2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class vs. 2016 Porsche Cayenne Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Porsche Cayenne.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class as you will with the Porsche Cayenne, 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). Clearly, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is a better financial choice over the Porsche Cayenne, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche Cayenne.

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

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

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

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

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

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Cayenne.
