2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA VS 2019 Lexus UX
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2019 Lexus UX: Performance
The 2019 Lexus UX delivers a smooth ride over most road surfaces, and its small size makes it incredibly maneuverable. However, its engine feels underpowered at times, and even though it’s fairly agile, the UX is less fun to drive than many class rivals. Front-wheel drive comes standard; all-wheel drive is not available. It features a 169-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission. The transmission generally works smoothly. But, don’t expect to be wowed by this powertrain. It gets you from point A to point B, but it takes its time. Most class rivals are more powerful and deliver better acceleration.
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2019 Lexus UX: Feature Comparison
The all new 2019 Lexus UX looks stylish inside, but others say there are some low-grade, even cheap, materials. The UX’s standard infotainment system includes a 7-inch display screen, the Lexus Remote Touch Interface, a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and three USB ports. The Lexus Safety System+ 2.0 also comes standard, and it includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, lane trace assist, traffic sign recognition, automatic high beams, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection. The infotainment system leaves plenty of room for improvement. Some of the controls are in unconventional locations – like the audio knobs on the center console. The system’s menus are unnecessarily complex, and the Remote Touch controller is an unwieldy way to make selections.
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2019 Lexus UX: Overall Comparison
The 2019 Lexus UX is an all-new model. It’s smooth and stylish, but it has some tech issues, and many rivals are more powerful and more fun to drive. That’s why the UX debuts in the middle of the luxury subcompact SUV rankings. It never hurts to explore your options before you consider this luxury subcompact SUV.
