Comparison Review

You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 as you will with the MINI MINI-Countryman, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 or the MINI MINI-Countryman, 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 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Countryman.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 is about the same width as the MINI MINI-Countryman. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, which is slightly longer than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

With somewhat higher torque, the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 has a larger turning radius than the MINI MINI-Countryman, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 has a little more horsepower than the MINI MINI-Countryman.

In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 and the MINI MINI-Countryman. The Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 has less cargo space than the MINI MINI-Countryman, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the MINI MINI-Countryman.
