Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 than in the Hyundai Kona EV. The Hyundai Kona EV offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.
