2017 Porsche 911 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Porsche 911 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 Porsche 911 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 Porsche 911 is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche 911 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Porsche 911 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 Porsche 911 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The Porsche 911 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche 911 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 Porsche 911 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Porsche 911 has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Porsche 911 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
