Two popular luxury vehicles compete against one another in Scottsdale, AZ. We are here to find out how the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV compares to the 2019 Lexus RX. To do this, we are going to take the base trim of both models. This means you’ll see the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 and the 2019 Lexus RX 350. This way, we know there will only be more technology waiting for you if you decide to get a higher trim. You can immediately see the 2019 Lexus RX 350 has more horsepower than the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. However, the GLC 300 does have a bit more torque. So, if power is something you are looking for, the two vehicles are pretty similar. However, you will have the Mercedes-Benz 9G-TRONIC® transmission in the GLC 300, whereas the RX 350 only has an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The drivetrain can be a toss-up between the two. If you are looking for front wheel drive then the Lexus RX is your best bet. But if you are looking for the rear-wheel drive many luxury vehicles are equipped with, then you’ll want to check out the Mercedes-Benz GLC.
The MBUX® multimedia system provides a unique experience. With natural language voice control and a touchscreen display, this multimedia system first made an appearance here in the United States in the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class. Now, it’s back for the GLC. It brings unique AI learning capabilities and an easy-to-use interface. Unique and only available on Mercedes-Benz vehicles, this technology enhances the experience drivers have in their luxury vehicle.
