Comparison Review

The Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the GMC Terrain, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the GMC Terrain will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250. 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 GMC Terrain is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

The GMC Terrain is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the GMC Terrain, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

The GMC Terrain has much lower torque than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

The GMC Terrain has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

The GMC Terrain has a little more horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the GMC Terrain and the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250. With the GMC Terrain, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

The basic warranty of the GMC Terrain is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.
