2020 Acura RDX vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC

Serving Memphis, TN

If you’re looking for a new family vehicle, be sure to put the 2020 Acura RDX at the top of your list. Very few two-row crossovers can match what the new RDX brings to the table. It’s spacious, luxurious, and fun to drive. Let’s find out how the 2020 Acura RDX compares to the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC.


Both of these crossover SUVs come standard with a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. However, there’s more muscle under the hood of the 2020 Acura RDX. Its engine develops a potent 272 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. By comparison, Mercedes-Benz rates the GLC’s engine to produce 255 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. Whether you’re accelerating from a traffic light or merging onto the freeway, you’ll grow to appreciate the RDX’s extra power. Furthermore, only the RDX offers Acura’s Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system. Not only does this torque-vectoring give you complete confidence in bad weather, but it also helps promote exceptionally responsive handling.


While the new 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC is a good-looking SUV, it does not turn heads like the new RDX. Acura designed the RDX to dominate the street. It features many eye-catching styling cues. While the GLC comes standard with conventional LED headlights, the RDX features Jewel Eye LED lights. A Diamond Pentagon grille and LED-illuminated Dragon Taillights further enhance the RDX’s curb appeal. If you desire an even sportier look, go for the stunning A-Spec trim. Wider wheels and high-performance exhaust outlets enable it to make a bold statement. Some of the striking RDX paint options include Performance Red Pearl, Fathom Blue Pearl, and Platinum White Pearl.


The new 2020 Acura RDX gives you a long list of premium features for the money. An ultra-wide panoramic sunroof, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and satellite radio all come standard on the RDX. Meanwhile, Mercedes-Benz charges extra for these same features. While both SUVs provide advanced safety technologies like automatic emergency braking, you’ll only find Road Departure Mitigation on the new RDX. When you’re on the verge of unintentionally drifting off the paved road surface, this feature can help steer you back on track.
