Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Santa Fe as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLA 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 Hyundai Santa Fe or the Mercedes-Benz GLA 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 Hyundai Santa Fe is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Santa Fe is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Hyundai Santa Fe, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Hyundai Santa Fe has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Santa Fe than that of the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.
