The biggest difference between the 2018 Kia Stinger and the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the price, but you probably expected that. What you may not have expected, however, is how favorably the Stinger compares to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class when it comes to power and performance. The $52,950 starting price tag of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is almost $20,000 more expensive than the starting price tag of the new Stinger. The most expensive MB E-Class model (E 400) is still nearly $8,000 more expensive than the top-of-the-line Kia Stinger GT2 ($49,200)!

When it comes to performance, the Stinger is the definite winner. When comparing the two highest power engine options, the Kia Stinger GT2's 365-hp engine boasts a 4.7-second 0-60 mph time, while the Mercedes-Benz E 400's 329-hp engine can only offer a 0-60 mph time of 5.3 seconds. 

Another highlight of the new Kia Stinger is its inclusion of premium features across all trim levels. While you'll have to pay extra for leather seating and even more for heated seats with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, all models of the new Stinger offer them as standard equipment.

At the end of the day, you have to ask yourself: Why pay more for less? We don't think you should, so go with the 2018 Kia Stinger over the Mercedes-Benz E-Class!
