Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Cadillac CT4 than in the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, due to the Cadillac CT4's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Cadillac CT4, drivers may find the Mercedes-Benz A-Class a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Cadillac CT4 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, 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). The Cadillac CT4 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz A-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 Destination Charge for the Cadillac CT4 is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT4 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Cadillac CT4, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Handling
The Cadillac CT4 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CT4 is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac CT4 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CT4 and the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Warranty
The Cadillac CT4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
