2013 Cadillac CTS-V 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-V, 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-V may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
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.

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 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-V and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CTS-V is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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.

Drivetrain
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.

Handling
The Cadillac CTS-V has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
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.

Utility
The Cadillac CTS-V 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-V as you will in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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