2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG® GLA 45 vs 2019 BMW X2 M35i
Somewhere beyond the basic (if you could even call it that) nature of the conventional Mercedes-Benz engine, there is something much more demonizing. Something so powerful that it deserves its own name, almost a different world of Mercedes-Benz models. It’s this lineup of engines that truly makes Mercedes-Benz a stark competitor in a world of wannabes and try-hards. Of course, we’re referring to the AMG® lineup. This lineup of performance-enhanced sports car and SUV engines make a world of difference under the hood, as they bring out the true spirit of the Mercedes-Benz heritage. In this comparison between the 2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG® GLA 45 and the 2019 BMW X2M35i, you’ll have the opportunity to see how a subcompact SUV, the smallest segment of SUVs available, can pack quite the punch. Strap on your seatbelts and start revving the engine.

Highlights in the 2019 AMG® GLA 45
While the base GLA 250 is pretty powerful for a subcompact SUV, the AMG® GLA 45 is a whole other animal. Even when compared against the performance-enhanced X2 from BMW, it still compares quite favorably with much more horsepower under the hood for an enhanced adrenaline-inducing experience. Complete with 20-inch aluminum alloy wheels and an AMG SPEEDSHIFT® 7-speed automatic transmission, the 2019 AMG® GLA 45 makes the most from its 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine – the most powerful 4-cylinder engine in production. Some of the other highlights found in the performance-enhanced subcompact SUV include:
- Panorama roof
- Remote start
- 14-way power driver’s seat with memory
- Ambient interior lighting
- COMAND® navigation
- Harman/Kardon LOGIC7 sound system
- In-car Wi-Fi hotspot
- Surround View System
- Lane Keeping Assist
- And much more!
If you’re sick of settling for average, or you just need a change of pace from the conventional nature of modern driving, give some thought to something totally different.
