The 2020 Lexus RX or the 2020 Mercedes GLE? Sleeker and more sophisticated than ever before, the 2020 RX features a redesigned front fascia, elegant character lines, and more expressive headlamps and tail lamps.

The 2020 Mercedes GLE also has lots to offer if you find yourself in the market for a well-rounded SUV luxury vehicle. Let's take an in-depth comparison between the Lexus RX and Mercedes GLE.


The RX is engineered to tap into the strength of an even more reinforced chassis, the optimized suspension delivers enhanced handling and a ride that's smoother than ever before. When combined with an array of performance features, including a transmission so intelligent it can increase torque at lower speeds for improved acceleration, new Active Cornering Assist, lightning-fast paddle shifters on every model, and an available more advanced Adaptive Variable Suspension that can monitor and adjust the shock absorber settings depending on conditions, the result is a vehicle that does more than run the show. It stops it.

A 3.5-liter V6 engine with direct and port fuel injection pairs exhilarating power with efficient fuel economy. Combined with a quick-shifting eight-speed transmission, and delivering 295 (RX 350) or 290 horsepower (RX 350L), both models offer dynamic performance at every curve. This compares to the GLE's 255 horsepower and 2.0-Liter 4 cylinder, 3.0-Liter 6 cylinder, and 4.0-Liter 8 cylinder options.



While it boasts the same powerful stance, signature floating roofline and distinctive wraparound LED taillamps as the five-passenger RX, the RXL features one noteworthy addition: a power-folding third row. Crafted to impress as much for its seamless function as for its striking form, it incorporates class-leading cargo space and seating for up to seven in the RX 350L and up to six in the RX 450hL.



The 2020 RX offers Power-Folding Seats for easy access, simply tilt and slide the second-row seat and step into the inviting third row. Plus, both the RX 350L and RX 450hL feature power-folding third-row seats with a 50/50 split for added versatility. It also features Class-Leading Cargo Space, where even with the third row up, the RX 350L and RX 450hL both have more cargo space than our competitors. So you'll have plenty of room for the weekend's purchases-and then some. For added convenience, a new Power Rear Door with Kick Sensor is also offered. Simply kick your foot under the rear bumper to open or close.

The Mercedes GLE features include a 3rd-row seating option, enough for seven seats with 6-way power-adjustment, plus power-folding of its outer seatbacks. Other features are Multicontour front seats with massage, Panorama sunroof, heated and cooled cupholders, 3-inch touchscreen, and in-car WIFI.


The 2020 RX, awarded a Five Star Overall Vehicle Score for Exceptional Safety by the NHTSA, offers a multitude of features.With the Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 leading the way, this model features a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Tracing Assist, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Road Sign Assist, All-Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Intelligent High Beams. 

The 2020 Mercedes GLE's newest safety feature comes with new technology that can spot a traffic ahead, it also includes Active Brake Assist, Blind Spot Assist, 9 airbags, and Rearview camera.
