Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz E-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35, 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 E-Class is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35. 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 E-Class and the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35, 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 E-Class and the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz AMG CLA 35.
