Will it be German styling and luxury, or American speed and comfort?
Both vehicles start around $39,000, making the comparison a level playing field right out of the gate.
When comparing both luxury SUVs, the Mercedes has a 2-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine that makes 250 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. For the Cadillac, that vehicle comes with a 3.6 liter V6 that makes 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque.
Nathan soon discovered both have their pros and cons. The Mercedes has less room in the trunk area while the Cadillac offers slightly more space.
The Mercedes has power and superior steering feel, but wind noise from the mirrors can be distracting. Although the Cadillac is nicely designed, some parts feel less than luxurious having been outfitted with cheap plastic components.
So which one does Nathan like best? Find out by watching the full TFLcar video above.
