2014 Porsche Cayman vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Porsche Cayman as you will with the Mercedes-Benz C-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 Cayman will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz C-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 Cayman and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Porsche Cayman is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Porsche Cayman is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Porsche Cayman doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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

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

Utility
The Porsche Cayman has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz C-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Porsche Cayman will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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