2015 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class vs. 2014 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class and the Nissan 370Z in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan 370Z, 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 SLK-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 Destination Charge for the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is much higher than that for the Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is a little narrower than the Nissan 370Z, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is slightly shorter than the Nissan 370Z, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class and the Nissan 370Z do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

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

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class has less horsepower than the Nissan 370Z, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class and the Nissan 370Z. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mercedes-Benz SLK-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 SLK-Class than that of the Nissan 370Z.
