As you can see from the comparison table, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 entry-level model starts at around $2,200 less than the base 2022 BMW X1 xDrive28i. Although both these compact SUVs pack 2.0L In-line 4-Cylinder engines, the BMW X1's twin-turbochargers help produce 20 hp more than the Mercedes. But the difference is only marginal and is not a big deal breaker.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLA is the more endearing SUV model of the two. It offers a plusher interior with ample space for up to 5 passengers, and it even features dual-zone and double-filtered climate control, which makes you forget you're in Arizona. Not only that, but the Mercedes-Benz GLA also offers impressive EPA fuel economy of up to 24 mpg in the city and up to 34 mpg on highways.
Another worthwhile feature of the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLA is the new and advanced Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) with the "Hey Mercedes" voice assistant that lets you do so much more on your 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLA with your voice.
Despite its more powerful engine, the 2022 BMW X1 falls short of the comfort and feature-set offered by the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLA. It's no surprise that the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLA is the obvious choice for most buyers.
