2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 vs 2020 Lexus RX 350

Serving Fort Mitchell, KY

As you explore the beautiful SUVs available in the luxury class today, your focus may be narrowed down to the Mercedes-Benz GLC and the Lexus RX. The 2020 GLC is a compact luxury crossover SUV that shows off exciting updates in its performance capabilities and features thanks to a facelift. The 2020 RX is a midsize luxury crossover SUV that continues to be part of a generation that debuted in 2015. As you get to know more about the GLC and the RX, you will see that these differences are only the tip of the iceberg.


The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC has a chiseled, muscular body, and a starlight grille boosts its overall exterior design with a single horizontal bar running through it. This grille is supported by a black air vent and skid plate sitting below it, and it is flanked by stunning headlights that have upper and lower LED light ribbons. The GLC is available with up to 20-inch wheels, integrated roof rails, a hands-free power liftgate, a panoramic sunroof, and other items. The 2020 Lexus RX, on the other hand, also has a chiseled look with more definition along the side personality lines. The grille is noticeably different. It has an hourglass-like shape, and the bolt-like headlights point directly into the center of the grille. This SUV lacks roof rails and its coupe-like profile impacts available headroom in the cabin.


The interior designs are also significantly different. The interior of the 2020 GLC SUV has an aviation-themed design, and this is characterized by large, rounded air vents in the dashboard and the rear center console. The 10.25-inch color display screen is mounted above three of these vents in the center stack, and its subtle protrusion adds definition and style. A second 12.3-inch display screen is mounted behind the steering wheel. This SUV may have dual-tone leather material, Apple CarPlay, USB ports, Android Auto, heated seats with memory, and many other features. In the RX, the dashboard design is segmented. The floating screen for the media features rises up and out of the dashboard. A metallic accent piece winds around the center stack, and this piece outlines the climate control system and the sound system. The RX may also have heated seats, a navigation system, mounted steering wheel controls, and other gear.


The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC and the 2020 Lexus RX are offered in several exciting trim levels and have several powertrain options. The GLC is available in two gas-powered engines and one hybrid version. The gas-powered engines are a standard 2.0-liter engine and a turbo 2.0-liter engine. The hybrid powertrain combines this turbo engine with a hybrid electric motor, and it produces 315 combined horsepower. The two turbo engines are connected to the 4MATIC® all-wheel-drive system. In comparison, the 2020 Lexus RX is offered with one gas powertrain across all of its related trims, and it also is available with one hybrid powertrain alternative. As is the case with the GLC, the RX is available with a front-wheel-drive or an all-wheel-drive drivetrain.
