2014 Mercedes-Benz GL-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 GL-Class than in the Toyota Land Cruiser. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Land Cruiser, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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 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 GL-Class is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Land Cruiser. 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 GL-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Dimensions
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.

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

Handling
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.

Performance
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 more horsepower than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Utility
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.

Warranty
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.
