2015 Chevrolet Volt vs. 2015 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 Volt than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the Chevrolet Volt may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Volt you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Volt will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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 Volt carries a much lower Destination Charge 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
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Volt transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Volt and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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