Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Convenience

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 Wrangler Unlimited will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Handling
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Utility
