2013 Infiniti M56 vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Infiniti M56 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Infiniti M56 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Infiniti M56, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Whether you pick the Infiniti M56 or the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Infiniti M56 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Infiniti M56 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. When looking at overall length, the Infiniti M56 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Infiniti M56 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Infiniti M56 has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Infiniti M56 is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Infiniti M56 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Infiniti M56 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 for the Infiniti M56 offers a little more coverage than the basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in terms of months/miles.
