2017 Lexus RX 350

Most drivers would expect the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE to perform above and beyond the 2017 Lexus RX 350, and they would be entirely right to do so. Harnessing superior power and an abundance of first-class technology, the new Mercedes-Benz GLE demonstrates true luxury performance in comparison to the insubstantial Lexus RX 350.

Power and Performance

Both the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE and the 2017 Lexus RX 350 are equipped with V6 engines as standard, but the Mercedes-Benz GLE draws appreciably greater power:

  • Mercedes-Benz GLE: Makes up to 302 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.
  • Lexus RX 350: Makes up to just 295 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE makes exceptional use of that power, towing up to 6,600 lbs. compared to a maximum of 3,500 lbs. with the Lexus RX 350. AGILITY CONTROL® suspension serves up precise control and irons out the road.

Interior

Unlike the 2017 Lexus RX 350, the new Mercedes-Benz GLE provides heated front seats as standard, plus available comfort amenities such as multicontour front seats with massage and a cabin-air purification system.

However, the most significant difference is evident when you compare cargo dimensions:

  • Standard Cargo Space: Up to 38.2 cubic feet with the Mercedes-Benz vs. just 18.4 cubic feet with the Lexus.
  • Maximum Cargo Volume: Up to 80.3 cubic feet with the Mercedes-Benz vs. just 56.3 cubic feet with the Lexus.

Technology

Whether monitoring for signs of fatigue on your commute from Cedar Park to Austin or connected to your iPhone, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE provides technology entirely lacking in the 2017 Lexus RX 350, including:

  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto: Sync seamless with your smartphone to bring select features and apps to your onboard systems.
  • Touchpad Controller: An innovative touchpad reads finger swipes, pinches, and even handwriting.
  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: Monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior to detect signs of drowsiness and warn you when a break is recommended.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE is a Leading Luxury Crossover SUV

The Lexus RX 350 feels like what it is: an entry-level luxury machine. In contrast, the Mercedes-Benz GLE helps redefine the segment. For financing information, further information, or to arrange a test drive, contact Mercedes-Benz of Georgetown today.
