Trek 3700 or the Merida Sub 40?

Hi guys,
I'm new here and am getting back to cycling after 20 years. I need a bike for maybe 8-10 km a day commute to start with and have narrowed down between these two. The Trek 3700 [which everyone knows] and the Merida sub 40.

Am posting both the links here so if someone could tell me iff the Merida really has a better gear/crank etc would it be worth going for that? The Merida is USD 50 more than the Trek but guys in India say that it matches the Trek 4300. The Trek 4300 is 120 USD more than the 3700. Is this correct?

Would be very grateful for help here.

Thanks,

Deepak

No offroading but 'city bikes' are not available in India. Only MTBs or road bikes with the inverted handlebars.

Just bought the Trek 4300 and am pretty happy. Thanks
