Comparison Review

Comfort
The Buick Envision offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250. The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Envision.

Convenience
The Buick Envision requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, 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). Whether you pick the Buick Envision or the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Buick Envision is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Envision is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Buick Envision takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Handling
The Buick Envision has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Buick Envision and the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
The Buick Envision has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, making the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Buick Envision has less cargo space than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Envision is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.
