2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2016 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is about the same width as the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is slightly shorter than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, allowing you to more easily 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. 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 Toyota Avalon Hybrid. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has less cargo capacity than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
