2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 vs 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman

Leading the way for the luxury coupe segment are two automakers often found at the forefront of quality vehicles. Mercedes-Benz and Porsche both produce many coupe models, which is why we’ve found two similar models and paired them in a head to head matchup. Take a look at what luxury looks like as we compare the 2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC 300 vs 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman.

Performance in these two begins with the transmission. Yes, the Cayman wins in the horsepower segment as you can see below, but the SLC 300 wins when it comes to having more gears. With a 9-speed automatic transmission, gear changes will be smoother and seamless as ever. It will also give you better top-end fuel efficiency than a vehicle with a 6-speed like that in the 2018 Cayman. Fuel efficiency is better all-around in the SLC 300 anyway.
