GLC 300 vs. X4: Price & Performance
Under the hoods of the GLC 300 and the comparable X4 xDrive30i, you’ll find a 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder engine. However, the engine of the GLC 300 is a different beast entirely, harnessing up to 273 lb-ft of torque to overpower the 258 lb-ft of torque of the X4. This bump of power will make itself known when you attempt highway passes or quick turns at intersections, especially when paired with the additional gears of the 9-speed automatic transmission. What’s more impressive is that the new GLC starts at $40,700* while the X4 starts at a much higher price of $50,450.
