2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs 2018 Lexus LX

A spacious 7-seater, the Mercedes-Benz GLS is the largest SUV in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. Upscale, stylish, and well-equipped, the 2018 GLS has everything your family needs for long road trips and daily errands. See how the popular family vehicle stacks up against the competition with the following 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs 2018 Lexus LX comparison. 

Why pay more for a vehicle that offers you less than a more affordable option? That's exactly what you would be doing if you opt for the Lexus LX over the Mercedes-Benz GLS. Despite being nearly $15,000 more expensive, the LX has much less to offer you and your family. The GLS gives you the power of choice when it comes to what's under the hood with three engine options, while the LX only offers one. The GLS also offers better fuel economy so you can spend more time on family road trips or run more daily errands. Finally, the GLS can also fit and haul more cargo with a larger cargo area and a higher towing capacity.
