Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Land Rover Defender than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, the Land Rover Defender may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Land Rover Defender will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Land Rover Defender will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. 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 Land Rover Defender is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Dimensions
Since the Land Rover Defender is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Land Rover Defender, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Land Rover Defender doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Handling
The Land Rover Defender has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Land Rover Defender has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Land Rover Defender offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Land Rover Defender will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Warranty
The Land Rover Defender comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.
