2017 Cadillac XTS vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac XTS than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Cadillac XTS 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 XTS 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). The Cadillac XTS 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 XTS will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
The Cadillac XTS 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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac XTS, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Cadillac XTS doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Cadillac XTS 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 XTS is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac XTS and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Cadillac XTS will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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