The 2018 Cadillac CTS has many of the same features as the 2018 Volvo S90, including lavish interior and exceptional handling. However, Volvo is a step ahead with a roomy cabin and a more refined base engine setup. Which one of the two should you pick as your next car?

Design & Style

With a driver-focused personality, the 2018 Cadillac CTS is a typical 5-seater with spacious front seats and compromised rear seats, offering lesser legroom compared to other rivals. The cabin design is quite upscale with first-grade materials throughout the interior, although there are some trim pieces that depreciate the opulent feel. The leatherette and the carpet feel quite shabby, and some surfaces are too reflective or shiny.

For the 2018 Volvo S90, the 5-seater comes with inviting front and back seats. In comparison to other midsize sedans, the amount of legroom and headroom is adequate enough to accommodate three people at the back. The cabin exudes a high-end sophisticated ambiance with materials such as soft leather seats and birch wood inlays. A lot of natural light enters the car through the standard panoramic moonroof.

Technology & Safety

Technology and safety are vital parameters of any vehicle. The 2018 Cadillac CTS comes standard with an 8-inch touch screen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, Bluetooth and dual-zone automatic climate control. You may find it difficult to browse through the menu of the infotainment system. For safety, you only have parking sensors and a rearview camera.

The 2018 Volvo S90 is a winner in this aspect with a wealth of technology features including a ten-speaker audio system, 9-inch touch-screen display, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, satellite radio, Bluetooth and voice-activated command. The infotainment system is quite easy to operate with its responsive and vivid touch screen.  With S90, you have an excellent set of safety features, including a rearview camera, parking sensors, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and Pilot Assist semiautonomous driving system.


The base 2018 CTS comes with a 268-HP 2-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces enough power to move the vehicle around. Optional engine includes a 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces around 335 HP. On the other hand, there are multiple engine options with the Volvo S90, ranging from the base 250-HP turbocharged engine to a 316 HP T6 model and the 400 HP hybrid T8.

The Bottom Line

The Volvo S90 is a top ranking German sedan with all the attributes of an appealing car model with a set of standard desirable features and luxurious cabin. On the counterpart, features are limited for CTS, although Cadillac has strong brand value in the market.
