Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Acura RLX than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, the Acura RLX may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Acura RLX will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Acura RLX is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RLX and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 have similar Destination Charges.

Since the Acura RLX is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Acura RLX, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Drivetrain
The Acura RLX has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.
