Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 than in the Lincoln Aviator, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Aviator will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450.

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 Lincoln Aviator will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Lincoln Aviator will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450.

Dimensions
Since the Lincoln Aviator is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Lincoln Aviator is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, which may make it easier to park.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lincoln Aviator and the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450. The Lincoln Aviator has less cargo space than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
