Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Cadillac CTS than in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, due to the Cadillac CTS's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Cadillac CTS, 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). Whether you pick the Cadillac CTS or the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CTS is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Cadillac CTS takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Cadillac CTS and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Cadillac CTS has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
