2017 Lexus CT 200h vs. 2018 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Lexus CT 200h and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Lexus CT 200h 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). 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.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus CT 200h is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Lexus CT 200h, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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.

Handling
The Lexus CT 200h 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 Lexus CT 200h 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
The Lexus CT 200h offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The Lexus CT 200h comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
