Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 than the Nissan Murano. The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan Murano.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Murano.
