2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2020 Acura RLX

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class focuses on providing a full driving experience that involves riding in a beautiful cabin with sumptuous seats and abundant space. The E-Class aims to reach out to everyone of all sizes, thus ensuring even taller passengers can enjoy pure comfort throughout the longest of drives. Does the 2020 Acura RLX have enough perks to take on the E-Class? Read our comparison below to find out.

Design & Style

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a seating capacity that supports up to 5 people. Its cabin has adequate space that supports a good amount of both leg- and headroom which are the basic essentials on top of supportive seats to support further commutes. The E-Class’ cabin is designed in a way that enables the creation of a luxurious ambience with top-notch materials being the model’s pick of its surface coverage and side trimmings.

The 2020 Acura RLX can support up to 5 people on its front seats that can be adjusted and have heating function. Both rows have adequate support on their seats which are cushy throughout longer distances too. Legroom may be an issue though for the back row due to the big hump in the middle. The car’s interior looks stylish with quality materials covering its surfaces but it does appear a little dull.

Technology & Safety

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is equipped with a long list of technological advances like a 12.3-inch screen, its COMAND® system, Android/Apple compatibility, USB ports, navigation, HD radio, and Bluetooth® connectivity. It also comes with several safety features including rain-sensing wipers, rearview camera, brake assist, attentiveness monitor, emergency brake and crosswind assists, pre-collision protection, and its own Car-to-X platform for communication with other Mercedes drivers.

The 2020 Acura RLX comes with several tech devices like an 8-inch screen, 7-inch lower screen, 14 speakers, navigation, satellite and HD radios, Bluetooth® connectivity, and USB ports. For safety, the RLX has collision warning, auto emergency brakes, blind spot monitor, rear traffic alert, rearview camera, jam and lane keep assists, departure mitigation, and cruise control.


The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is able to put out 235 horsepower and 273 lbft of torque on a 2L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Its fuel economy can reach 23 mpg while in cities and 32 mpg on highways.

The 2020 Acura RLX can make 310 horsepower on a V6 with fuel economy ratings of 20 mpg and 29 mpg in cities and on highways respectively.

The Bottom Line

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the clear winner in our comparison with its standard package which comprises of perks like ample space, cushy support, and potent performance. It is the only vehicle to deliver every aspect of a good car without needing additional upgrades. The 2020 Acura RLX on the other hand requires some improvements on its infotainment system and sloppy cabin interior quality.
