Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Cherokee than in the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Cherokee and the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Cherokee 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 Jeep Cherokee or the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, it's going to cost you about the same.

Dimensions
The Jeep Cherokee 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. If you go with the Jeep Cherokee, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

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

Performance
The Jeep Cherokee has a little less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Cherokee and the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250. The Jeep Cherokee has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.
