2016 Chevrolet SS vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet SS than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet SS, drivers may find the Mercedes-Benz C-Class a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

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 Chevrolet SS is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz C-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 Chevrolet SS will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet SS is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet SS, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chevrolet SS doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Performance
The Chevrolet SS has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet SS and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet SS will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet SS is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
