2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2018 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. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Volt.

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
Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much wider than the Chevrolet Volt, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Volt.

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

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a larger turning radius than the Chevrolet Volt, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver 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
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has less seating than the Chevrolet Volt, making the Chevrolet Volt the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

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.
