Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Lexus NX

    • Standard 3 year/1,00,000km warranty on the car and 5 year/1,50,000km warranty on the hybrid powertrain
    • 14-speaker Mark Levinson sound system is a bliss
    • Hybrid powertrain offers a good balance of performance and real-time efficiency
    • Oh boy, it is a looker! The massive Lexus spindle grille is attention-grabbing

    Mercedes-Benz C-Class

    • Snob value. Nothing else says you’ve arrived in life like a Mercedes-Benz.
    • Build quality. Solid feeling doors, soft-touch material everywhere, wood trims make the car feel rich.
    • Drivability. New 2.0-litre engine is equally comfortable if you’re stuck in traffic or belting it on the highway.
    • Efficiency. With 14.37kmpl inside the city and 21.40kmpl on the highway, it’s frugal to run daily.

    Lexus NX

    • City-oriented, not as enthusiastic to drive compared to its German rivals
    • Firm overall ride might not be good for Indian road conditions
    • Overpriced compared to immediate rivals, courtesy CBU (Completely Built Unit) import

    Mercedes-Benz C-Class

    • Missing features vis-a-vis global spec. LCD instrument cluster is a big miss.
    • Backseat space, especially headroom, is underwhelming. It’s not a spacious sedan.
    • Stiff ride quality might not please all. Road imperfections are felt inside the cabin.
