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.

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

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 Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Murano. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Nissan Murano.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 is much slimmer than the Nissan Murano, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Murano.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 has the same turning radius as the Nissan Murano, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Murano.

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

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan Murano, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 has less cargo space than the Nissan Murano, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
