2017 Nissan GT-R vs. 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan GT-R than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Nissan GT-R and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan GT-R as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 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.

Dimensions
The Nissan GT-R is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Nissan GT-R is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
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.

Performance
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.

Utility
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.

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