At a remarkable price, Mercedes-Benz style is now easier than ever for California families to enjoy everyday. It features both a sculpted, aerodynamic shape and a spacious, comfortable cabin. Of course, since it's a Mercedes-Benz, you can expect the kind of luxury, quality and innovation that rivals like Cadillac just can't deliver. We'll prove it in the side-by-side comparison below.

New Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe Profile

Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe vs. Cadillac CT5 Design

The 2021 Cadillac CT5 is a more traditional sports sedan, and it's noticeably larger than the new Mercedes-Benz CLA. By contrast, the new 2021 CLA features a sleeker look and a more compact profile. Overall, the 2021 CLA is about 10" shorter overall from front to rear bumper. That makes it easier to park streetside and gives it a nimble, tossable handling feel. Still, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe gives you almost 12 cubic feet of cargo space, just like the Cadillac CT5, so it's a capable grocery-getter as well as a stylish, sporty performer.

Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe vs. Cadillac CT5 Features

When you climb behind the wheel of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe, you quickly encounter the very best of Mercedes-Benz design and technology. Standard features include an all-video gauge cluster instead of traditional gauges for that cutting-edge feeling behind the wheel. Standard 64-color LED ambient lighting further adds a modern, stylish, customizable touch. A standard panoramic sunroof lets in more light and fresh air. None of these features come standard on the 2021 Cadillac CT5. You'll have to pay more for similar features as optional upgrades.

Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe vs. Cadillac CT5 Performance & Fuel Efficiency

Despite coming up short compared to the 2021 Cadillac CT5 in terms of horsepower, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe provides more explosive acceleration. It comes courtesy of a lightweight, sport-tuned chassis, aerodynamic shape and sophisticated dual-clutch transmission. By pre-selecting the next gear and providing rapid, seamless changes, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA offers uninterrupted power delivery as it runs through the gears. The result is a car that's 0.3 seconds quicker from 0-60 MPH, despite making less power at peak output!

Furthermore, since it gets an extra 3 MPG in the city compared to the 2021 Cadillac CT5, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe is a more efficient performer on the daily commute around town.

Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe vs. Cadillac CT5 Safety & Driver Assistance

Both the 2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe and 2021 Cadillac CT5 feature standard forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking to help you avoid accidents -- but the 2021 Mercedes-Benz CLA Coupe goes so much further. It also provides standard blind spot monitoring, especially handy for life on Southern California freeways. That's a feature that will cost you extra as an option on the Cadillac sedan. And just like General Motors' OnStar®, Mercedes-Benz Emergency Call Service can help you if you're lost or in an accident by helping you send your status and location to authorities at the simple touch of a button. You can even get your CLA Coupe with a built-in dashcam for enhanced security, something you can't get on the new Cadillac CT5.
