2016 Volkswagen CC vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen CC than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen CC.

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). Based on MSRP, the Volkswagen CC is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Volkswagen CC will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
The Volkswagen CC is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. When looking at overall length, the Volkswagen CC takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
The Volkswagen CC has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Volkswagen CC is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Volkswagen CC and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Volkswagen CC has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
