2016 Cadillac ATS vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Cadillac ATS is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Cadillac ATS will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
The Cadillac ATS is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac ATS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
The Cadillac ATS has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Cadillac ATS has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac ATS is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac ATS and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The Cadillac ATS comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
