2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2017 Lexus RX

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC combines the sophistication of the luxury class with excellent fuel economy so you don’t continuously pay for outstanding performance. Next to other competitors like the 2017 Lexus RX, it’s a dynamic crossover that offers you a first-class ride whether you’re behind the wheel or in the backseat. Available now at Mercedes-Benz of Palm Springs, find out how the new GLC has the upper hand over the competition before you meet it in person at our showroom!


Both the new Mercedes-Benz GLC and Lexus RX will give you sporty yet refined driving compared to vehicles in lower classes, but the new GLC brings you better efficiency and a more dynamic ride than the Lexus RX can offer.

  • Fuel Economy: Go further for less when you get up to 28 mpg highway and 22 mpg city from the turbocharged 4-cylinder of the GLC, but you’ll only get 27 mpg highway and 20 mpg city from the Lexus RX.

  • Suspension: It’s not just horsepower that makes driving fun. The Mercedes-Benz Automatic Adaptive Variable Suspension adjusts according to road conditions and your own steering input to even out the cabin experience as well as help you get the engaging drive that makes all the difference. The Lexus RX does not come standard with a comparable system.


The world is at your fingertips inside of the new Mercedes-Benz GLC. While both vehicles are equipped with a touchscreen infotainment center and optional leather interior, the Lexus RX offers less amenities to enhance your time on the road.

  • Only the GLC will give those in the rear access to amenities up front like a rear armrest with cargo storage.

  • The new GLC gives you 19.4 cu. ft. of trunk space while the Lexus RX can only give you 18 cu. ft. behind the rear seats.

  • Standard emory settings on the front seat let you switch drivers frequently easier, but this is only an available upgrade on the Lexus RX.
