Performance & MPG Ratings

Let’s begin by comparing the performance of the GLA 250 FWD and NX 300 FWD:

  • Engines: Powering the NX 300 and GLA 250 is a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with Direct Injection and an alloy block and cylinder head.
  • Specs: The NX 300 generates 235 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, while the GLA 250 generates 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.
  • Fuel Economy: The NX 300 earns a 22 mpg city/28 mpg highway rating—putting it well behind the GLA 250 with its 24 mpg city/33 mpg highway rating.

The NX 300 offers greater horsepower, but all in all, the GLA 250 can travel longer on less fuel. The GLA 250 even offers a broader range of gear ratios with its 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Luxury Features & Technology

Stylish, accommodating, and chock-full of features, both the 2019 Lexus NX 300 and 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA boast the following:

  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • 8-speaker audio system
  • Second-row folding seat
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Optional navigation

For over $2,000 less, you’ll enjoy many of the same standard and optional features inside the cabin of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 SUV. The GLA 250 even tacks on an optional power sunshade for the roof, in addition to a remote trunk release function that makes it easier for Ewa Beach drivers to open the cargo area while carrying an armful of shopping bags, packages, or anything else.

Integrated Safety Systems

Emergency telematics, side curtain airbags, and traction and stability control add to the family-friendly feel of the Lexus NX and the GLA 250. Still, the Mercedes-Benz GLA family integrates more driver assistance technologies and other features for added reassurance. The following aren’t included on the NX 300:

  • Power lumbar support for the driver
  • Standard memory-adjustable exterior mirrors
  • Standard rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Locking fuel filler door or cap
