Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac CTS-V than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class. The Cadillac CTS-V will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Cadillac CTS-V, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). The Cadillac CTS-V is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-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-V will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.
