Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 than in the Genesis GV80, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Genesis GV80 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Genesis GV80, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 GV80 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350. 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 Genesis GV80 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Genesis GV80 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Genesis GV80 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Genesis GV80 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Handling
The Genesis GV80 has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Genesis GV80 greatly out-muscles the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Utility
The Genesis GV80 has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, making the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Genesis GV80 than that of the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.
