Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Telluride than in the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250. The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Kia Telluride, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.
