2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 Porsche 911

Among luxury mid-sized vehicles, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sits comfortably in the top ranks. It is striking whether as a coupe, sedan, or a convertible. It continues to flourish now that it has a new base engine and the effortless elegance in its cabin.

The 2019 Porsche 911 can be confusing with all its different versions. Will the versatility of the 911 rival the well-rounded character of the C-Class?

Design & Style

Most of the changes in the latest C-Class are subtle. The grille was changed to have a diamond pattern with twin ribs crossing it. LED headlights and taillights were added to brighten the exterior, and other design elements were reorganized. The fabulous styling on its cabin is amplified with the coffee-colored wood trim. It can further be enhanced with a wide-screen infotainment display.

Just like the C-Class, the 911 had a few updates to its styling since time immemorial. The last refresh was in 2017 and all other changes for the current model are only slight modifications. It looks a little wider and lower. The basic shape is retained and there are no efforts in making it look more relevant.

Technology & Safety

While the looks are pretty much the same, the tech features of the C-Class are all revamped. The infotainment system has a standard 7-inch multimedia display and optional 12.3-inch virtual gauges.  The steering wheel also has a touchpad to control the infotainment system. The C-Class leads in terms of the latest safety features. Advanced driver aids that are only optional for most rivals are standards on the C-Class.

Right off the bat, the infotainment system on the 911 is not user-friendly. Even the smartphone integration and voice controls are faulty. The navigation screen is also positioned so low that it is a little challenging to look at while driving. The infotainment slip-ups may be a minor issue to some but it does affect the safety factor. Yes, the 911 has standard driver aids but it seems like the brand is compensating for the distractions brought about by the entertainment and navigation systems.


The 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque of the C-Class are already sufficient for a great handling and smooth acceleration. The whole set-up is not demanding for everyday driving. If performance is essential, higher trims, like the C 63 S offers a V6 engine for 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque.

The 911 base models have a 3.0-liter engine for up to 370 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque. It is blisteringly fast but a few drivers would find the turbo lag a disappointment.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for a well-crafted vehicle that is proficient as an everyday car, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is a sensible option. The 2019 Porsche 911 may be fast but it is not recommended for daily driving.
