2020 Lexus RX 350 vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE

November 26th, 2019 by

If you’re considering the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE but haven’t had a chance to test drive the new 2020 Lexus RX 350, you might want to reconsider. There’s a reason Lexus reigns supreme when it comes to Quality and Dependability. And there’s a reason Lexus was awarded “Best Luxury Brand” by Kelley Blue Book. It’s because of our excellent craftsmanship, reliable performance and unparalleled value. Read on to see why the new 2020 Lexus RX 350 is a better choice than the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE.

When it comes to standard equipment, both vehicles are reasonably well-stocked. However, the Lexus comes with a few additional convenience features without an extra charge. Satellite radio is standard in the 2020 Lexus RX 350; not so, in the Mercedes. The Lexus also comes with adaptive cruise control, driver assistance features like Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist and a healthy V6 engine. Because of the bigger standard engine, the 2020 RX 350 has more standard power than the 2020 GLE-Class SUV with 295HP vs. 255HP. And the Lexus gets slightly better gas mileage as well with an estimated combined 23 MPG vs. the Mercedes’ 22 MPG. The Lexus RX lineup also has a hybrid model that gets up to an estimated 30 combined MPGs. And the Mercedes-Benz requires the more expensive Premium Gasoline.

Both vehicles are attractive, with a spacious and comfortable cabin. Ride quality and handling have been complimented in both vehicles. And advanced safety features and technology are equally impressive. But more importantly, the 2020 Lexus RX 350 is almost $10,000 less expensive than the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE. The RX base model starts at $44,150 MSRP and the GLE base model starts at $53,700 MSRP. Furthermore, every Lexus vehicle comes with a year of complimentary maintenance. Mercedes-Benz does not offer that perk. That’s luxury AND value.
