2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2019 Lexus RX 350

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC is a competent luxury SUV. It is technically a crossover vehicle as it fills up the gaping hole of the full-sized and mid-sized Mercedes-Benz SUV lineup. The subcompact size draws a lot of fans mainly because of its captivating looks and admirable interior.

Another appealing option for a luxury crossover SUV is the 2019 Lexus RX350. It is a simple hybrid vehicle with an impressive set of standard features. These cars look very different from each other but share the same goals of being on top of the game.

Design & Style

The GLC has lovely lines on its exterior. The gigantic Mercedes-Benz star is embraced by the delicately rounded fenders. It also has a trendy set of curves and creases to make it look like the perfect crossover on the outside. Inside the cabin is a spectacular display of lush implements. The flowing design of the trim looks classy either in wood or metallic waterfall.

The new RX350 is trying to let go of its conservative styling. The move, however, is not flawlessly executed making the changes look awkward. The egg-like shape was traded for an angular design. The intricate details gave it an angry jet-like aura. It is unique but it can do better with a subtler styling.

Technology & Safety

The basic setup for the GLC’s infotainment system is above average. This means that an upgrade is a nice touch but not necessary. The navigation system is clear, precise, and fast. The audio system sounds great. What more can you ask for? As for its safety aids, you will marvel at how world-class the quality of the adaptive cruise control is.

There is a generous set of standard infotainment and safety features on the RX350. The latest Lexus Enform App has useful apps both for navigation and entertainment. The basic safety tech is also fine with the rearview camera, automatic braking, and forward collision warning to name a few.


An impressive 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque are guaranteed for the GLC’s base model. It demonstrates ample power even at highway speeds. The handling is impressive given that it is an SUV. It stays flat through quick turns making driving along with a twisty path fun but still relatively safe.

The V6 engine of the RX50 can give up to 295 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. This reassuring power allows accurate steering with minimal effort. The ride feels stable and secure when driving along mountain roads.

The Bottom Line

Between the two vehicles, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC is a practical choice. The base model is already commendable with the available technology and impressive road performance. The 2019 Lexus RX50 displays a great potential with its performance but everything was pulled down by the lack of creativity in the design and infotainment.
