2014 Volkswagen CC vs. 2015 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. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Volkswagen CC and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volkswagen CC 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). 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
Since the Volkswagen CC is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Volkswagen CC, which is slightly longer than 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
The Volkswagen CC has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

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.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Volkswagen CC is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
