Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Camaro than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53. The Chevrolet Camaro will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Camaro as you will with the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53, 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 Chevrolet Camaro is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Camaro is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.

Since the Chevrolet Camaro is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Camaro takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Camaro and the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53. The Chevrolet Camaro has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Camaro is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.
