Comparison Review

The Chevrolet Bolt EV offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Chevrolet Bolt EV will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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 Chevrolet Bolt EV is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz E-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 Chevrolet Bolt EV will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Since the Chevrolet Bolt EV is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Bolt EV, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Bolt EV is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

The Chevrolet Bolt EV has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The Chevrolet Bolt EV has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz E-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Bolt EV is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
