2017 Acura RDX vs 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 near Hartland, WI

There’s no doubt that luxury compact SUVs go above and beyond the standard. With so many choices in the segment, however, picking which one best suits you can be a long process. To lend you a hand in your research, we at Acura of Brookfield put together a comparison between two of the top entries in the class, the 2017 Acura RDX vs the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC300.

Performance is key in any vehicle, and in this battle of compact SUVs, the superior one happens to be the Acura RDX. This ride comes standard with a 3.5L i-VTEC® V6 engine in all trims, which effortlessly releases 279 horsepower. If you’re behind the wheel of the GLC300, you won’t have as much power to revel in, as it renders a less-aggressive 241 horsepower. Not only that, but the RDX also offers the option of its well-handling AWD system with Intelligent Control in every model; it simply replaces standard FWD. The 2017 GLC300 falls short in this area, as it only provides you the option for its 4MATIC® AWD system in its top trim. 

The next area in which we’ll discuss in this matchup is interior space. Of course, cabin volume is vital for any SUV buyer, and we discover that the RDX has more to offer than the GLC300. Behind its second row, you’ll find a staggering 26.1 cubic ft. of cargo volume1. The Mercedes-Benz GLC300 severely lacks in this category, as it delivers just 19.4 cubic ft. of cargo space2. While both models offer a split-folding rear seat, that’s where their similarities end. With the second row flat, the Acura RDX offers 61.3 cubic ft. of total storage space1 to accommodate more of your belongings. In the same circumstance, the GLC300 only has the capacity to create 56.5 cubic ft. of room2

2017 Acura RDX vs 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 near Hartland, WI

Vehicle shown above is the 2017 Acura RDX in Lunar Silver Metallic.

When it comes to interior amenities, we see that the 2017 RDX effortlessly keeps its lead against the GLC300. As standard in the Acura RDX, the two seats up front boast standard heating capabilities to help keep you warm and comfortable during the long winter months we endure here in the Midwest. The Mercedes-Benz GLC300 doesn’t offer such a function as standard; it only equips it as optional in its base model. Since technology is an ever-present aspect of our lives, the RDX outfits a standard 12-volt power outlet, allowing you to plug in your compatible devices while on the road. Once again, the GLC300 only offers this as optional in its base trim.

Considering the amount of differences between the 2017 Acura RDX vs 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 near Hartland, WI, we deem the RDX the clear-cut winner in this comparison! To see what else it has to offer, visit us at Acura of Brookfield today. We are conveniently located at 19180 West Bluemound Road in Brookfield, WI.

We Just brought our third vehicle with Acura of Brookfield. Totally loved our sales guy (Mike S) but Just found out he retried� but overall I would highly recommend this company. Best services ever!!! Never had a bad experience. Staff was very professional..the show room is beautiful�

"Very professional and pleasant"

DEALERRATER

I drove 3 hours to look at the car I purchased and when we arrived David came out and introduced himself and asked if we needed anything to drink, snacks or use the restroom, then we talked business. Very thoughtful! I would 100% go back to Brookfield Accrua. The finance Dept was not pushy and trying to make me purchase things I didn't need. Thank you for the pleasant car shopping experience. I've had some bad ones in the past.

"Fanstastic experience"

Just when you think the service can't get any better it does. They have an awesome staff in service and sales. I already knew their service dept. was great and now after purchasing my new Acura through them, their sales dept. is even better. Loved my experience and I will be back to buy from them in the future. Thanks Erika for making my experience so wonderful, Keep up the great work because we (the customers )do appreciate it.

Tony Glavan was an excellent salesperson. He answered all of my questions and more, and he made an extra effort to make sure that I could take my new 2018 TLX home with me that night.

I had the pleasure of working with Keith Cohen when purchasing my 2018 TLX. Keith was very graceful and attentive to my needs. His professionalism along with the technology specialist Andy Bergan exceeded my expectations. It was a phenomenal experience and I would definitely recommend the Aura Dealership to my family and friends.

I've been working with Gary since I bought my first used Acura there in 2005. 12 years later he is still there although now I mostly work with Dave. Trust has been earned. They know how to fix the Acura's I had which included a Legend, RL, and an MDX. They also do great work for my wife's Honda Pilot. The waiting room is relaxing and I can do my work emails and there are quiet business areas to take phone calls. Great professional service and Kudos to Gary and Dave.

My husband and I bought an Acura from them in 2010 that now has 214,000 miles and is still going strong. Today we picked up this beautiful car for my Mom! The financing was smooth and they not only demonstrated features for her but gave her a dozen roses! She was delighted and so were we again! Steve is wonderful to work with and we recommend the dealership and Steve! Thanks for making car buying better!!
