2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Review

Comparison Review

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

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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 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). Based on MSRP, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. 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 and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
