2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2019 Lexus UX 200

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA may be the smallest SUV from its automakers but it definitely is a tough one to beat in the luxury crossover vehicles segment. This is not surprising since the GLA is among the first subcompact SUVs that were introduced in America. Many people are already familiar with its glamorous exterior and appealing characteristics.

The 2019 Lexus UX 200 is a bit late in the small crossover SUV niche but it does offer a dynamic personality. It is a fierce choice for those who are looking for an entry point crossover that is still a pleasant ride to have.

Design & Style

The GLA is proportional and carried over plenty of styling cues from its predecessor. It has aged well and wears the three-pointed star badge with confidence. The black fender flares enhanced its commanding presence, especially with the chrome and aluminum accents that added a new level of sophistication to its exterior.

The UX 200 relies on its dramatic styling to make its presence felt. It has a big spindle grille, finned taillights, and striking lightning-bolt LED headlights. Although it looks daring, most people find the design cues too busy.

Technology & Safety

The infotainment screen that is perched on the GLA’s dashboard is simply innovative. Connectivity is seamless using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration and *Bluetooth®. The quality of both calls and audio streaming is magnificent, thus making the audio setup the best companion for long rides.

The UX 200 tried its best to have a better infotainment but it still was not able to come up a technology that can match the modern touches of the GLA’s. It is not at all impressive and is cumbersome to use aside from being sluggish.


The 208 hp engine on the GLA’s hood sounds like a meaningful muscle that can keep up with any driving style. The power train does perform exceptionally well and can manage to accelerate fast when needed. The handling is both sharp and athletic.

Another disappointing feature of the UX 200 is its 169-hp engine. It is playful and suited for city driving but do not expect for it to deliver a dynamic performance. The acceleration, most especially, feels lethargic and uninspiring.

The Bottom Line

If you are expecting for a plush ride that looks every inch a luxury car from the outside down to its cabin, then the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA is the best choice. The luxurious features are very obvious even with just a glance. The in-car technology looks futuristic but remains simple to operate. More importantly, the new GLA delivers a noteworthy performance on the road that is impossible to match by the 2019 Lexus UX 200.
