2015 Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Dodge Challenger will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Challenger, due to its tank size and 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 Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger will cost more in transportation costs than 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
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Challenger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Challenger 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
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.
