BMW X3 vs Mercedes-Benz GLC Performance Specs

Place your foot on the gas pedal and feel the power. That's what you want out of a luxury SUV, and you'll get that out of the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC.

The BMW X3 features a peppy 2.0L BMW turbocharged engine that makes 248 horsepower, bringing together turbocharged technology with high-precision direct injection. This engine makes sure that the highway is your domain, but it performs well on side streets, too.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC offers similar power, thanks to its 255-horsepower engine. This model has been designed to provide outstanding performance and fuel economy with its hybrid engine, too, an engine the X3 also offers.

Something you'll find in the BMW X3 that you won't find in the Mercedes-Benz GLC is a 382-horespower V6 engine. The M40i trim is impressive inside and out, and also under the hood. This engine far eclipses any power output found in the GLC.

BMW X3 vs Mercedes-Benz GLC Interior

Let's take a closer look inside the cabins of these luxury SUVs. Of course, this is where you'll be spending most of your time as you take the wheel.

Both the BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC are welcoming vehicles, and it all starts with the power seats up front. The driver's seat memory feature is a standard offering in both models, so even if someone else takes over for a while, you'll be able to recall your personalized settings the next time you step inside.

You'll also have 40/20/40-split rear seats with power folding capability, which can help expand the cargo space when carrying longer and bulkier items.

Standard dual-zone automatic climate control provides comfort for the driver and front passenger in the GLC, so there's no need to compromise. The X3 goes further, though, with the standard 3-zone automatic climate control system, allowing those seated in the back to take advantage of their own oasis.

Make Your Connections

Your next luxury SUV will come with several connectivity features designed to make life easier.

Intuitive technology keeps you a step ahead, with standard Apple CarPlay™ found in both models. Connect a smartphone using the USB port found mere inches from the touchscreen, and see how quickly your favorite phone apps appear right in front of you. You'll have access to text messages, playlists, and the apps you use every day.
