You’re far from the first driver to struggle between the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC and the 2017 BMW X3. We know that’s the case because we’ve helped plenty of people work through the same decision, and we’ve put together this quick and easy comparison to bring the differences between these two luxury crossovers to light.

Power and Efficiency

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC performance is exceptional thanks to a 241 hp, 273 lb-ft of torque four-cylinder engine. That’s a step up from the 2017 BMW X3’s 240 hp, 260 lb-ft of torque alternative, but the Mercedes-Benz GLC still manages to make up to 22 mpg in the city vs 21 mpg city with the BMW.

That might be because only the Mercedes-Benz brings a sophisticated 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. With more gear ratios, it can deliver power more precisely.


Comfort and Convenience Features

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC equips a 14-way power driver’s seat with memory settings and 4-way power lumbar support as standard across all trims, so you can adjust yours to perfectly match your own unique size and shape for flawless support. The 2017 BMW X3 makes do with an 8-way driver’s seat as standard, and it fails to offer the following optional Mercedes-Benz GLC features:

  • Cabin-Air Purification System: Dual activated charcoal filters and ionizer create an electrical charge to produce a fresh-air sensation.
  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto: Sync your smartphone to use features and apps through your Mercedes-Benz GLC connectivity and infotainment systems.

Driver Assistance Technology

Mercedes-Benz has positioned itself at the forefront of automotive safety technology, and the Mercedes-Benz GLC demonstrates just what a difference that makes by bringing the following features:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: Continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, providing a warning when it detects drowsiness.
  • Crosswind Assist: Detects the effects of strong side winds then strategically brakes in order to mitigate them.

These features come as standard with all new Mercedes-Benz GLC models, but you won’t find them in any 2017 BMW X3.
