2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2016 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. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen CC.

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
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is about the same width as the Volkswagen CC. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volkswagen CC.

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 Volkswagen CC.

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.
