2015 Kia K900 vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-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 Kia K900 than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Kia K900 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia K900 will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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 Kia K900 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Kia K900 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-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 Kia K900, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Kia K900 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Kia K900 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 Kia K900 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 Kia K900 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Kia K900 as you will in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia K900 than that of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
