2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2017 Ford Fusion Energi Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Fusion Energi than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, drivers may find the Ford Fusion Energi a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

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 Ford Fusion Energi, 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. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will cost more in transportation costs than the Ford Fusion Energi.
