2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2016 Porsche Boxster Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, drivers may find the Porsche Boxster 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 Porsche Boxster, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche Boxster. 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 Porsche Boxster.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is about the same width as the Porsche Boxster. 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 Porsche Boxster.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche Boxster.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Boxster, 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 Porsche Boxster.

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