2015 Cadillac CTS vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Cadillac CTS than in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, due to the Cadillac CTS's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CTS as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Cadillac CTS will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz E-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 CTS will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CTS is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz E-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 CTS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-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 CTS and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Cadillac CTS has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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