2014 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class vs. 2015 Porsche 911 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 CL-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Porsche 911, 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. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class is a little wider than the Porsche 911, 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 CL-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 911.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche 911.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class has a larger turning radius than the Porsche 911, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche 911.

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 Porsche 911. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche 911.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
