Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300, the Ford Mustang may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Ford Mustang, 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 Ford Mustang is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300. 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 SLC 300.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Mustang is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Mustang, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Mustang transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300.

Handling
The Ford Mustang has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Mustang has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Ford Mustang offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Ford Mustang has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Mustang is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz SLC 300.
