2016 Cadillac CT6 vs 2016 Audi A8
Cadillac pulled out all the stops for the 2016 model year, revamping their V-series lineup and, perhaps more importantly, introducing their brand-new flagship sedan, complete with new naming structure that will eventually be followed by every vehicle on the lineup. We wanted to compare that new flagship to another luxury performance brand’s flagship to see which was superior, and we were excited to see what we found when we compared the 2016 Cadillac CT6 vs 2016 Audi A8.
Contrary to popular belief flagship vehicle might not necessarily a brand’s most popular or well-known vehicle. Generally, the flagship is just the biggest vehicle on the lineup, and is often packed full of the best specs, features and other goodies that the brand has to offer.
Advantages of the 2016 Cadillac CT6
Aside from being exciting and new, the Cadillac CT6 has some other hefty advantages as well. Most notably in terms of power, where the engine alone blows the Audi A8 out of the water. The CT6’s 3.0L twin-turbo V6 delivers an astounding 404 horsepower, while the Audi A8’s 3.0L V6 only delivers 333 horsepower. But to make matters worse for the Audi sedan, it also weights nearly 400 lbs. more than the brand-new Cadillac CT6, which makes for an even bigger deficit.
Furthermore, the CT6 offers a larger trunk. In fact, its trunk can accommodate a whole extra cubic foot, which might not sound like much but when you’re packing for a road trip it will certainly come in handy. If the Audi A8 can take any solace from anything, it might be that it managed to tie the new Cadillac flagship in city fuel efficiency, rather than getting beat again.
The brand-new 2016 Cadillac CT6 is slated to arrive sometime in March, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled on social media and the Don Wheaton website for more information about its arrival, because this is sure to be a hot one.
