2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 vs. 2018 BMW X1

If you’re in the market for a luxury SUV, you’ve probably come across the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 and 2018 BMW X1 during your research. Although both SUVs are powerful, high-tech, and safe, there are certainly some differences between them — and those differences matter. At Fletcher Jones Motorcars, we’ve decided to compare the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 vs. BMW X1 side-by-side so you can determine which is right for you.

Performance

You’ll find that the new GLA and X1 are both furnished with a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine that generates up to 258 Ib-ft of torque. Additionally, the GLA 250 includes standard ECO-START® and the BMW X1 comes with Auto Start/Stop. Both systems were specifically engineered to optimize fuel-efficiency and save drivers money at the fuel pumps. However, a closer look reveals that the GLA SUV’s fuel-saving system helps it achieve greater EPA-estimated ratings: 24 mpg city/33 mpg highway. The BMW X1 offers one mile per gallon less in the city and on the highway.

Cabin Comfort

The cabins of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 and 2018 BMW X1 were designed to enliven your time cruising Orange County roadways with the latest and greatest features. Both SUVs are loaded with fantastic standard features like dual-zone automatic climate control, a tilt and telescopic steering column, and split-folding rear seats. When it comes to technology, though, the 2019 GLA 250 offers more. Its cabin is furnished with features that are either unavailable or require a costly model upgrade with the BMW X1. Some of these features include:

  • 8-speaker audio system
  • 8-Inch display with a central controller
  • 14-way power driver seat with memory settings
  • Vehicle Location System

First-Class Safety

Vehicle safety should be one of your top priorities when shopping for a luxury SUV. Fortunately, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 and 2018 BMW X1 both come with a diverse array of safety features like traction and stability control, an anti-theft alarm system, and emergency telematics. Upon closer inspection, the GLA 250 offers more advanced safety features than the BMW X1, this time with standard driver assist technologies, including:

  • Active Brake Assist: With the help of radar technology, this system can inform you if a collision is likely to occur by analyzing your speed and/or distance from a vehicle or stationary object ahead.
  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: This driver attention monitor measures up to 70 different parameters of driving behavior and alerts you if signs of drowsiness are detected.

Experience the GLA 250 at Near Huntington Beach!

We think we’ve made a pretty strong case as to why the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 offers more than the 2018 BMW X1 and other competitors. The GLA, along with the GLC and GLE, hold their own against the BMW SUVs. However, we’d rather you’d experience it in person by scheduling a test drive at Fletcher Jones Motorcars near Costa Mesa and Irvine. While you’re here, be sure to ask about our GLA lease specials!
