2014 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class vs. 2015 Nissan GT-R Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class than the Nissan GT-R. The Nissan GT-R will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class as you will with the Nissan GT-R, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 CL-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan GT-R, 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 CL-Class carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Nissan GT-R.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class is a little narrower than the Nissan GT-R, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan GT-R.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan GT-R.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class has less horsepower than the Nissan GT-R, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class and the Nissan GT-R. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan GT-R.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class than that of the Nissan GT-R.
