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

Comparison Review

Convenience
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.

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 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.

Dimensions
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.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Porsche 911 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Handling
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.

Performance
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.

Utility
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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Porsche 911 as you will in the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

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