For many Costa Mesa and Irvine drivers, the ideal family vehicle is powerful, fuel-friendly, safe, and has an accommodating interior. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 and the BMW X4 are two vehicles that more than fit the bill. To see which is the smarter choice for you, check out the detailed comparison from Fletcher Jones Motorcars below! We’ve matched up the critically acclaimed 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC vs. BMW X4 to help you determine which better suits your needs.

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.

GLC 300 vs. X4: Towing & Cargo Space

Once inside, the Mercedes-Benz GLC and BMW X4 continue to share many features, including a central display screen, a multi-functional steering wheel, cruise control, and more. However, when it comes to utility, the GLC reigns supreme with: 

  • Maximum cargo capacity of 56.5 cubic feet vs. 50.5 cubic feet inside the BMW X4.
  • Towing capacity of 3,500 pounds with the optional towing hitch. Towing isn’t recommended with the X4. 
  • Lockable storage compartment under the cargo mat. This isn’t found inside the X4. 

GLC 300 vs. X4: Standard Safety Features

Yet, the Mercedes-Benz GLC still comes with cutting-edge safety features lacking on the X4, such as:
