2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 vs 2018 BMW X3

We have a new idea of something you should add to your shopping list. Sure, maybe you’re fine with your current SUV, but when you sit inside and turn it on does it return the favor? Probably not, which is why it’s time to consider an upgrade. Here at World Wide Motors in Indianapolis, we’re proud to offer an alternative to the traditional SUV. Check out the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 vs 2018 BMW X3.

You’ll find a wealth of performance in each of these two vehicles, with much better power and torque coming in the GLC if you opt for the AMG Coupe model. However, the GLC 300, though tamer, can still pack quite a punch and does so at a lower cost than the X3. More torque, an extra transmission speed, and a standard automatic variable transmission give it the edge over its rival. Check out some more comparisons in the table below!
