2016 Nissan GT-R vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than the Nissan GT-R, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan GT-R will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Nissan GT-R, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Nissan GT-R will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Nissan GT-R is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Since the Nissan GT-R is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Nissan GT-R takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Nissan GT-R transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan GT-R has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan GT-R and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Nissan GT-R has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

The basic warranty of the Nissan GT-R is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
