2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC VS 2019 BMW X3
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2019 BMW X3: Performance
The 2019 BMW X3 delivers just about everything you could want from a crossover SUV. Both engines feel energetic, and it handles well. The BMW X3 features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 248 horsepower. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. This engine provides more than enough juice to move this small crossover in any driving situation. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, and all-wheel drive is available. The X3’s sharp steering and nimble handling combine to make this SUV fun to drive. But there’s more to this BMW than just handling prowess; it rides comfortably over most road surfaces, and its high ground clearance makes it moderately capable for light off-roading.
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2019 BMW X3: Feature Comparison
The 2019 BMW X3 uses plenty of premium materials throughout its attractive cabin, but the interior lacks the panache of some competitors. It seats five and comes standard with leatherette upholstery and 10-way power-adjustable front seats. You can fit two adults in the back seat with no problem, but three makes a crowd. Standard features in the X3 include tri-zone automatic climate control, *Bluetooth®, a USB port, a 12-speaker audio system, HD Radio, and the iDrive infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touch screen. Standard driver assistance features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, driver drowsiness monitoring, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and traffic sign recognition. It takes some time to master the infotainment controls, but they sit within easy reach of the driver and work well once you get used to them.
2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. 2019 BMW X3: Overall Comparison
The 2019 BMW X3 finishes in the top third of the luxury compact SUV rankings. While it’s not a class leader in any one area, it is a well-rounded SUV with good performance and few obvious flaws. In fact, the X3 really doesn’t do anything badly; there are just some rivals that stand out a little more in some respects. However, because of its above-average base price, you could argue that some competitors are a better value.
