2014 Land Rover Range Rover vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Land Rover Range Rover offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Land Rover Range Rover and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Land Rover Range Rover as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). The Land Rover Range Rover will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Land Rover Range Rover and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Land Rover Range Rover is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Land Rover Range Rover is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Land Rover Range Rover doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Handling
The Land Rover Range Rover has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Land Rover Range Rover will do just as well as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Land Rover Range Rover has a little more horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Utility
The Land Rover Range Rover has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Land Rover Range Rover has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Warranty
