Which Luxury SUV Is Right For You? 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2021 Lexus RX

The most popular Mercedes-Benz model in America is no longer a sporty sedan or stylish coupe.

With the comfort and technology you expect from a Mercedes-Benz, the 2021 GLC includes the space you need and the performance you crave -- all in one stylish package. Best of all, it's a better choice for your budget compared to segment rials like the 2021 Lexus RX. Find out for yourself in the head-to-head model comparison below!

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. Lexus RX Design

The best-selling Mercedes-Benz model features a smooth, slick and refined exterior design with 18" alloy wheels for added presence and roof rails for extra versatility. Meanwhile, the 2021 Lexus RX has a more angular, aggressive design -- and it compromises significantly on cargo space. In fact, with the rear seats folded down, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC offers 50% more maximum cargo room. That's a difference of 24 cubic feet, or two compact sedan trunks worth of space. When you want a family SUV with room for all the day's shopping and bulky strollers or suitcases, choose the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC.

Furthermore, every 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC comes standard with premium-looking and long-lasting LED exterior lighting as well as a convenient power rear liftgate. You have to upgrade to get LED headlights on the 2021 Lexus RX.

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. Lexus RX Features

With standard heated seats, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC is more comfortable on trips to the mountains or those wet, chilly mornings. You'll also find power-folding rear seats with a 40-20-40 split, so you can easily expand your cargo space as needed. In the 2021 Lexus RX, heated seats and power-folding rear seats will cost you extra as optional upgrades. What's more, it features a 50-50 rear seat split, meaning you'll have less flexibility for carrying both extra passengers and longer items at the same time.

Best of all, with its large center stack touchscreen adjacent to an all-digital gauge cluster, taking the helm of the new 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC feels like taking control of the future of transportation. All the latest features and technology are intuitive to use in the new Mercedes-Benz GLC.

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. Lexus RX Performance

Horsepower simply isn't enough to capture the performance of a modern car. For instance, the 2021 Lexus RX generates more horsepower than the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC, but we think you'll like the way our SUV performs even better. That's because the Mercedes-Benz GLC generates more standard torque, for greater quickness when leaving a stop. It features a nine-speed automatic transmission for smooth, quiet and efficient cruising. And with its lightweight design and advanced engineering, the 2021 can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in just 6.1 seconds. Despite its power advantage, the 2021 Lexus RX will take 7.7 seconds to do the same.

You also get a standard selective damping suspension on the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC, which reacts to the conditions of the road in real-time for a smoother, more-responsive drive. That's yet another feature that'll cost you extra on the 2021 Lexus RX as an option.
