Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class than the Chevrolet Camaro, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the Chevrolet Camaro may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Camaro, making it more convenient to drive.

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 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. The Chevrolet Camaro and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Camaro 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 Chevrolet Camaro, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Camaro does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Camaro has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz C-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 Chevrolet Camaro and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. The Chevrolet Camaro has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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