Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Passport than in the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250. The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Passport.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Passport as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, 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). Whether you pick the Honda Passport or the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, 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 Honda Passport is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Passport is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda Passport, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Honda Passport and the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Honda Passport has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Honda Passport has a little more horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Utility
The Honda Passport has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, making the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With the Honda Passport, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Passport is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.
