Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord Hybrid than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord Hybrid.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord Hybrid you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Accord Hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Honda Accord Hybrid will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

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

Handling
The Honda Accord Hybrid has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Accord Hybrid is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The Honda Accord Hybrid has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Accord Hybrid and the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Accord Hybrid is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
