You’ll find plenty of luxury SUVs here in Peoria, but what about luxury off-road models? Those are a bit more difficult to come across. Thankfully, you have access to 3 powerful off-road capable vehicles here at Mercedes-Benz of Arrowhead. The GLA, GLB, and GLS all offer off-road capabilities, but today we are going to take a look at the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLB 250 4MATIC®* and how it compares to the 2020 BMW X1 sDrive28i. Let’s get started!

To begin, the power and performance specifications are quite similar. You’ll have 221 horsepower in the GLB and 228 hp in the X1. Likewise, the GLB and X1 share similar 0-60 mile per hour acceleration speeds. However, the X1 does have the ability to accelerate .3 seconds faster than the GLB. Even so, the GLB 250 4MATIC®* does have one distinct advantage over the X1 sDrive28i. This is, of course, the all-wheel drivetrain. The BMW X1 sDrive28i, on the other hand, only has front-wheel drive, which isn’t advantageous when driving off-road.
