Mercedes-Benz GLA

It’s no surprise that driving a luxury SUV means having access to dazzling good looks. The 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLA and the Lexus NX are no exceptions thanks to their muscular stances that mimic their performance capabilities.

Making Heads Turn

The 2023 GLA gets a leg up on the Lexus NX thanks to its wheel sizes and designs. The NX comes with two wheel size options: standard 18 inches with 15-spoke alloy wheels or 20-inch wheels.

The 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLA, on the other hand, has options varying from standard 18-inch or optional 19-, 20-, or 21-inch wheel sizes in one of these three sporty designs:

  • Twin 5-spoke wheels
  • 10-spoke wheels
  • AMG multispoke wheels
More Options

While both luxury vehicles offer 18-inch and 20-inch wheels, only the 2023 GLA offers 19-inch and 21-inch sizes. If you’re looking for the wheel size that’s just right, you’ll have more options available to you with the 2023 GLA.

Mercedes-Benz GLA

Luxury SUVs are known for their premium features. From comfortable seating to top-notch amenities, both the 2023 GLA and the Lexus NX come with quite a few key features to take your drive to the next level.

Interior Design

Gape at the wide-open skyline with the help of either the optional panorama roof with the 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLA or the available moonroof with the NX. While both models feature similar amenities, the 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLA takes the lead in terms of comfort with features such as:

  • Available 64-color LED ambient lighting system
  • Standard power front seats with 3-position memory
  • Available heated and ventilated front seats

With the ambient lighting system, you can choose one of 64 pre-set colors to illuminate the cabin to help set the mood for your commute. With the Lexus, you’ll still have available heated and ventilated seats as well as memory seats. However, on almost all trims, they’re only available as a package—not standard.

Interior Comfort

The 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLA also offers optional leather upholstery. The Lexus NX, on the other hand, only comes with available NuLuxe® upholstery, a synthetic leather.

Additionally, you and your front-seat passenger can independently regulate and adjust your preferred climate setting with the standard dual-zone automatic climate control system in either model.

Mercedes-Benz GLA

When you’re on the hunt for the perfect addition to your driveway, powerful vehicles like these two SUVs are probably on your radar. Add some excitement to your commute with the powerful performance offered with either the 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLA or the Lexus NX.

Performance Capabilities

When it comes to power, both the 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLA and the Lexus NX go above and beyond to meet your expectations.

These two models are equipped with powerful engines that will give your commute the burst of energy you need to make each drive an exciting experience. Both SUVs also come with multiple powertrain options.

Which SUV Has More Power?

Looking at ultimate power, the 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLA takes the lead again. When equipped with the optional handcrafted AMG 2.0L turbo engine, this SUV travels with 382 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque. It accelerates from 0 to 60 MPH is just 4.4 seconds.

While other powertrain configurations are offered, the most powerful Lexus NX engine is the 2.4L turbo motor on the NX 350, which still falls behind the 2023 GLA with just 275 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. As such, it has a slower 0 to 60 MPH acceleration time of 6.6 seconds.

Mercedes-Benz GLA

Giving your Scarborough, Saco, or Portland, ME travels an upgrade is possible when you drive either the 2023 Mercedes-Benz GLA or the Lexus NX. Both SUVs offer stylish, muscular good looks; premium cabin amenities; and thrilling power, but you can only choose one.
