2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 4MATIC® vs 2019 BMW X3
Mercedes-Benz and BMW are two iconic luxury brands that are embedded deeply in the popular consciousness. Each of these titans have made their mark on the automotive world and have offered elegant and high-performing coupes and sedans in varying sizes from compact to full-size. However in recent years these brands have also made the transition into the midsize crossover market. In this 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs 2019 BMW X3 comparison we are going to look at how these two great rivals stack up against each other.
Both crossovers come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine and have very similar engine output. The BMW has a slight advantage in horsepower, but the Mercedes-Benz pulls ahead (literally and metaphorically) when it comes to torque options. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 also has a nine-speed automatic transmission while the 2019 BMW X3 30i comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
