2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA VS 2018 BMW X2
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2018 BMW X2: Performance
The 2018 BMW X2 features a turbocharged engine that rarely feels short on power and delivers good acceleration in highway situations, but don’t expect it to blow you away. The X2 features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 228 horsepower. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The engine feels responsive and provides quick acceleration when passing cars on the highway. From a stop, however, it feels a bit more sluggish. Overall, this BMW won’t blow you away with its performance, but it makes a good daily driver. The steering feel could be better, however, as little road feedback is transmitted to the driver.
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2018 BMW X2: Feature Comparison
The 2018 BMW X2 is a new addition to the German automaker’s lineup. The cabin is quiet and looks the part of a luxury vehicle, though there are some lower-quality materials if you look closely. The X2 seats five people and comes standard with leatherette upholstery and power-adjustable front seats. The front seats are comfortable and offer generally good visibility, though you’ll have a hard time seeing out back if there are rear-seat passengers. Standard features in the X2 include automatic climate control, a seven-speaker audio system, HD Radio, a USB port, *Bluetooth®, BMW’s ConnectedDrive Services, a rearview camera, and the iDrive infotainment system with a 6.5-inch screen. The X2 features BMW’s iDrive infotainment system, which has a bit of a learning curve for unfamiliar users. Once you get used to it, however, the system is pretty easy to use.
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2018 BMW X2: Overall Comparison

Some class rivals offer more interior space, and some feature more luxurious interiors.
