2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2015 Chevrolet Volt Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Volt you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz E-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 E-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Volt, 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 Destination Charge for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much higher than that for the Chevrolet Volt.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is about the same width as the Chevrolet Volt. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is slightly longer than the Chevrolet Volt.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Chevrolet Volt do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has about the same turning radius as the Chevrolet Volt, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a much more powerful engine than the Chevrolet Volt. 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 E-Class and the Chevrolet Volt.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than that of the Chevrolet Volt.
