2016 Acura RDX vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RDX than in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Acura RDX and the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Acura RDX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura RDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Acura RDX and the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class have similar Destination Charges.

The Acura RDX is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Acura RDX, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Drivetrain
The Acura RDX has much lower torque than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura RDX has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
