2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2016 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, drivers may find the Nissan 370Z a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

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 Nissan 370Z, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan 370Z, 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much slimmer than the Nissan 370Z, 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 may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan 370Z.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan 370Z.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Nissan 370Z.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan 370Z, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan 370Z.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than that of the Nissan 370Z.
