Most luxury crossovers ride comfortably and have upmarket interiors. But Basney BMW believes a compact SAV should also be fun to drive. The BMW X3 has a posh, comfortable cabin and composed handling that's ideal for cruising around in South Bend, IN. One of the X3's German-built rivals is the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class. It's also a small luxury crossover with an attractive, well-appointed interior. But we think once you've compared the two in detail, the X3 comes out ahead of the GLC-Class in areas that count the most.

Compare the New BMW X3 with the New Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

  • Driving Pleasure: The BMW X3 is a blast to drive, with perky acceleration and lithe handling. Drivers in South Bend, IN will appreciate the X3's gentle ride, thanks to its double-pivot front strut and five-link independent rear suspension. The Mercedes-Benz GLC Class also has a smooth ride, but it doesn't match the sporty feel around curves that you get with the X3.
  • Cargo Space: Both the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class and the BMW X3 have decent cargo room, but the X3 has more. The GLC-Class has 19.4 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 56.5 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. People in South Bend who often load up their vehicle with camping or picnic supplies will prefer the X3. It has 28.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row and 62.7 cubic feet of room with the back seats down.
  • Standard Features: Both SAVs are packed with standard features, but the BMW X3 has some amenities that are only optional on the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class. Drivers in South Bend who want to easily get directions in their vehicle will appreciate that navigation comes standard in the X3. Navigation is only an optional feature in the GLC-Class.
