Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Mustang than in the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, due to the Ford Mustang's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, the Ford Mustang may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Mustang as you will with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Ford Mustang is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. 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 Ford Mustang is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Mustang is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Ford Mustang takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Ford Mustang doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Handling
The Ford Mustang has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford Mustang has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Ford Mustang and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Mustang will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Mustang is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.
