Front Seats Ranked 1999 Cadillac DeVille Sedan FWD better.
"The interior feels much nicer than the one in 350z because the Cadillac is meant for luxury while the 350z is made to appeal to those who love sports cars."
Family Car Ranked 1999 Cadillac DeVille Sedan FWD better.
"Simple. The passenger capacity. Of course the DeVille is a better family car because it has space for 5 to 6 occupants while the 350z omly has space for the driver and one passenger."

Looks/Style Ranked 2016 Nissan 370Z Base worse.

"The Genesis coupe actually has back seats, unlike the Nissan 370z."
