2015 Porsche 911 vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz SL-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 SL-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 Porsche 911 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Dimensions
The Porsche 911 is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Porsche 911 is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz SL-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 SL-Class.

Handling
The Porsche 911 has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche 911 is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Utility
The Porsche 911 offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Porsche 911 has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
