2018 Porsche Panamera vs. 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Porsche Panamera you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, due to its larger tank size and better 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 Panamera 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 Porsche Panamera will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Panamera is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Porsche Panamera, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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

Handling
The Porsche Panamera 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 Panamera has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Porsche Panamera and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Porsche Panamera will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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