2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA vs. 2019 BMW X1

BMW X1 is one of the highest-rated luxury SUVs in the industry, offering well-rounded performance and potent acceleration, but when it comes to competing with the overall specification, Mercedes-Benz GLA may have an edge. Let us do a comparison for better understanding.

Design & Style

The 2019 BMW X1 is a 5-seater model with supportive and comfortable front seats. The sound insulation is very poor, since the road noise can come into the cabin. The interior gets the attention for its soft-touch dashboard and premium styling, but some reviewers feel it could have been more elegant and classier. There’s nothing much to talk about trunk space.

The 2019 GLA is seated five with ample headroom and legroom across both the rows. You get a good driving position and great outside visibility, while the passengers can enjoy a comfortable ride even on long trips. The interior is replete with quality materials and even the plastic surfaces look posh. The strong build quality is quite evident the moment you jump inside.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 BMW X1 comes standard with an iDrive infotainment system featuring voice control, navigation, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth®, HD radio and 7 speakers. You can use the rotary dial or touch screen to control the system.  It also has a touchpad for handwriting recognition. There are plenty of standard safety features including a rearview camera, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise controls, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning and a rearview camera.

The 2019 GLA comes equipped with COMAND® infotainment system, and most of its functionality is controlled by a rotary dial on the center console. You can quickly get used to the system, as the menu layout is pretty straightforward. Other standard features include USB ports, *Bluetooth®, HD radio, push-button start and automatic climate control. Speaking of safety features, you have automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning and a rearview camera.

Performance

In terms of performance, there’s only one option with the 2019 BMW X1 powered by a 228-HP turbocharged 2-liter engine coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The engine offers plenty of power and acceleration but is only good for daily commutes. If you are a spirited driver, you need to opt for the 2019 Mercedes GLA 250 SUV which offers great acceleration right from the start.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 GLA should certainly be on your shortlist of luxury subcompact cars. It offers a comfortable ride, tight handling and balanced performance, along with abundant passenger space and high safety ratings.  BMW X1 is also a good choice, but the road and wind noise seeping inside the cabin is a real drawback for a luxury car.
