Drivers looking for more space than a conventional sedan are usually stuck with SUVs. But what if you don’t want an SUV? Their bulky size and less agile maneuverability might be too much for some drivers. If tht sounds like you, then a subcompact SUV might be the right choice for you. You’ll get the best of both worlds: easier handling and better fuel efficiency like a sedan but more cargo space and a hatchback like an SUV. You’ll see some compelling comparisons here as we look at the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 vs 2019 BMW X1. Both are entry-level SUVs for their respective luxury nameplates, but there are a few differences that set them apart. Take a look at the table below to see which of these two has more of the features that you look for in a subcompact SUV!
The luxurious nature of the GLA 250 is enough to make you forget that it’s an entry-level luxury SUV, but that’s not because of a shortage of luxury features. The relatively low MSRP of just $33,950* is less than the X1, but with it comes an assortment of amenities like a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that gets 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque and a spacious cargo capacity of 43.6 cubic feet with the second row seats folded down. Some other exciting highlights include:
Rain-sensing windshield wipers
