Compare The Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. The Competition

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs The Competition - Which is the Best Mid-Size Luxury SUV?

When you need a luxury that puts comfort and quality driving first, you know that you can count on a new Mercedes-Benz GLC to steal the show. At our dealership in Tiffin, the Mercedes-Benz GLC is for sale and ready to show the world what it can do. But in the battle of mid-size SUVs, there are sure to be plenty of competitors. To show you just how luxurious the Mercedes-Benz GLC is, let's compare this mid-size SUV to the competition.

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. Lexus RX

Interior Design

When it comes to the quality of your SUV's interior, never settle for less than perfection. And if perfection is what you desire, the Mercedes-Benz GLC delivers with a roomy, fashionable cabin, which includes 40/20/40-split power-folding seats, underfloor storage, natural-grain woods, genuine aluminum switches, and more. With comfort, space, and beauty, the new Mercedes-Benz GLC steals the show every time.

But the Lexus RX, on the other hand, just can't compete with the interior luxury offered by its Mercedes-Benz counterpart. With a plain interior design and less convenient storage options, driving around Fremont is simply more difficult when behind the wheel of a Lexus RX.


Smart and convenient, the Mercedes-Benz GLC's tech goes above and beyond to help you accomplish your tasks around town. With a 10.25-inch touchscreen, a reconfigurable 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and more great features, you can have unmatched standard capability with the Mercedes-Benz GLC for sale near Findlay.

Driving around Findlay in a Lexus RX, however, won't be as satisfying. The Lexus RX's tech suite only comes standard with an eight-inch LCD screen. Also, the instrument cluster is much less intuitive, making it more difficult to get crucial information as you drive around Lima.

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. BMW X3

Luxury and comfort.

It's hard to compete with the Mercedes-Benz brand of luxury, and the new GLC models are proof of the carmaker's commitment to go above and beyond the competition. Not only does it offer a more-spacious backseat to keep your passengers happy, with more legroom and headroom than in the backseat of the BMW X3, but it also has more comfort amenities standard than the BMW SUV. You can expect power-adjustable, heated front seats standard on every Mercedes-Benz GLC, a feature that's listed as just optional for the BMW.

Power and performance.

Starting right out of the gate, you can look forward to a greater level of power and more engaging performance with the Mercedes-Benz GLC than the BMW X3. The GLC starts with a base level of 255 horsepower, compared to the introductory 248 horsepower for the X3, and our SUV climbs to a maximum output of 469 pulse-quickening horsepower with 479 pound-feet of torque. Top power for the BMW X3 comes out to just 382 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.

Safety features and driver's aids

Stay safe on the highways and byways around the Tiffin area with the Mercedes-Benz GLC, which gets more cutting-edge safety features as standard equipment than the BMW X3. While an automated parking system and rear cross-traffic alert are standard with every GLC, you will have to opt in for them and add them on special when you shop for the BMW X3.

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. Lincoln Nautilus

Fuel efficiency and range.

Looking to take the Mercedes-Benz GLC on long road trips or commutes? You'll get further with our SUV than the Lincoln Nautilus, thanks to a better EPA fuel economy rating and greater fuel range. The GLC gets 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined. This is in comparison to 21 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 23 mpg combined for the Nautilus. Plus, while the Lincoln SUV gets a larger fuel tank, its range pales in comparison to the Mercedes-Benz. Our SUV is equipped with a 17.4-gallon fuel tank and can go 383 miles in the city and 505 miles on the highway per fill up. But the Lincoln, with a larger, 18-gallon tank, travels just 378 miles in the city and 468 miles on the highway on a full tank.

Engine options and power.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC has more engine configurations to choose from and a higher power output than the Lincoln Nautilus as well. Take your pick from three engines for the GLC, starting at 255 horsepower and topping out at 469 horsepower. Meanwhile, the Nautilus has just two engine choices, which start lower at 250 horsepower and max out lower with 335 horsepower.

Towing and utility.

Both of these SUVs deliver the luxury our customers are looking for. But only one can also help you tow your family popup camper or trailer at the same time. While the Lincoln Nautilus has a tow rating of just 2,000 pounds, the Mercedes-Benz GLC can help you tow nearly 4,000 pounds.

Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. Cadillac XT5

Handling and responsive performance.

Mercedes-Benz vehicles are renowned for the power and graceful handling, and the GLC is true to its nature as a Mercedes-Benz model. It has greater power and a greater selection of engines than the Cadillac XT5, which offers just 235 horsepower standard, compared to 255 horsepower standard for the GLC. It also has a more-powerful engine option, but that also doesn't come close to the Mercedes-Benz in terms of power.

Safety technology and features.

More safety features to aid your drive and protect your family come as standard equipment for the Mercedes-Benz GLC. Arrive safely at your destination with help from a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, and an automated parking system, none of which are standard with the Cadillac XT5.

Optional packages and amenities.

While the Cadillac XT5 reserves many high-end amenities as options on only its top-tier models, the Mercedes-Benz GLC makes them widely available for all models. For example, with the Cadillac, you can only get ventilated seats, navigation, and a surround-view camera system on certain upper-level trims. But with the GLC, you can opt to get these features on any trim level.
