2016 Lexus LX 570 vs 2016 Mercedes GL450

2016 Lexus LX 570 VS Mercedes GL450 Comparison

The 2016 Lexus LX 570 dominates with style and grace, while packing a punch when it comes to both high-class luxury and off-road capabilities.  The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class returns this year with the GL450, bringing with it new features while maintaining the high standards and sporty looks of its predecessor.  There is certainly fierce competition between the two, as both provide luxury, comfort and performance.  Let’s see how they stack up.

Interior

As luxury vehicles, both vehicles offer comfortable rides for passengers, but the LX 570 outpaces the GL450 when it comes to convenience features like voice-command infotainment, navigation systems, accessible power ports and more.  Front driver and passenger seats are heated in both models as well as power adjustable.  Lavish details grace the LX 570’s interior like available ambient led lighting, genuine wood and leather gear shift knob and a steering wheel which can also be heated. It gives you just enough little extras that remind you that your SUV experience should be luxurious.

When it comes to passenger space, the 159 cu. ft. of total passenger volume of the LX 570 exceeds that of the GL450 by 15 cu. ft.  Passenger seating is won by the LX 570 toting up to 8 passengers while the GL450 only handles an awkward 7.  The GL450 does offer additional cargo space, but only a half-cubic foot more than the LX 570.  With the extra passenger space, the LX 570 gets the slight edge here.

Exterior

The body style of the Mercedes GL450 is reminiscent of other standard SUVs out there while the Lexus LX 570 assumes more authority with a broad front end that shows the road that you mean business.  Both SUVs feature extra amenities including a power lift gate, sunroof and tinted windows.

Size may be a factor you look at when deciding between the two vehicles.  There’s no doubting that the LX 570 is a rather large SUV, but this contributes to its ability to haul additional passengers or cargo.  The LX 570 is more substantial with nearly an additional inch in height, giving it a regal and stately appearance that commands the attention it deserves.

Performance

A Lexus’ beefy powertrain sets the bar for performance.  The LX 570 boasts a 383 horsepower, 5.7L V8 engine at the base model while the GL450 holds a 362 horsepower 3.0L V6 engine – both reaching 60mph in 6.7 seconds.  Both vehicles have real towing capability, but the Mercedes GL450 does perform slightly better with towing up to 7500 lbs - 500 lbs more than the LX 570.  Off-road, the LX 570 ticks all the boxes with Crawl Control, Multi-Terrain Select, Active Height Control and Variable Gear-Ratio Steering.
