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 E-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Camaro and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-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 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. The Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Camaro is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Camaro is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 E-Class.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Camaro is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Camaro transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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 E-Class. The Chevrolet Camaro has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz E-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 E-Class.
