2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class vs. 2014 Nissan Murano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class than the Nissan Murano. The Nissan Murano will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Murano, making it more convenient to drive.

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 GLK-Class is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Murano. 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 GLK-Class will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Nissan Murano.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is about the same width as the Nissan Murano. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Murano.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Nissan Murano.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has the same turning radius as the Nissan Murano, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class will do just as well as the Nissan Murano, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has a lot less horsepower than the Nissan Murano.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class and the Nissan Murano. The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has less cargo space than the Nissan Murano, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class than that of the Nissan Murano.
