2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan vs 2018 Cadillac CTS Sedan

2018 E-Class Sedan in Silver vs 2018 Cadillac CTS Sedan in Black

Although it may be tempting to buy from one of the cheaper luxury brands, Mercedes-Benz vehicles offer greater value for not much more than low-end luxury brands. See how the E 300 Sedan compares with the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan vs 2018 Cadillac CTS Sedan comparison chart below.

Although the E 300 Sedan is about $6,000 more expensive than the CTS Standard Sedan, this comparison is a clear example of "getting what you paid for". Both sedans sport a 2.0L Turbo engine, but the E 300 Sedan's advanced transmission delivers faster shift times. The CTS Standard does generate slightly higher output, but the E 300's 241 horsepower is plenty thrilling. The most striking difference between the two models is the number of standard safety features--it's clear that E 300 Sedan drivers will be better protected behind the wheel.
