Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Santa Fe than in the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Santa Fe will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250.

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 Hyundai Santa Fe, 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). The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 GLB 250 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 is much slimmer than the Hyundai Santa Fe, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Santa Fe, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

Performance
The Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 has a little more horsepower than the Hyundai Santa Fe.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
