2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class vs. 2016 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
With the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan 370Z, 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 SLK-Class is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan 370Z. 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 SLK-Class will cost more in transportation costs than 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
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class is significantly less powerful than the Nissan 370Z. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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.
