    CL9 for sure.. had both of them and I would prefer CL9 over C class blindly..

    Reasons...

    More space
    low maintenance
    more power
    more comfortable seats
    a decent interior

    lots more...

    Speaking realistically, you can't get the comfort of a Benz in an Accord.
    However, you'll be able to get the power and extra space..
    Go for the swap...

    If money is not an issue, than definitely the Merc. Top-notch engineering, Rwd, real-world luxury, safety, high-end quality & the list goes on.

    Thats what you think, The reality differs, Its about time we Pakistanis come out and around the world there far better economical and better options avalible, Toyota/Mercedece, Nokia and Sony are not the only brands left in the world.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Default @chinyoti

    What are you exactly trying to say?

    Personally, I would stick with the benz too, but the facts are the facts.

    A 2400cc engine motor will have MORE POWER then a 1800cc motor.
    And accord is much more spacious then a compact sized C Class.

    He needed power and space was his priority, so i suggested him to go for the swap as its beneficial for him and he seeks those needs.

    stick to Merc....i know the looks could be a bit boring...but you can get nice grill..body extension and crystal lights etc from Dubai or Malaysia etc.....i had a C270 .....and a Euro R.....both are good cars in their own capacity.....

    Mileage wise C class is better
    Expensive parts are myth as I found them cheaper than accord for example...full suspension was for 40 K of a C class where as for accord you will get 2nd hand in that range
    Head lights crystal ones are arnd 35K for a merc C class where as accord are a bit expensive than that

    Accord is for sure spacious but I find CL9 to be a slow car even having a 2400 CC engine.....mileage wise it is very heavy on fuel ....

    I used to be atelast 3 to 4 cars ahead in a friendly race with a colleague with my C270 and his accord Cl9

    But being a current mark X owner....it is a better car than both of them in any way compared

    Sir

    Let me give you some hints:

    Comparison of CL9 with a W203 C180 Kompressor.

    Engine Performance Accord K24 wins hands down in performance, both cars need 90 RON or higher, Mercedes demands higher octane.

    Fuel Economy Accord wins again in both 5 speed S Matic and a 6 speed manual, Hondas A/T is also smoother in shift, Accord can easily achieve 9-11km in combined driving with either transmission.

    Ride Quality Mercedes has a better ride quality even on the roughest roads.

    Steering/Handling/Braking Mercedes wins here hands down with its RWD and traction control.

    Quietness Even the base C160 is quieter then Accord even more then 24TL Cl9 with leather heated seats, Accord has purposely build the road noise to interact the driver.

    Controls and build quality W203 while inferior to W202 has a better built then Accord or even Acura.

    Interior Room Accord has more interior room.

    Weight 1395kg of Accord v W203 1500 kg

    Cargo Volume 12.2Cuft of W203 V Cl9 13 Cuft.

    Fuel Capacity, gals. 64.7 litres of CL9 v 62 litres of W203

    Accord W203

    Front Head Room, in. 37.8 38.9

    Max. Front Leg Room, in. 42.4 41.7

    Rear Head Room, in. 37.3 37.3

    Max. Rear Leg Room, in. 34.2 33

    Accord is surprisingly more stable on highway and the power-train is more smooth, the Mercedes has effortless performance and it can pull the car and overtake at any gear provided you can bear the supercharger noise which will be only evident after driving the silky smooth IVTEC K24.

    W203 has narrow rear doors and the rear view while reversing the car can be very limited at times.

    But the wood, craftsmanship and leather is of very good quality, even the top Japanese Accord cant compare with the entry level W203 and that alone can change the buyers opinion.

    Everything now depends on which car you can find in a better condition and which car you can maintain properly.

    Accord wins down here easily, parts are available and much cheaper, if you can afford you can also maintain the car from 3S.

    Mark X is an average car, dont even think about it.
