2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, drivers may find the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

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