2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class VS 2019 Lexus IS
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 Lexus IS: Performance
The 2019 Lexus IS emphasizes comfort over sportiness and delivers an exceptionally smooth ride. Because the IS uses premium gas and has a low fuel economy rating, its fuel costs are high for the class. The standard powertrain in the IS 300 is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 241 horsepower. The IS sedan is smooth and comfortable above all else. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, and you can adjust some of the car’s tuning through the three drive modes: Normal, Comfort, and Sport.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 Lexus IS: Feature Comparison
There’s both good and bad news for the 2019 Lexus IS’ interior. On the plus side, the cabin boasts an air of sophistication. On the down side, the trunk is one of the smallest in the class, and the infotainment system can be frustrating for the driver to use. There is no touch screen, so you have to make adjustments using either the standard knob or the optional mouse-like Remote Touch controller. Both clumsily navigate through the menus and compel the driver to divert attention away from the road. Fortunately, you can circumvent some of this irritation by using the included voice commands. The base system features a 7-inch display screen, two USB ports, *Bluetooth®, HD Radio, satellite radio, Scout GPS Link, and eight speakers. Other standard amenities include a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and Lexus Safety System+.
2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. 2019 Lexus IS: Overall Comparison
Both the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Lexus IS exude elegance, but the C-Class has a few advantages over the IS. The Lexus IS is a good luxury small car. However the Mercedes-Benz has more room in both its back seat and trunk, and it’s available with premium materials that you can’t get in the IS, like real wood and leather. Unlike the IS, the C-Class is available with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class also has several iterations to choose from, including a brisk base model, a plug-in hybrid, and two high-performance AMG® editions.
