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

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus RX 350 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, with comparable head- and legroom. The Lexus RX 350 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus RX 350, 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). 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 larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is clearly the choice over the Lexus RX 350 for pulling heavy loads. 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. With the Lexus RX 350, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class.

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