2016 Porsche 911 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Porsche 911, 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 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 its lower torque, the Porsche 911 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as 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 is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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 a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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