2014 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class vs. 2014 Porsche Panamera Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Porsche Panamera than the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class, drivers may find the Porsche Panamera a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Porsche Panamera you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Panamera, 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 Panamera.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class is much slimmer than the Porsche Panamera, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Porsche Panamera.

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 Panamera.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class has a smaller turning radius than the Porsche Panamera, allowing you to more easily 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 Panamera.

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 Panamera. The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Panamera, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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