Comparison Review

Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 than in the Lexus UX 250h, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus UX 250h.

With the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus UX 250h, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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).
