This is not like the Mercedes-Benz GLA, which has a broad range of 221 – 382 horsepower and 258 – 354 lb.-ft. of torque. So, you’ll not only have a wide array of power to choose from depending on which trim you decide to get, but the Mercedes-Benz GLA also has the benefit of having a lower starting price than that of the Lexus NX.
