cadillac looks somewhat clunky and angular, the Hyundai has a more stylish design, and a façade that gives it more presence compared to the Cadillac.

The interior design is more or less the same. Most people find the Cadillac CTS interior to be very busy, with too many dials and instruments on the dashboard and steering wheel. The Hyundai Genesis has a more refined interior, made of more high quality materials. There’s also more space in the cabin, and amenities such as a sunroof and a high end audio system come as standard in all Hyundai Genesis base models.

Technology & Safety

Both cars have a good amount of technological and safety features, but the Hyundai has a complement of features that make it easier to use on a day to day basis. Some of the common features include air conditioning, power windows and side mirrors as well as power driver and passenger seats. However, the Hyundai Genesis also provides heated seats and optional display panels for the rear passengers.

Safety for both vehicles is provided by basic systems such as ABS and stability control. The Hyundai has more advanced safety technology such as traction control and is therefore the safer car. This is evident in the Hyundai’s higher NHTSA safety ratings.


The Cadillac CTS ships with a 2-liter 4-cylinder engine generating 268 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This is connected to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

The Hyundai Genesis, on the other hand, ships with an impressive 3.8-liter 6-cylinder engine which produces 311 horsepower as well as 293 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 RPM. This is mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox for smooth power delivery and gear changes. Though both vehicles have 8 speed gearboxes, the Hyundai’s is more advanced. The vehicle ships with paddle shifters, so you can take over the process of gear changes if you want to. This greatly enhances the driving experience in the Hyundai.

The Bottom Line

The 2016 Hyundai Genesis has a lot to offer compared to the Cadillac, no matter how you compare them. This would be the vehicle of choice for anyone who wants a vehicle which will not only serve them well, but which they will be proud of for a long time.
