2020 Acura RDX and 2020 Mercedes GLC: A Duel!

Luxury compact SUV enthusiasts are increasingly spoiled for choice as manufacturers multiply initiatives to market ever more sophisticated and high-performance sport utility vehicles that won't let you down along the way. Acura RDX, Mercedes GLC and others are fighting a fierce battle, so it's often difficult to find your way around, especially in a segment where exceptional models stand out in every detail.

Acura Plus Blainville on the North Shore, near Rosemère, Sainte-Thérèse, Saint-Jérôme, Bois-des-Filion and just a few minutes from Montreal, suggests a comparison between its 2020 Acura RDX and the 2020 Mercedes GLC to better highlight the characteristics of its compact luxury SUV.


First of all, while the name Mercedes-Benz stands for a long tradition of German luxury vehicles, the name Acura stands for the leading Japanese luxury car brand outside the Japanese market. The German logo represented by a three-pointed star expresses "the company's dominance over land, sea and air". But the Japanese logo is even more evocative as it is a calliper, an extremely precise and accurate measuring instrument with the idea of highlighting the exceptional quality of the brand's vehicles. From this little story, it can already be said that Acura is hinting at more obvious signs of quality on its vehicles.

Moreover, the 2020 RDX invites you first and foremost into a spacious and seductive interior. In this regard, you'll benefit from the comfort you're looking for, since this luxury SUV features ergonomic, adjustable, heated and reclining seats in addition to providing plenty of storage space and legroom in the back. Simply, it is made for the big adventure. Going one step further, the interior impresses with its design, choice of materials and quality of finish. The manufacturer from the Land of the Rising Sun has managed to surpass itself by offering not only performance with a turbo engine, but also elegance on your getaways throughout Quebec and Canada. While the 2020 Mercedes GLC offers elegance and refinement in a luxurious interior, it appears to us that the RDX's seats are more comfortable and ergonomic than its German opponent.

It's undeniable that the 2020 Acura RDX is well equipped. In particular, it features automatic emergency braking with forward collision warning and lane departure warning in addition to adaptive cruise control and lane assist, as well as blind spot monitoring with 19-inch wheels and rear cross-traffic monitoring, LED headlights and taillights, panoramic sunroof, power liftgate, sporty dashboard, 10.25-inch touchpad, auto-dimming rearview mirror, multi-angle rearview camera, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features and much more. These same features are also found in the 2020 GLC, although the options make it much more expensive than the 2020 RDX.

Even more spectacularly, in 2020, a new 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 272 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque makes the RDX even more powerful and efficient this time around; it's now fully prepared for the big adventure. This powerplant is mated to a super-efficient 10-speed automatic transmission, enhancing the driving dynamics of this 5-door, 5-seat SUV, as well as providing flexibility and excellent all-wheel drive. As for the Mercedes 2020 GLC and in particular the GLC 300 4MATIC, it's equipped with a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that spits out 225 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, which is lower than Acura's proven 2020 RDX.
