Mercedes doesn't sell an S-class sedan for a third of the price ... under a different label.

But General Motors Co. does more or less exactly that.

The Chevy Impala sedan is very closely related to the Cadillac XTS. Both are full-size sedans that share a common platform, the under-the-skin part of a car.

They both come standard with the same engine -- regardless of the badge. And the Chevy-badged version of this big sedan actually has more first row legroom, a slightly larger trunk -- and a much lower asking price.

Of course, you don't get everything that comes in the Cadillac at a Chevrolet price, such as all-wheel drive -- which is available in the XTS but not in the Impala.
