Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Genesis G70 than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250. The Genesis G70 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250.

Convenience

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 Genesis G70 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250.

The Genesis G70 and the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 have similar Destination Charges.
