Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 than in the Hyundai Kona EV, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Kona EV offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Kona EV, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Kona EV will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. 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 Hyundai Kona EV is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Drivetrain

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Kona EV and the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. The Hyundai Kona EV has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.
