Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Pilot than in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Pilot and the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda Pilot, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Honda Pilot 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. In this case, the Honda Pilot will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Pilot 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 Honda Pilot, 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 Honda Pilot has much lower torque than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda Pilot 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

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Honda Pilot more than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Honda Pilot, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

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