2014 Mercedes-Benz G-Class vs. 2014 Toyota Land Cruiser Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz G-Class than in the Toyota Land Cruiser. The Mercedes-Benz G-Class will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class as you will with the Toyota Land Cruiser, 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 Mercedes-Benz G-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Land Cruiser, 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. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz G-Class is much slimmer than the Toyota Land Cruiser, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and the Toyota Land Cruiser are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Land Cruiser, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Land Cruiser is clearly the choice over the Mercedes-Benz G-Class for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Mercedes-Benz G-Class and the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Mercedes-Benz G-Class seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Land Cruiser. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Mercedes-Benz G-Class as you will in the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class than that of the Toyota Land Cruiser.
