2019 BMW X3 vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 in Baton Rouge, LA

Here at Brian Harris BMW, we know that there are an abundance of luxury compact SUVs for you to choose from, but there’s one that stands out from the rest — the 2019 BMW X3. This vehicle will impress you with its performance features, exterior, and interior space. Better yet, we put it head-to-head with the Mercedes-Benz GLA 250, so you can see why the X3 takes home the trophy. If you wish to speak with one of our helpful staff members, feel free to contact us at 833-854-2575. We’d love to hear from you!

Performance

Let’s begin by explaining the performance capabilities that these luxury compact SUVs bring to the forefront. Rumbling beneath the sheet metal of the BMW X3 is a standard 2.0L turbo inline 4-cylinder powerhouse that churns out an exhilarating 248-hp. Married to this system is a standard 8-speed automatic transmission that effortlessly switches gears for a smooth drive on Route 61 as you make your way to the office. We couldn’t leave out that the X3 also comes equipped with a large 17.2-gallon fuel tank, so you can keep more of your hard-earned cash in your pockets. Sadly, the GLA 250 achieves an unsatisfying 208-hp with its similar 2.0L inline 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that comes standard under the hood. Mated to this sluggish powertrain is a 7-speed automatic transmission that doesn’t shift as evenly as the X3. Last, but not least, the tiny 14.8-gallon fuel tank might have you visiting local gas stations more frequently than you would like, showing you that the X3 takes the lead in this category!

Exterior & Cabin Space

Now that you know how these vehicles tackle the roads, we need to talk a little bit about the exterior and interior space. The standard programmable LED Daytime Running Lights help other drivers see you, while giving them an illuminating experience that they yearn for on their vehicle. Your passengers riding along in the back seat will be able to stretch out comfortably with a whopping 36.4 inches of legroom and 56 inches of shoulder room at their disposal. On the other hand, you’ll have to shell out extra cash for the optional LED Daytime Running Lights on the GLA 250. Not to mention, your friends in the rear seats will feel crammed, since this vehicle only provides them with 27.1 inches of legroom and 53.2 inches of shoulder room, making long trips less enjoyable.

Does this 2019 BMW X3 vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 in Baton Rouge, LA, comparison have you intrigued? If so, stop by Brian Harris BMW to see why the X3 is the clear winner in this battle and join us on a fun-filled test drive. We can’t wait to meet you!

Without a doubt this is the best buying experience I have ever had. The entire staff is friendly and helpful and my salesman Josh Kinsley was great. He answered all of my questions, was upfront and transparent with me and there was no hassle. I also dealt with the sales manger Darryl and I must say I'm extremely impressed. This was my 8 vehicle from Brian Harris and this was by far the best experience yet. Im loving my x7. Thanks for all the help and I look forward to doing business again.

Service Dept. employee, Rick Townley , is quite frankly why I keep coming back to your dealership. He is courteous, friendly, answers all questions, does what he says & delivers when he says. A 10 rating, unless you can get higher. Don’t know if Rick up for promotion but he should be. I’ll be back. Thanks Rick.

I've been to several car service centers but Brian Harris BMW was most definitely the best!!! Their expertise in BMWs, their customer service and how they made me feel important as a customer were second to none! They worked well with my warranty people and got my X6 back on the road running alot better than it had before. I would highly recommend Brian Harris BMW to anyone who needs professional, expertised work done on their BMW!

Mr.Billy Robin is such a nice guy . I went to look for a vehicle for my son and drove like 4 cars with different years same models and came back to Mr.Billy for the vehicle for my son . It was because how I was treated with kindness and respect and he wasn’t pushy or didn’t look down on me or trying to sale me a car because I was a woman. Thank you Mr.Billy Robin. I surely will take good care of you as well if anyone of your family members ever come to Woman’s Hospital.Lee Brown 😀😀💕🙏
