2015 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Genesis offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Hyundai Genesis will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Genesis 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 Hyundai Genesis 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 Hyundai Genesis and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Genesis 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 Hyundai Genesis, 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 somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Genesis transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The Hyundai Genesis has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Genesis is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Genesis and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Hyundai Genesis has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Genesis than that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
