2016 Hyundai Genesis vs. 2017 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.

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 Hyundai Genesis 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 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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Genesis, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Genesis has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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.
