2015 Mercedes-Benz M-Class vs. 2013 Land Rover LR4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Land Rover LR4 than in the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Land Rover LR4 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Land Rover LR4.

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 M-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Land Rover LR4, 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. Both the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and the Land Rover LR4 have similar Destination Charges.

The Mercedes-Benz M-Class is about the same width as the Land Rover LR4. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz M-Class takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Land Rover LR4.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Mercedes-Benz M-Class doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Land Rover LR4.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz M-Class has a larger turning radius than the Land Rover LR4, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz M-Class has less seating than the Land Rover LR4, making the Land Rover LR4 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mercedes-Benz M-Class has less cargo space than the Land Rover LR4, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
