Comparing the GLC vs. Lexus RX vs. BMW X3: Which is Right for You?

Before you head out to the nearest Lexus or BMW dealer, compare the new GLC vs. Lexus RX vs. BMW X3 below!

Only the GLC Goes the Extra Mile

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 generates more torque than the Lexus RX and BMW X3, which means more low-end engine power. It also gets a 9-speed automatic for smoother shifting as you cruise through Evanston and Oak Park. Inside, you’ll find similar cargo space, as well as safety features not offered on the RX or X3. Only the GLC comes with forward collision mitigation, a pre-collision system, and a driver attention monitor.
