GLA 250 4MATIC

 

If you’ve been looking to buy a new vehicle near Rancho Cordova, you may have read up on “performance” and “utility”—but what’s the difference? Here’s a brief guide to help you out from the team at Mercedes-Benz of El Dorado Hills, where you can finance a vehicle with the performance specs and utility features you need today:

  • Performance – Performance measures things like car, truck, and van engine specs—including things like horsepower, torque, and fuel economy. They’re the powertrain numbers that make your vehicle go.
  • Utility – By contrast, utility is made up of the features and specs that make your vehicle more capable of getting jobs done. This includes things like towing and payload numbers, but also the length of your truck bed, the amount of cargo space in your SUV, and special performance features like trailer towing assistance and truck bed accessories.
