Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Edge than in the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Edge and the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Edge as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Edge 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 Ford Edge is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Edge is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, 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 Ford Edge, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Edge transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Handling
The Ford Edge has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Ford Edge has a little more horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Utility
The Ford Edge 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 Ford Edge has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

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