Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class as you will with the Porsche 718 Cayman, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Porsche 718 Cayman. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much wider than the Porsche 718 Cayman, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a larger turning radius than the Porsche 718 Cayman, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche 718 Cayman, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Mercedes-Benz E-Class as you will in the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 718 Cayman.
