Whether it’s your next family gathering or that long-awaited camping trip, get yourself a vehicle that can make an entrance wherever you go. When it comes to the 2019 BMW X1, it’s filled to the brim with power and features that will keep you trekking down just about every path with confidence. We at Brian Harris BMW have put it up against the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA to prove its superiority among luxury SUVs. For more information, you can send us your questions via our Contact Us form.

Spacious Interior

If you’re choosing an SUV over a sedan or crossover, it’s likely because you’ve got extra things to haul around. Thankfully, you will not have to worry about leaving anything behind when you choose the BMW X1. Providing a generous 58.7 cubic ft. of cargo room, you’ll be looking for ways to fill it up. However, if you pick the Mercedes-Benz GLA, you’ll look for ways to downsize your lifestyle as it only musters up 43.6 cubic ft. of cargo space. Your rear-seat passengers will also be complaining because of the scant wiggle room in the GLA. The kids will surely  be squirming in the GLA’s back seat with its 27.1 inches of legroom and 53.2 inches of rear shoulder room. You’re better off with the BMW X1 as it offers an astounding 31.0 inches of legroom and 55.2 inches of shoulder space.

Ground Clearance

If you’re driving down the less-beaten path, you’re going to want a vessel that’s higher off the ground to prevent mud, water, and other elements getting caught in the undercarriage. And just because it’s a luxury SUV, does not mean that the 2019 BMW X1 can’t deliver when you’re venturing in the great outdoors. Pummeling through rocky and wooded areas will be no problem thanks to the X1’s 7.2-inch ride height. You’re going to have to make a pit stop at a carwash on the way home with the 2019 GLA, as it only has a 5.3-inch ground clearance.

Performance

Leaving its competitors in the wind is no problem for the X1. Thanks to the standard 2.0L TwinPower Turbo engine, you will be flying down Perkins Road with a whopping 228 horsepower! Once again, the Mercedes-Benz counterpart fails to deliver in horsepower, its 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo engine maxes out at 208 horsepower. In addition to that, the BMW X1 will be zooming past every car on the streets, going from 0 to 60 MPH in just 6.6 seconds1! Wherever your destination is, prepare to get there a bit later with the GLA, as it goes from 0 to 60 in 7.2 seconds.

Choosing between the 2019 BMW X1 vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA in Baton Rouge, LA, has never been simpler. With its powerful engine and spacious interior, you can’t go wrong with the X1! Test drive it today at Brian Harris BMW.

I worked with Cassie and the service I received couldn’t have been better. It was as close to a contactless delivery as one could get. I was in and out in 2 hours. The finance manager, Clifton, was exceptional. Explained absolutely everything. This is the 4th BMW I’ve owned, but my first experience with Brian Harris, and I would recommend them to anyone in the market for a BMW.

My service advisor Fred was really helpful. I’m really happy I got the wheel and tire protection package when I bought my bmw. Between having that and a good service advisor, I haven’t had any headaches using bmw service. The only negative thing I could even think of would be that the free cold drinks could be a little colder...

I latter received a video detailing the work on my vehicle and how everything looked on my car by the mechanic. When the worked was completed, I received a call and a text to pick up my car with the charge for service. I was humbled by the attention given to me and the service of my car.
