2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2017 Toyota Prius v Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Prius v with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Toyota Prius v will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Prius v, 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 Toyota Prius v, 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 Toyota Prius v.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much wider than the Toyota Prius v, 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 Toyota Prius v.

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 Toyota Prius v.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius v. 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 Toyota Prius v, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has less cargo capacity than the Toyota Prius v, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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