2016 Acura RLXIf you’re considering purchasing a new luxury sedan, you have likely been exploring the costs of various vehicles, such as the 2016 Mercedes-Benz E350 price.

If the E350 is a model you’re considering, you may have wondered how its price compares to that of other high-end models, such as the 2016 Acura RLX.

We’ve conducted a comparison between these two luxury nameplates. Keep reading, and we’ll compare both the price and the standard features of the E350 and the RLX in detail.


The Acura RLX is priced slightly higher than the E350—but when it comes to amenities that are offered standard for that base-model price, the difference between the two vehicles is considerable.

The RLX lineup includes the following trim levels and prices:

  • RLX with Technology Package: $54,450 MSRP*
  • RLX with Advance Package: $60,450 MSRP*

The Mercedes-Benz E350 is priced from $53,100 MSRP.

Standard Features

Numerous amenities are found standard in the base-model Acura RLX that the Mercedes-Benz E350 either does not provide or only offers as optional, extra-cost upgrades.

Included among them, the RLX offers standard rear-seat climate controls to keep back-seat passengers comfortable—a feature not found in the base-model E350.

The RLX also includes rear-seat head restraints to help protect the necks and spines of passengers in rear-end collisions—another feature not found in the E350 base model.

Voice-activated controls for air-conditioning, audio, navigation, and Bluetooth also come standard in the RLX, while the E350 base trim only offers voice-activated controls as an optional upgrade.

Adaptive cruise control further comes standard in the RLX, while the E350 only offers it as an extra-cost upgrade. This feature helps maintain a safe following distance between the RLX and vehicles in front of it.

Other features the RLX delivers as standard amenities that the E350 doesn’t offer standard include:

  • Rearview camera
  • Speed-sensing interval windshield wipers
  • Navigation system
  • 15 GB hard drive (the E350 only offers a 10 GB hard drive, and only as an optional upgrade)
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated front seats
  • Satellite radio
  • Noise cancellation
  • Push-start ignition
