April 25th, 2016 by

2016 Acura RLXThe 2016 Acura RLX and the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E350 are both premium luxury sedans that deliver lots of upscale features, high style, and top-shelf performance. The Acura RLX simply comes better equipped in the base configuration than the Mercedes-Benz E350. Take a look at the important differences below.

Standard Equipment

In the Acura you’ll find a long list of important features that you won’t find standard in the base Mercedes-Benz ES350. The E350 comes with a relatively spartan list of features for a sedan in this class. Here are some of the most important features you get standard in the RLX but you don’t find in the base E350:

  • Rear-seat heating and air-conditioning controls
  • Retractable rear-seat head restraints
  • Voice-activated controls for air-conditioning, audio, navigation, and more, via Bluetooth wireless devices
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Rearview camera
  • Speed-sensing windshield wipers
  • Navigation with real-time traffic and voice activation
  • Built-in 15 gigabyte hard drive
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated front seats
  • Satellite radio
  • Noise cancellation
  • Keyless push-button ignition
  • Trunk pass-through
  • Second-row head restraints

You can clearly see that the RLX offers more standard equipment in the base model than the Mercedes-Benz E350. There are many other advantages that the Acura boasts over the Mercedes-Benz ES350, and some of them include a superior warranty, more horsepower, better fuel economy estimates from the EPA, and better crash test safety scores from the NHTSA.
