Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 than in the Toyota Land Cruiser. The Toyota Land Cruiser offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Land Cruiser, making it more convenient to drive.

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 GLS 450 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Land Cruiser. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 is a little narrower than the Toyota Land Cruiser, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 has the same turning radius as the Toyota Land Cruiser, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Toyota Land Cruiser, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450. The Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 has less seating than the Toyota Land Cruiser, making the Toyota Land Cruiser the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 as you will in the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz GLS 450 than that of the Toyota Land Cruiser.
