Dealership Information

Are you searching for your next compact luxury SUV? If so, let us at BMW of Schererville lend a helping hand. We want to narrow down your choices by pitting the 2018 BMW X1 against the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA. Both of these SUVs offer quite a lot, but only the X1 checks off all of your needs. Once this competition ends, you’ll want to race over to us so you can get your hands on the BMW X1. If you want to learn more before coming in, you can call us at 800-860-3545.

In terms of space, you’ll find plenty of it in the BMW X1. Your taller passengers will appreciate the 41.9 inches of headroom in the X1. Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz GLA only offers 38.4 inches of headroom, which means your tall friends may feel a little cramped. Both you and your copilot will receive a generous 40.4 inches of legroom to stretch out in, while your rear passengers sit back and relax in the 37 inches of legroom provided to them. Whether you’re sitting in the front or the rear of the GLA, you’ll still have limited space, as it only has 40.2 and 27.1 inches of legroom, respectively. Load up the BMW X1 in the 27.1 cubic ft. of room behind the rear row and head on down to Navy Pier for the day. You won’t be able to fit nearly as much in the GLA, since it only offers 17.2 cubic ft. of space behind the rear row.

Continuing to browse through the interior of these two compact luxury SUVs, lets see what amenities each one has to offer. Hear your favorite tunes being played through the X1’s standard HiFi Sound System, which comes with seven speakers and a 205-watt amplifier. On the Mercedes-Benz GLA’s base model, there is only a 6-speaker audio system. If you’re tired of carrying your charging cord around everywhere you go, leave it at home because the BMW X1 comes with an available wireless charging station. This way you can make room in your bag for more important things. This is not an available feature on any of the GLA’s trim levels.

As for performance, the BMW X1 is clearly the favorite with its standard 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine. Compared to the GLA’s standard 2.0L turbo inline-4 powertrain, which only manages 208 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, the X1 cranks out a thrilling 228 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The X1 is paired with an 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission while the GLA only comes standard with a 7-speed double-clutch automatic transmission.

Providing you with more space, amenities, and a better performance, the BMW X1 is the clear victor of this 2018 BMW X1 vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA near Chicago, IL. Stop by BMW of Schererville to take this compact luxury SUV out for a test drive!

I can’t stress how great this dealership was during my most recent visit. From my initial call to set the appointment to dropping off the loaner the process was seamless. Nick, (my consultant) was absolutely wonderful, he kept me updated throughout the entire process, and worked diligently with my warranty company to get my claim approved. Ultimate driving machine, and an awesome team to service them! Thanks Nick and team!!
