2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2019 Lexus NX

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA is a desirable luxury car for the budget-conscious. Yes, this compact SUV proves that it is possible to experience a reasonably-priced but premium driving experience courtesy of a renowned luxury brand. The latest GLA is one of the entertaining crossovers in its segment mainly because anyone can possibly afford to enjoy it.

The bold stance of the 2019 Lexus NX makes it a solid contender in the compact luxury crossover class. Let us check how it would fare to the endearing GLA with this comparison.

Design & Style

The GLA has businesslike and blunt proportions that give its styling a serious tone. The iconic grille and LED taillights added a taut and muscular appeal. Its confident stance is attributed to the big 18 or 19-inch wheels and the chrome and aluminum roof and bumpers accents.

The 2019 Lexus NX carried over the revamped style of the last year’s version. It made the bold design of the exterior too familiar and unimpressive.

Technology & Safety

Even at its base model, the GLA offers an array of advanced infotainment features that are truly enjoyable to have. You do not need to shell out extra money for the premium package since the standard equipment is more than sufficient. You can, however, decide to thin about having additional driver aids as most of the new features are bundled in packages.

The tech features of the NX are impressive and effective. The modern design, however, does not work as it gave the infotainment a clunky interface. The smartphone integration is also discouraging and may not sit well with tech-savvy buyers. It is great that Lexus gave the base trim a decent amount of advanced safety features. It could do well without having to pay for add-ons.

Performance

The base trim of the GLA has a 2.0-liter engine for a 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The driving experience is a mix of rugged and fun. The engine feels competent and maintains a smooth ride. Take note that the GLA has the ability to split its torque between the front and rear wheels to get the proper traction needed.

For the NX, the base model has the same 2.0-liter engine but a slightly higher hp at 235. Although the car is very comfortable to drive, its performance is standard with a disappointing outright acceleration.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Lexus NX is significantly left behind with its uninspired styling and average performance. If you are looking for a luxury vehicle that will give you more value for your hard-earned money, then get the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA. Its tech features, styling, and performance will never disappoint.
