2014 Chrysler 300C 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 Chrysler 300C than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the Chrysler 300C may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chrysler 300C as you will with the Mercedes-Benz C-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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chrysler 300C 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 Chrysler 300C will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Chrysler 300C is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chrysler 300C, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Chrysler 300C doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The Chrysler 300C has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chrysler 300C has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chrysler 300C and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chrysler 300C will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chrysler 300C is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
