Model Comparison: 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs 2019 Lexus NX


Looking for a new luxury SUV near Columbia MD? Coming to the right place — namely, your Mercedes-Benz dealership — is the easy part. Picking the right SUV can seem like an insurmountable challenge, especially if you’re comparing a 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC with a competitor, like the 2019 Lexus NX. It’s easier than it seems. Take a deep breath, and take a much closer look.


Even though both SUVs seem similar, they have some important differences. Case in point: both come in a regular gas-powered FWD or AWD variant, each offers a performance version, and each comes as a hybrid. But the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, Mercedes-AMG® GLC variants, and Mercedes-Benz GLC 350e 4MATIC® offer a clear advantage in torque and horsepower over the comparable Lexus NX models.


If you’re taking either one seriously as an SUV, the advantage stays with the new Mercedes-Benz SUVs. Especially if you opt for 4MATIC® AWD, you’ll find something that offers smooth on-road handling but that really stands out for both utility and sport. That’s thanks to load-leveling suspension, which optimizes your height and ground clearance for off-roading, towing, and load leveling — which the Lexus SUV doesn’t offer.


Nor does it stop there. Here are a few more features and benefits you’ll find in a Mercedes-Benz GLC Class that are missing from the Lexus NX.

          3,500 pounds of towing capacity (vs 2,000 pounds in the Lexus NX)

          More cargo capacity

          Lower drag coefficient

          Active grille shutters

          Active Park Assist

          Run-flat tires

          Optional heated rear seats

          115V A/C outlet

          Shorter stopping distances


These are just a few of the reasons to buy a Mercedes-Benz GLC. You’ll find plenty more when you visit Mercedes-Benz of Sliver Spring for a test drive.
