2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2014 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 Chrysler 300 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class as you will with the Chrysler 300, 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). The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is somewhat more expensive than the Chrysler 300. 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
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Chrysler 300.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Chrysler 300, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has less horsepower than the Chrysler 300, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class than that of the Chrysler 300.
