2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 Lexus RC

Sitting on the top ranks of luxury mid-sized vehicles is the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. This is expected because it is a techy vehicle that is both stylish and powerful. These qualities are what most people look for in a car. The C-Class has gone through years of innovations and it is expected that this year’s version will be just as great as its predecessors.

The 2019 Lexus RC may not be as popular in the luxury sport coupe segment but it hopes to topple down the German automakers with the help of its visually appealing and comfortable features. Let us find out how it would fare against the established C-Class in this review.

Design & Style

The C-Class looks refreshed with the new design for its front and rear bumpers. The restyling also extended on the LED head and tail lights that now come standard instead of being optional. The charming exterior is only a preview for its equally- attractive cabin. The interior layout is great and only premium-grade materials were used for this year.

The RC has its unique “spindle grille” that is flanked with new headlights and the checkmark running LED lights. There are a few updates on the front fascia and the long, muscular hood gave the car a sporty appeal too.

Technology & Safety

The C-Class gets tech upgrades every year and the 2019 version is impressive, to say the least. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standard infotainment features. There are also new driver aids that are as outstanding as its audio-navigation systems.

The RC looks perfect in appearance but it miserably failed to deliver on the tech front. The touchpad interface is so confusing that the driver may get distracted by using it while on the road. There are also upgradeable features that come in hefty price tags but are not too worth it in terms of functionality.


The 255 hp engine under the hood of the C-Class elevated its handling dynamics. The engine allows quick and intuitive acceleration. It can easily turn in corners and stays agile in different road situations.

The RC has a 241-hp engine. It is a capable engine but does not work hard enough to be in the same league of top-ranking luxury cars. What is only nice about it is that it does feel pleasant to drive because of the nimble steering.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Lexus RC has the looks and the engine to be among the luxury segment for compact vehicles. While it has achieved high scores in the style department, it failed to impress through its tech features. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class has no problem looking like a pro since its tech features are so advanced. It also helped that the C-Class looks great at all angles and that it has a superb engine for noteworthy road performance.
