2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2016 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review

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 Nissan 370Z, 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 Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a little wider than the Nissan 370Z, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Nissan 370Z.

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 Nissan 370Z.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it much 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 Nissan 370Z. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan 370Z, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class than that of the Nissan 370Z.
