Lexus vs. Mercedes-Benz: Certified Pre-Owned Program

While Lexus and Mercedes-Benz both offer various perks in their certified pre-owned programs, Mercedes-Benz offers certain exclusive benefits that Lexus can’t match. For one, the Mercedes-Benz CPO program includes a 7-day/500-mile Exchange Privilege, while Lexus doesn’t. Additionally, Mercedes-Benz models go through a more thorough inspection than Lexus CPO vehicles. Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned vehicles have to pass a 165-point inspection, while Lexus Certified Pre-Owned vehicles must go through a 161-point inspection.

Lexus vs. Mercedes-Benz: Sedans & Coupes

  • CLA vs. Lexus IS: The Mercedes-Benz CLA and Lexus IS have starting MSRPs of $33,100 and $38,410, respectively, making the CLA the more cost-effective choice. Though the CLA is less expensive, the CLA offers features the Lexus IS doesn’t, including standard memory settings for the front seats and 14-way power adjustable front seats.
  • E-Class vs. Lexus GS: Both the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and Lexus GS come equipped with a 241-hp 2.0L turbo inline-4 engine. The E-Class produces an extra 15 lb-ft of torque, though. The E-Class also comes equipped with a 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission, resulting in smoother handling on San Jose streets.
  • S-Class vs. Lexus LS: The S-Class provides features that are not included on the Lexus LS, including standard leather upholstery and a standard panorama roof.

Lexus vs. Mercedes-Benz: SUVs

  • GLA 4MATIC® vs. Lexus NX AWD: If you’re basing your decision on price, the GLA 4MATIC® is the better pick; it starts at $35,950 — almost $2,000 less than the Lexus NX. The GLA 4MATIC® also provides smoother handling with its 7G-DCT® 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
  • GLC vs. Lexus RX: Unlike the RX, the GLC comes with standard driver memory settings. The GLC also offers more cargo space than the Lexus RX. With the rear seat in use, the GLC comes with 19.4 cubic feet of cargo space, while the Lexus RX offers 18.4 cubic feet of space.
  • GLS vs. Lexus LX: The GLS is more competitively priced than the Lexus LX. The LX has a starting MSRP of $86,080, and the GLS starts at $70,150 MSRP. The GLS offers more space as well.
