Another difference between these two vehicles is their size. Both of these vehicles have seating for up to five, but the E-Class is a bit more spacious. The E-Class offers more front legroom, headroom, shoulder room, rear legroom and cargo space in comparison to the C-Class. This extra space also helps explain why is it a little less efficient than the C-Class.

If your main concern is efficiency, the C-Class is the perfect option, but if space is also important the E-Class is a better fit. Whichever model you choose, you will end up with a stunning Mercedes-Benz sedan.
