Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz E-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Porsche 911, 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). Based on MSRP, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche 911. 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 911.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is about the same width as the Porsche 911. 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 911.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a larger turning radius than the Porsche 911, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has less horsepower than the Porsche 911, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche 911.

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 Porsche 911.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
