2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class vs. 2016 Toyota Land Cruiser Review

Comparison Review

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

Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Toyota Land Cruiser.

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 Toyota Land Cruiser, 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 Toyota Land Cruiser.

Since the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is much wider than the Toyota Land Cruiser, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

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

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

With the Toyota Land Cruiser, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has less seating than the Toyota Land Cruiser, making the Toyota Land Cruiser the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

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