    I would like to note that since CS-Cart v4.2.1 there are:
    – Responsive (adaptive) theme available with 8 built in styles and ability to change a style using Visual Editor : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2Axs6tiHao
    – Canonical URLs
    – SEO history (301 redirect for old URLs)
    – Synchronization with Madmimi & MailChimp

    And of course custom modifications of CS-Cart is cheaper than Magento, because of easier and clear Architecture.

    Also keep in mind the very powerful feature Widget mode – which allows you to embedded your store to any site: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RseUfuFdctg
