2014 Honda Crosstour vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Honda Crosstour than in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, due to the Honda Crosstour's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Honda Crosstour will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Crosstour as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-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 Honda Crosstour is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz E-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 Honda Crosstour carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Crosstour is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Crosstour takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
The Honda Crosstour has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Crosstour is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Honda Crosstour has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz E-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Honda Crosstour has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Crosstour is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
