How Does the Lexus NX Stack Up Against the Mercedes GLA?

Will the Mercedes GLA crossover be cross-shopped by Lexus NX buyers? AutoGuide thinks so and it’s put together a little comparison to see just what you’re really getting.

The most noticeable difference between the two vehicles is their size. The Lexus offers quite a bit more interior space thanks to its larger dimensions, and it’s reportedly very refined – reviewer calls it a “baby RX” in the way it feels on the road.

The smaller Mercedes can’t match it for feeling like an SUV (if that’s what you’re into…). The NX is nothing like a hatchback, although you can’t really say the same for the GLA.

If it’s performance you’re after, then the NX wins again; the comparable 2.0-liter turbo engine puts out more power and it’s enough to make it feel faster. Apparently, had it not been for the GLA’s clever seven-speed dual-clutch, it would have much more noticeably trailed the Lexus in terms of go.
