2020 Mercedes- Benz GLS vs. 2020 Acura MDX

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS has successfully combined comfortable features with off-road capability and hauling flexibility. This three-row luxury SUV also has a solid driving character, making it the ultimate ride for those who are after big SUVs that have an agile road performance.

Another stately three-row SUV that is interesting to learn about is the new 2020 Acura MDX. The spacious vehicle is almost the same as the last year’s model. Here is a comprehensive comparison to check what new features are added for this year and whether they are enough to level things up with the mighty GLS.

Design & Style

The GLS is truly a leader when it comes to large SUV styling. The aerodynamic design is bold but still elegant. It now has a longer wheelbase to accommodate more legroom and keep every ride as smooth as it can be, given that it is a bulky vehicle to begin with. It is muscular but polished with brilliant LED lighting on its exterior.

Compared to the GLS, the MDX is old and so are its design cues. It still elegantly big but the details that were introduced years ago are starting to look boring.

Technology & Safety

The digital cockpit on the GLS is one of the most-advanced infotainments in the industry. Its responses are quick and with intelligence, especially the voice-activated features. It literally studies your commands and takes notes of your habits, preferences, and new phrases. The driver aids are also of first-class quality. It has confidence-inspiring collision-avoidance tech, automatic emergency braking, and many other useful active safety features.

As for the MDX, it has an infotainment setup that looks high-tech but it is not too intuitive to use. The menu structure is confusing and it is too tasking to remember which screen has the particular settings that you need. Even the driver aids are not well-tuned. They are unreliable even during daily commutes.


Under the hood of the GLS 362-hp engine and can be boosted for up to 21 hp more with the Integrated Starter-Generator. It is fast, flexible, and offers versatile driving modes to suit the driver’s preference.

The MDX is powered by a V-6 engine to deliver up to 290 hp. It is mostly smooth to drive but downshifts can be slow especially if you are going to accelerate.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS is quite a drive. It is appropriately luxurious with its fine materials, and the innovations it is fitted with are simply superb. In terms of performance, the GLS proves that it is never a problem having a boxy body, just have an agile engine to drive it and all will be fine.
