2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class than in the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Land Rover Range Rover Sport 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 Sport 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 Sport is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Land Rover Range Rover Sport will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Land Rover Range Rover Sport 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. If you go with the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Handling
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport will do just as well as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Land Rover Range Rover Sport greatly out-muscles the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Land Rover Range Rover Sport and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. The Land Rover Range Rover Sport has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Warranty
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.
