2014 Toyota Land Cruiser vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz M-Class Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz M-Class than in the Toyota Land Cruiser, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Toyota Land Cruiser and the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Land Cruiser as you will with the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, 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 Toyota Land Cruiser will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, 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. The Toyota Land Cruiser will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Land Cruiser is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, 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 Toyota Land Cruiser, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

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

Handling
The Toyota Land Cruiser has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Toyota Land Cruiser more than the Mercedes-Benz M-Class, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Toyota Land Cruiser as you will in the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Toyota Land Cruiser is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class.
