Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250. The Hyundai Santa Fe offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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 GLB 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 GLB 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 GLB 250.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Santa Fe is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Santa Fe, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Hyundai Santa Fe transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

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

Performance
The Hyundai Santa Fe has a little more horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Utility
The Hyundai Santa Fe has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, making the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Hyundai Santa Fe has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 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 GLB 250.
