2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2014 Porsche Cayman Review

Comparison Review

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 Porsche Cayman. 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 Porsche Cayman have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche Cayman.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a smaller turning radius than the Porsche Cayman, 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 Cayman.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche Cayman, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has less cargo capacity than the Porsche Cayman, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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