2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2014 Scion xB Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Scion xB than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, drivers may find the Scion xB a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz E-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Scion xB, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Scion xB, 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 Destination Charge for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much higher than that for the Scion xB.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much wider than the Scion xB, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Scion xB.

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 Scion xB.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a larger turning radius than the Scion xB, 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 Scion xB. 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 Scion xB, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

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