2014 Acura TSX vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than the Acura TSX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura TSX and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TSX as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Acura TSX is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura TSX and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura TSX is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. When looking at overall length, the Acura TSX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
The Acura TSX has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura TSX has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TSX is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Acura TSX has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz E-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Acura TSX has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
The Acura TSX comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
