2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs 2018 Lexus RC

What should a luxury vehicle accomplish? That's a question drivers need to ask themselves when considering a purchase from a luxury car brand such as Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, BMW, etc. What really sells luxury cars over the more general selection of the automotive market is their drive to seek perfection. In terms of looks, power, prestige, and technology, luxury vehicles rank at the top of the pack.

Of course, that also means that luxury brand vehicles are often much more expensive when compared to other consumer vehicles. However, that's not always the case. Today, we're looking at a pair of elegant and extravagant luxury vehicles that are both under $50,000. Not a bad deal seeing as many luxury vehicles reach up to and over $100,000. Let's look at the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs the 2018 Lexus RC.
