Hi fellow bros,

I jus started my homework on new ride as the old one to scrap in 6mths. I'm an SUV person.. present ride CRV... was waiting for the new CRV but it was a total disappt...so now I'm considering upgrade...

Have narrowed down to RX200t,GLC200 and XC60...

Any thoughts abt which one has the best value for $ in terms of ride comfort, safety, std features, resale, color choice for interior etc.?

Appreciate any advice to help me :) Kam Sai in adv.

Got test drive the 1st two?

 

XC60 won't be arriving in time for you I am afraid. Even if it comes, the initial markup will be scary. Advice you to focus on the Merc and Lexus.

 

GLC200 should be much cheaper than the RX.

XC60 not in yet and I don't know when it will arrive, but it would be my choice out of those three hands down.

U want spacious and reliability get RX

U want safety get xc60

U want good resale value, value for $$$ and brand get GLC

GLC much cheaper than RX?

If you can stretch a bit, the new Range Rover Velar 2.0T is coming in 4Q this year at SGD290k ...  :wub:

 

That's hands down the best looking SUV around, and I'm not even a JLR fan. 

 

But otherwise, think can't go wrong with all 3 of your choices although they are all very different.

 

RX is quieter, and feels more luxurious and solid than GLC and is a bigger car and weighs 15-20% more - arguably it straddles the GLC and GLE. 

 

GLC, in my view, looks better, has more advanced technology (including 9 speed gearbox), is faster and more agile, and feels sharper around corners. 

 

XC60 - I love everything about it but the look of the back lights. Probably the non-establishment choice, but have to wait. 

 

So really depends on what you are looking for.

If you are swayed anywhere near the Lexus RX200t for a choice, you'd need to seriously compare with the new Toyota Harrier 2.0t (sama sama engine and platform) - which is outstripping the equally new Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5 sales !

Harrier is based on the same platform as NX (width of 1835 for Harrier/1845 for NX/1895 for RX).

The RX is a size bigger.

What's your budget? All 3 are at least $60-$80k more than the CRV

Out the 3, GLC will be my pick although the rear bench is not as comfortable as I thought it should be. Nice outlook and interior.

Lexus' look very dated just as its Toyota Cousin.

Volvo has very nice cars but their pricing relative to their OMV is high. For e.g., V90's OMV is about 40k but selling it at 230k. They need to price it more competitively, I guess.

Ahhhh.....now we're talking.

If badge is the main criteria.....GLC 200. Nothing else to say.

If swee design......the new XC60. Heard asking $220k n consperm can get car very fast once it launches in Oct

If comfort....RX. Very luxurious but heard underpowered. And hv to make sure bargain min $30k off otherwise feel like carrot
