Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry than the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Camry.

Convenience
With the Toyota Camry you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, due to its tank size and 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). The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Camry. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz A-Class and the Toyota Camry have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz A-Class is much slimmer than the Toyota Camry, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Camry.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Camry.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class has less horsepower than the Toyota Camry, 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 Mercedes-Benz A-Class and the Toyota Camry.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class than that of the Toyota Camry.
