The 2014 Acura RLX Tops the 2013 Mercedes E350

August 22nd, 2013 by

You heard it hear: Chicagoland Acura dealers are declaring that the 2014 Acura RLX comes out ahead of the Mercedes E350. It might sound like a bold declaration at first, but hear us out. Of course, we’re going to ask that you take a nice long look at the RLX over there before we go on, because it is simply a magnificent vehicle to behold.

Okay, let’s move on to why you should choose the RLX over the E350.

You Can Rely on Acura

When you make an investment in a vehicle—and lets be honest here, a luxury car is certainly an investment—you want that investment to last, don’t you? And even though Mercedes has a reputation of luxury dating back quite some time, the ALG residual value of the RLX is 51% after 36 months, while the E350’s residual value is only 44%.

In addition to keeping its value, should something go wrong with your Acura, it is covered under warranty for much longer than the E350. The RLX has a 72-month/70,000-mile powertrain warranty, while the Mercedes is only under powertrain warranty for 48 months or 50,000 miles, whichever comes first.

You’ll also find some standard features on the RLX that aren’t on the E350, such as:

  • Rear seat heating/air conditioning controls
  • Rearview camera system
  • Built-in hard disk drive
  • Front heated seating
  • Satellite radio

Of course, upgrading your Mercedes with these features is surely possible, but when you’re already investing in a luxury car, shouldn’t you get what you want from the start?
