2016 Lexus RX 350 vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lexus RX 350 than in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. The Lexus RX 350 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus RX 350, 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). The Lexus RX 350 is somewhat more expensive 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 Lexus RX 350 and the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Lexus RX 350 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. If you go with the Lexus RX 350, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Drivetrain
The Lexus RX 350 has much lower torque than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Lexus RX 350 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Lexus RX 350 will do just as well as the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Lexus RX 350 greatly out-muscles the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Lexus RX 350 and the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Lexus RX 350 as you will in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

Warranty
The Lexus RX 350 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.
