2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2014 Volkswagen CC Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen CC than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Volkswagen CC in the front seats.

Convenience
The Volkswagen CC requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Volkswagen CC, 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 Volkswagen CC.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is much slimmer than the Volkswagen CC, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen CC, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Volkswagen CC.

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

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