There’s a roar in the jungle anytime two of the top names in the luxury segment go head to head. Ever since Karl Benz developed the gasoline powered automobile in 1885, there has been plenty of competition riding the waves, trying to match up to the superior quality of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Cadillac has been making strides, but it’s a daunting task when you’re up against a brand that has the slogan “the best or nothing.” See which of these two truly is the best in our comparison between the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs 2017 Cadillac CTS.
If you’re shopping for luxury vehicles, you’re probably not overwhelmed by the cost. That being said, who wouldn’t want to save a few thousand dollars? The E 300 4MATIC® comes in at a starting MSRP of $54,650, which is about $4,500 less than the Cadillac CTS. Does that mean you’re sacrificing features? Absolutely not. It just means you have more cash to spend on wallpaper and Crocs.

So what exactly are you getting yourself into when you choose the E-Class? Innovative safety. That’s because Mercedes-Benz still sits atop the spectrum when it comes to creating industry-first safety technology. Take the ATTENTION ASSIST® feature. The first of its kind and the only brand to offer anything like it, ATTENTION ASSIST® uses a series of intelligent sensors to monitor your driving behavior. If it senses that you’re becoming too drowsy to be driving, it will give you both an audible and verbal warning to pull over or switch drivers. It can even direct you to the nearest rest area so you can take a rest or fill up on some cheap coffee you’ll regret drinking 30 minutes down the road. The CTS offers plenty of luxury, sure, but not the same kind of luxury you’ll find in the game-changer that is the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
