Westport-area drivers love the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC and the 2020 BMW X3, but which of these luxury compact SUVs really has more to offer you, your friends, and your family? Although our challenger puts up a good fight, a thorough Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. BMW X3 comparison quickly reveals the answer. If you want the best, you’ve got to go with Mercedes-Benz.

Features and Amenities: GLC vs. X3

Yes, the Mercedes-Benz GLC and the BMW X3 start with near-identical price tags, but that doesn’t mean they’re equals. As soon as you start to look closely, you’ll notice a few significant differences between the offerings in their respective base trims:

  • Comfort and Convenience: Are you interested in remote engine start, blind-spot monitoring, and heated front seats? Each is standard on the GLC, but you’ll need to upgrade to get the same features in the X3.
  • Infotainment: The recently-redesigned GLC includes the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience infotainment system, which uses natural language voice processing for a singularly seamless. You’ll also receive a 10.25-inch touchscreen, which is larger than the X3’s 8.8-inch infotainment setup.
  • Options and Upgrades: It’s easy to add a dual-panel panoramic moonroof or running boards to the new GLC. Just select those options in the base trim! You’ll need to upgrade to a whole new model to access the same features in the BMW.

Both the GLC and the X3 are compact vehicles, offering room for five passengers. If you think you might need more space, compare the 2020 GLC vs. GLE with our team. Or, take an in-depth look at the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC dimensions before you decide.

Performance: GLC vs. X3

Both the GLC and the X3 are billed as high-performance luxury models, but which one actually delivers a more invigorating drive? Here’s how their base trims measure up:

  • Drivers who choose the GLC 300 SUV will enjoy 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, paired to a 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission.
  • The BMW X3 falls short with 245 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. It comes with its own 8-speed automatic transmission, which isn’t quite as adaptable as the Mercedes-Benz variant.

What about available upgrades? If you’re looking for the best of the best, you should know that both models offer a range-topping engine with 503 hp. However, the AMG® GLC offers significantly more torque (516 lb-ft vs. 442 lb-ft), and it’s also more efficient.
