An Interior You’ll Want To Be In
The Mercedes-Benz GLC seats 5 passengers cozily within its almost unbelievably luxurious cabin. Whether you’re sitting in the front or rear seats, you’ll be surrounded by high-end materials with plenty of breathing room to spare. There’s not a bad seat in the vehicle, which can’t be said for the Lexus RX which has cramped rear seats in the RXL trims.
The Mercedes-Benz GLC holds the edge over the Lexus RX in terms of cargo volume behind the front seat with the rear seats folded down. You can transport plenty of items with the available 56.3 cubic feet of cargo space, and even if you have passengers in the rear seats, you’ll find an ample 19.4 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the second-row which is also superior to the Lexus RX.
The Mercedes-Benz GLC shines with its numerous technology and interior feature offerings. Dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch display screen, HD Radio™, 2 USB ports and more all come standard. You can add unique available features such as a cabin air purification system as well as a cabin fragrance system. Look hard at the Lexus RX and you still won’t find these features anywhere.
You’ll also find available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ in the Mercedes-Benz GLC. This is a crucial feature to have in your vehicle to drive hands-free while still taking advantage of entertainment features, and almost all makes and models have adopted adding them as available upgrades. You know which vehicle doesn’t even offer it as an available feature? The 2019 Lexus RX. That’s tragic.
Additional available features for the Mercedes-Benz GLC models include a Wi-Fi hotspot, a power sunroof, satellite radio and more. To see the full list of standard and available features, test-drive the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC today at our Mercedes-Benz dealer located in Augusta, GA.
Superior Performance In Every Way
Powered by a standard 241-horsepower 4-cylinder engine, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC is ready to move on demand. In the Mercedes-AMG models, you’ll notice that your driving performance elevates to an even higher standard. In the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 SUV, you’ll find a 362-horsepower V6 engine. A step higher will take you to the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 SUV which pumps out a monstrous 469 horsepower.
The highest horsepower output on the Lexus RX is a paltry 295-horsepower powertrain. If it fails in performance, one would think that the Lexus RX would make it up with efficiency, but that’s not the case either. The 2019 RX earns an EPA-estimated 20 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway. Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 earns an EPA-estimated 22 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway.
The Mercedes-Benz GLC doesn’t sacrifice road comfort for engaging driving dynamics, unlike the 2019 RX. You’ll enjoy a smooth ride in the 2019 GLC with a suspension that automatically adjusts to road conditions.
