2014 Lexus CT 200h vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-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 Lexus CT 200h than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Lexus CT 200h will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Lexus CT 200h, 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). Based on MSRP, the Lexus CT 200h 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 Lexus CT 200h and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
The Lexus CT 200h has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.
