2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2016 Chrysler 300 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 300 than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 300.

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). The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chrysler 300, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chrysler 300.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is much slimmer than the Chrysler 300, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chrysler 300.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Chrysler 300.

Handling

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a much more powerful engine than the Chrysler 300. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Chrysler 300. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has significantly less cargo room than the Chrysler 300, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
