2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz E-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
