2016 Ford Flex vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. The Ford Flex offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Flex, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Flex will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Flex and the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Flex is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Flex, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Drivetrain
The Ford Flex has much lower torque than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Flex has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is clearly the choice over the Ford Flex for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Flex greatly out-muscles the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Utility
The Ford Flex offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Ford Flex, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Flex is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.
