Very few products have genuine staying power in any market. Even fewer have a truly legendary status in their field. When it comes to mid-size sedans, the first name that comes to mind is the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The image of the E-Class has been an enduring picture of dignified refinement for generations. The E-Class has been the undisputed champion of the mid-size luxury market for years and there is no reason to think that is about to change.

In recent years, every car manufacturer has poured resources into the mid-size market to take the E-Class down. Rivals go up and down, but the E-Class has remained the leader. Recently, the Cadillac CTS has become a popular alternative. The CTS is a highly rated car, but how does it truly compare to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class?


A car in the luxury category should ultimately be luxurious. Mercedes-Benz is no stranger to creating comfortable and luxurious cars and the E-Class demonstrates their prowess perfectly. Every interior detail is meticulous, from the stitching of the leather upholstery to the snug fit of the buttons on the radio. The E-Class does not have annoying shakes or rattles. From designer leather to the softest touch premium materials, no aspect of the E-Class was too small for Mercedes-Benz to overlook. Make no mistake about it, the Cadillac CTS also offers a comfortable interior and good build quality, but nothing competes with the E-Class in terms of comfort and quality. Professional reviewers say the Cadillac is comfortable; they say the E-Class places its driver in the lap of luxury.


A lot of car manufacturers like to tout their numbers, when they can. The Cadillac CTS produces an impressive 335hp, compared to the 329hp produced by the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. It is easy to assume that bigger is better, but Mercedes-Benz can boast about their number being smaller: the E-Class goes from zero to sixty in five (5.0) seconds compared to the CTS’ five point seven (5.7) — a decisive victory in acceleration. Those numbers aside, Mercedes-Benz can boast about the legendary handling of the E-Class; smooth yet decisive, graceful yet gripping. Every Mercedes-Benz E-Class model comes with an AMG® variant for the truly performance oriented.


One aspect truly separates the Mercedes-Benz E-Class from all of its rivals: options. No car has the broad range of available options and customization that Mercedes-Benz offers with its E-Class. The sheer number of choices is staggering. The E-Class encompasses a sedan, a coupe and a wagon, all with performance oriented AMG® variants for those so inclined. In total, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has nine (9!) variations to choose from. Compare that to the Cadillac CTS, which offers a CTS sedan and a CTS-V sedan. Every E-Class vehicle has multiple color options, multiple interior options and multiple available packages so you can truly customize your car to suit your tastes. If your local dealer doesn’t have the perfect car on their lot, they will help you order your perfect car from the Mercedes-Benz factory.


There are a number of ways to show the world you’ve arrived; the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is simply the fastest. The best mid-size sedan ever made just gets better and better, and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is just another chapter in this legendary story. Do not hesitate any further. The time to contact your local Mercedes-Benz dealer and test drive the E-Class is now.
