Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class than the Ford Mustang. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, drivers may find the Ford Mustang a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Mustang, 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). The Mercedes-Benz C-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Mustang, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 C-Class carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Mustang.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz C-Class is much slimmer than the Ford Mustang, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class is slightly shorter than the Ford Mustang, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has much less torque than the Ford Mustang, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Ford Mustang. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has significantly less cargo room than the Ford Mustang, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class than that of the Ford Mustang.
