2019 BMW X2 vs. 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA


Sporty SUVs are the name of the game when it comes to the BMW X2 vs. the Mercedes-Benz GLA. With the mind and design of a crossover and the function and performance of a large SUV, these luxury options are representative of the current crop of the most popular vehicle styles on the market. That means there's a lot of competition, so which dynamic SUV comes out on top: the X2 or GLA? Follow along with us at Edmonton BMW and find out!


Both of these vehicles demonstrate sporty performance off their unique designs alone. Styled from front to back, the X2 presents air inlets, side skirts, wheel arches, a panorama glass roof and an M rear spoiler, for unified performance-driven characteristics across this SUV. There's no mistaking the performance ready to jump out of the X2, designed with classic BMW sport and power tenets at the forefront. While the X2 fits in on the racetrack, the GLA looks more at home just on the urban streets, with a trim outline that leads out from its unmistakable front grille, with the centred Mercedes-Benz logo. The GLA also puts a prime focus on spacious cabin room and a cargo area for your goods. The X2 has an adventurous soul, too, with plenty of interior and exterior storage options, to go along with its sporting good looks.


BMW power is ever-present in the X2 through its M Performance TwinPower 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder engine, offering 228 horsepower for your driving needs. The GLA 250 engine provides turbocharged horsepower at 208, which is a bit shy of the X2's peppy power. Both vehicles are fit for the Alberta weather and environment, with the BMW's legendary xDrive system and the 4MATIC all-wheel drive on the Mercedes-Benz, so traction and control are always a mainstay in these SUV performers. Sport packages can be found on both models, for added style and performance, a realm that BMW has near-perfected with their M line of features, a legendary class known worldwide.

The BMW X2 is the all-performer over both design and performance realms, besting the Mercedes-Benz GLA. While the X2 starts at $42,250 and the GLA at $39,200, that difference in price is clearly made up by the BMW.
