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

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RDX than in the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class and the Acura RDX.

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

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 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is somewhat more expensive than the Acura RDX. 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 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class and the Acura RDX have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is about the same width as the Acura RDX. The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is slightly shorter than the Acura RDX, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Acura RDX.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has a smaller turning radius than the Acura RDX, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class is clearly the choice over the Acura RDX for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has a lot less horsepower than the Acura RDX.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class and the Acura RDX. The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class has less cargo space than the Acura RDX, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Acura RDX.
