2014 Lexus LX 570 vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class than in the Lexus LX 570, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Lexus LX 570 and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus LX 570, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Lexus LX 570 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GL-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 Lexus LX 570 and the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus LX 570 is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Lexus LX 570 is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Lexus LX 570 has much lower torque than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
With the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Lexus LX 570. The Lexus LX 570 has a little less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Utility
The Lexus LX 570 offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Lexus LX 570 has less cargo space than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Lexus LX 570 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.
