There are many fine options out there when it comes to luxury vehicles, so it can be difficult to find which one is the best for your life. When choosing a luxury performance SUV, many compare the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC to the BMW X3. We believe the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC is the better option--let us show you a few reasons why:


The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs the BMW X3

  • Performance -- Both the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC and BMW are fine vehicles, but the Mercedes-Benz GLC drives with confidence. The Mercedes-Benz GLC offers 273 pound-feet of torque, 241 horsepower, the paddle-shifted 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission, and a precision tuned suspension. The BMW X3's eight-speed automatic transmission and lower torque ratings are adequate, however.
  • Style -- The Mercedes-Benz GLC isn't the same-old silver luxury SUV or sedan you see around town every day. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC is designed as a unique four-door coupe, with an expertly sculpted exterior, premium wood and leather accented interior, stellar luxury features like premium MB-Tex heated and ventilated seats, and all the latest tech. The BMW X3 has jagged exterior lines, a small 6.5-inch display, and everyday leather seats.
  • Safety -- High-tech safety is plentiful on the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC, with a large suite of safety features, like Crosswind Assist, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS, ATTENTION ASSIST, LED running lamps and taillights, Adaptive braking, BAS PLUS with cross-traffic assist, DISTRONIC PLUS with steering assist, PRE-SAFE brake with pedestrian recognition, Active blind spot assist, and Active lane keeping assist, to name a few. The BMW X3 has some comparable features, if you'd like to include the Driving Assistance Package, the Driver Assistance Plus Package, the Parking Assistance Package, and the Executive Package.
