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.

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). Whether you pick the Kia Telluride 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 Kia Telluride is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Kia Telluride and the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.
