Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia K900 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Kia K900 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia K900 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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). The Kia K900 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia K900 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Kia K900 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Kia K900, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Kia K900 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia K900 has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia K900 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia K900 than that of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
