Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class than the Cadillac CT6, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac CT6 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Cadillac CT6 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz S-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). Based on MSRP, the Cadillac CT6 is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz S-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 CT6 and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Cadillac CT6 is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac CT6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Drivetrain
The Cadillac CT6 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Cadillac CT6 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CT6 is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CT6 and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Cadillac CT6 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Warranty
The Cadillac CT6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
