2016 Porsche 911 vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

With the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Porsche 911, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 SLK-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 SLK-Class.

The Porsche 911 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Porsche 911, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Porsche 911 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

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

When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche 911 has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

The Porsche 911 offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Porsche 911 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.
