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

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than the Cadillac CTS, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Cadillac CTS may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Cadillac CTS, making it more convenient to drive.

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 CTS is clearly a better financial choice over 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 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CTS is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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
With similar torque, the Cadillac CTS and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

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 somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Utility
The Cadillac CTS has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz E-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Cadillac CTS as you will in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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