2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 vs 2019 Lincoln Nautilus

When Lincoln first introduced the Nautilus for 2019, it was branded to be a stark improvement to the already-crowded compact SUV segment. While it has a remarkable aesthetic appeal, we decided to take a look for ourselves how it matches up against a model with the reliability and reputation of the three-prong star on the grille. Check out our comparison between the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 vs 2019 Lincoln Nautilus and see how they stack up against each other!

To get an accurate comparison, we put both base trim levels side by side. Despite a similar MSRP and nearly identical horsepower and torque, there are some vast differences when you look at what comes standard and available in each (more on that below).
