2016 Dodge Challenger vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger 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 Destination Charge for the Dodge Challenger is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger, 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 similar torque, the Dodge Challenger and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Utility
The Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
