Comparison Review

Comfort
The Acura RDX offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, with comparable head- and legroom. The Acura RDX will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura RDX as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura RDX will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Dimensions
The Acura RDX is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300. When looking at overall length, the Acura RDX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Handling
The Acura RDX has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Acura RDX has a little more horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Acura RDX doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Acura RDX and the Mercedes-Benz GLC 300.
