2017 Chevrolet Volt vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

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 Volt 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. In this case, the Chevrolet Volt will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Volt is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Chevrolet Volt is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

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

Utility
The Chevrolet Volt offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

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