Serving Milwaukee, WI

Several beautiful models of compact luxury crossovers are currently on the market, and some of the top options are the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, the 2021 Lexus RX 350, and the 2021 Audi Q5. While these leading options are priced comparably, the GLC 300 is slightly more affordable. Are you eager to get the full details on their other exciting differences?


The exterior of the Audi Q5 is relatively modest, with straighter surfaces over the hood and roof than the other two models have. The A5 also has a large grille that covers most of the flat nose. The Lexus RX 350, on the other hand, has exaggerated curves and angles across the profile and throughout the pointed nose. The hourglass-themed grille and rigid headlights complete this look. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 strikes the perfect balance that the other two models have not achieved. It has sporty elements, such as striking contours and metallic accents over the lower front fascia. It also has attractive angles across the profile, with subtle personality lines running down the hood.


The general design theme across the exterior of these two-row crossovers carries throughout their cabins. The Audi A5 has a straight theme through the dashboard with a large screen mounted on top of the center stack. The Lexus RX, on the other hand, has extensive layering throughout the dashboard and center stack. The center stack also has a jagged accent piece that adds a sharp element to the cabin. Inside the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300, you will find a beautiful design that includes rounded air vents, a two-tone color scheme, a floating display screen, and a smooth surface throughout the console and center stack.


From a safety perspective, these three models are relatively similar. They all have standard features like a cross-traffic alert, anti-locking brakes, a blind spot monitor, stability control, traction control, and others. The GLC 300 and the RX also have standard or optional features not included in the Q5. These are a backup camera, a lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and a few others.
