Similar yet very different, Motor Trend compares two “full-size” luxury sedans: the all-new 2014 Acura RLX and the 2013 Cadillac XTS4.

Specs-wise, the 2013 Cadillac XTS4 and the newly released 2014 Acura RLX almost are twins. Each sedan is powered by a midsize, 24-valve V-6 mated to a six-speed automatic. The Acura’s wheelbase is a mere half-inch longer than the Caddy’s, while exterior dimensions are within inches of each other. (The XTS is a bit longer and wider.) Comparably equipped, both cars wear stickers just above $60K. Yet in execution and character, the Cadillac and the Acura turn out to be surprisingly different machines, each offering a decidedly different take on what a sport-luxury four-door should be. So which one best delivers? Arthur St. Antoine, Motor Trend

    Clear bias in this article against Acura. Some of it warranted, some not. The 370HP Sport Hybrid model due this fall will hopefully be much better and surprise everyone. I’m also rooting for Acura to get it right with the forthcoming TL redesign.
