2016 Cadillac CTS-V vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

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

With the Mercedes-Benz E-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.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 E-Class.

Since the Cadillac CTS-V is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac CTS-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac CTS-V does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

The Cadillac CTS-V has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS-V has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CTS-V and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Cadillac CTS-V has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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