Cavil obviously has the advantage in the suit department with the modern textures and padding but i don't think he'd look as impressive as reeve did in the old school suit, while i think reeve would arguably look great in the new suit.
If he put on some weight, sure.

Reeve obviously has the advantage of being 3 inches taller. But still, he's nowhere near as muscular and big as Cavill is. I can sacrifice 3 inches for a "modern gym defined look".

Don't forget that Cavill also tried on the old school suit, and that got him the role.
