2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2018 Dodge Challenger Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Challenger than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Challenger, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class as you will with the Dodge Challenger, 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 E-Class is somewhat more expensive than the Dodge Challenger. 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 E-Class carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Challenger.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much slimmer than the Dodge Challenger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is slightly shorter than the Dodge Challenger, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has much less torque than the Dodge Challenger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Challenger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has less seating than the Dodge Challenger, making the Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger.
