2018 GLA 250 vs 2018 BMW X1

Not quite as large as a midsize crossover, yet larger than a sedan, subcompact crossovers are the perfect option for drivers that want something in between. The GLA offers the ideal balance of efficiency and versatility thanks to its smart design and engineering. The following 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 vs 2018 BMW X1 comparison highlights how the GLA performs against the competition.

Subcompact SUVs were created to be affordable, and both the GLA 250 and X1 fit the bill. Both models sport a 2.0L I-4 engine, but the X1’s turbocharged engine delivers about 20 more horsepower. The GLA 250, on the other hand, offers better fuel economy than the X1.
