2015 Chrysler 300C vs. 2016 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chrysler 300C and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

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). Based on MSRP, the Chrysler 300C 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 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
The Chrysler 300C has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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
The Chrysler 300C 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 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.
