Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Cadillac CT6 than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53. The Cadillac CT6 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.

Convenience

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 CT6 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Cadillac CT6 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.

Handling
