Choosing the right car can be difficult. We get it. It gets even tougher when you’re choosing between a BMW and a Mercedes. However, BMW tends to get the edge in most cases, and we’re going to tell you why that is the case in the competition between the 2017 BMWX1 and the 2017 Mercedes GLA.
To start, the X1 has a more powerful engine. Although the GLA provides a powerful engine with the turbocharged 2.0-liter that pushes 208 horsepower, the X1 is just a little bit more powerful. In this year’s model, the X1 features a 2.0-liter I4 engine that offers an impressive 228 horsepower.
In addition to being more powerful, the 2017 X1 is a crossover that is a dream for a family. The BMW provides 40.4 inches of front legroom as compared to 40.2 inches in the Mercedes, and the X1 also provides 37 inches of legroom in the back as compared to 27.1 inches in the Mercedes. This makes for a much more comfortable ride for everyone in the car.
Although both vehicles are very strong options, the X1 comes out a little bit ahead of the 2017 GLA. Come see us at Union Park BMW to take a test drive to see why the X1 is the right car for you.
We offer a large selection of new BMW cars, as well as used cars, BMW parts, and service for all BMW models, including the 3 Series, M3, X3, and X5.
