2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs 2018 Cadillac CT6

Premium excitement and adrenaline await you when you choose a luxury sedan. Mercedes-Benz and Cadillac are near the top of the industry when it comes to these, and it doesn’t take an expert to know that they continually try to outdo each other. Put those friendships aside for a moment though as we compare the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs 2018 Cadillac CT6.

The performance in both of these four-wheeled machines is something extraordinary, but how do you decide which edges out the other? One area of skill for the E 300 is when it comes to transmission speeds. Since it has an extra speed (nine as compared to eight in the CT6), it gets smoother gear changes and also gets better top-end fuel efficiency. How else do they compare? Find out below!

Extras in the 2018 E 300

Perhaps you think these two models look similar. Maybe you don’t really care that much how they drive, as long as they get you from point A to point B. If you’re just looking for the luxury emblem on the front, it’s hard to go wrong with either. If you want something extra, however, the E 300 might be the way to go. It has a lot of features that are unavailable in the CT6. Some of those features include:

  • Adaptive variable suspension

  • Automatic load leveling

  • Front power headrest

  • Front power lumbar with massage

  • Cooled front seats

  • Intelligent cruise control

  • Second row side airbag
