2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2016 Lexus CT 200h Review

Comparison Review

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 Lexus CT 200h, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus CT 200h, 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 and the Lexus CT 200h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is much wider than the Lexus CT 200h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus CT 200h.

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 Lexus CT 200h.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a larger turning radius than the Lexus CT 200h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus CT 200h. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has less seating than the Lexus CT 200h, making the Lexus CT 200h the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

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