Comparison Review

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Cherokee 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 Jeep Cherokee is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Cherokee is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 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 Jeep Cherokee, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

Drivetrain
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.

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

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

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. With the Jeep Cherokee, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250.
