Mercedes GLA Vs BMW X1 Comparison
The unconventional Mercedes GLA goes against the BMW X1, both of them bearing turbodiesel engines and a 4-wheel drive. Comparative review Mercedes GLA 220 CDI 4Matic vs BMW X1 xDrive 18d.
Mercedes GLA Vs BMW X1 Mercedesblog16
The Mercedes GLA represents the most modern execution of a modern crossover: stylish, elegant, with many customized packages. It has an effective engine and it is extremely economical, but unrefined. For a 4-wheel drive system derived from a front one, the Mercedes got the best it could, as the GLA is delightful and agile in driving, especially with the Dynamic Drive package. But it is not as sharp as the BMW X1, which is backed by a 4-wheel drive with sporty exposure derived from a rear wheel drive system. The X1 is a little more spacious at the rear and has a more intuitive iDrive system, but its showmanship does not make you cry out “wow” as for the GLA.
Mercedes GLA Vs BMW X1 Mercedesblog1
The two cars are very dissimilar. The xDrive system in the BMW is built starting from the rear wheel drive, while the 4Matic system in the Mercedes is derived from a front wheel drive platform. The 4Matic denomination is the same as in the bigger Mercedes models, based on rear wheel drive, but like in case of the Audi quattro, the system structure is not identical in the models using the front wheel drive platform, as for the GLA, the B-Class or the CLA.
Mercedes GLA Vs BMW X1 Mercedesblog29
On the other side, the BMW fans will not benefit on a long term basis by the incision of the X1, because the next generation will switch to front wheel drive by 2015 and is to take over the new platform already used in the Mini family and in the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer. We shall see then whether BMW can build a front wheel drive system better than the current Mercedes one.
Mercedes GLA Vs BMW X1 Mercedesblog10
The Mercedes GLA comes up with a whole new formula, as it is part of the new compact models family of Mercedes, built up on the new front wheel drive MFA (Mercedes Front Antrieb) platform, which can also be adapted to the new all wheel drive, especially developed for this platform. With a height even lower by 50 mm from that of the X1, the GLA resembles more to a new elevated A-Class than to a compact SUV, contendor for the X1. But no doubt, the GLA has a more magnetizing design. With the power dome on the bonnet, the simulated front and rear shields, a higher ground clearance, the more agressively flared wheel fenders than those of the X1 and the diminished glazed surface, the GLA looks like a modern crossover, which draws attention more than the X1.
Mercedes GLA Vs BMW X1 Mercedesblog37
With a 27 HP advantage, the Mercedes engine provides a better dynamics and the GLA also benefit of a weight by 55 kg lower. Besides, the lower silhouette of the GLA, which gives a reduced aerodynamical resistance due to the smaller front part, also helps getting a lower fuel consumption, although the GLA has higher power. For its 170 HP, the official 5,1 l/100 km fuel consumption is a record of its class. In reality, one can get figures like 6 l/100 km, which is a rewardable result for a 170 HP and 4-wheel drive model. Instead, the classical automatic 8-speed gearbox of the BMW is more precise. It is more intuitive, has a more intelligent soft and shifts faster. The automatic double clutch gearbox in the Mercedes has a slight delay in get-aways and downshifts. Especially during taking over, we wished for the GLA transmission to respond faster, when the throttle pedal is pressed.

Exclusive: first comparison test Mercedes-Benz S 500 4Matic vs BMW 750 Li xDrive
Mercedes GLA Vs BMW X1 Mercedesblog14
The 2-liter 143 HP turbodiesel in the BMW is not in the green any more, as an upgrade version of it has already been presented in the X3 facelift. The engines of both models are relatively noisy and cannot hide the diesel origin. Especially onload and during intense accelerating, you can hear that typical diesel sound, which is a bit fraughter in the Mercedes than in the BMW. The tested X1 had standard 17-inch wheels, while the Mercedes featured the AMG Sport package with sport suspension and 19-inch optional wheels. That is why, in the Mercedes, the comfort is touched by passing over short bumps. But it is not mandatory for you to purchase the AMG Sport package and, apart from the BMW, the Mercedes offers an off-road package with a suspension raised by 30 mm, perfect for the adventure lovers.

Dashboard Mercedes GLA
The cheapest version of the Mercedes GLA is the 200 CDI diesel, but this feels sluggish, so it’s worth upgrading to the 220 CDI diesel if you can afford to. Not only does it feel usefully stronger, but it adds an automatic gearbox (this costs extra on the 200 CDI) and four-wheel drive.

2015 Audi Q3 Strikes An Imposing Stance.
One of the fiercest battles for automotive supremacy rages between the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA and 2015 Audi Q3—two of the latest entries in the industry’s hottest segment of entry-level luxury crossovers. Other players in this top-notch arena include the Acura RDX, BMW X1, Infiniti QX50 (formerly EX37), Lexus NX, Lincoln MKC, Porsche Macan and the Range Rover Evoque. Suffice it to say, your options are plentiful if you’re buying in the $40,000-plus small lux-crossover market.
2015 Audi Q3 Stands Tall From Any Angle.
Both the GLA and Q3, introduced in the third quarter of 2014, represent all-new U.S. models for their respective German companies, and both offer all the technological wonders, luxurious interiors and strong powertrains one might find in their larger siblings. Each offers very similar 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engines (208 hp, 258-lb-ft of torque in the GLA, 200 hp and 207-lb-ft in the Q3), similar automatic transmissions (7-speed dual-clutch in the GLA, 6-speed Tiptronic for the Q3), and front-wheel drive or the optional all-wheel drive found on our test cars. The Benz rides on a 106-inch wheelbase, making it four inches longer than the Audi, but the Benz weighs in lighter at 3,457 pounds vs 3,682 for the Q3 (both in AWD dress). The GLA and Q3 each ride on a car-based, front-drive chassis-the CLA for the Benz, and the sixth-generation Volkswagen Golf for the Q3.
The BMW X1
The engine of the vehicle, as mentioned above, the BMW X1 power 218 PS as for the 8-speed box, it is in many modes showed itself only with the best hand.
Car Audi Q3
It came to checking Audi Q3 - this German car that was familiar even with the test in Moscow. There he performed well on all four of the Moscow ring or on the Small landing strip, Moscow, Sadovaya and Third transport ring.
Car Audi Q3: Beauty
The equipment of the car Audi Q3 looks relatively modest. Excellent sports seats provide for a fee. The same can be said about the display and dotted with all sorts of useful buttons on the steering wheel. Again though, with all this car is perceived as insufficient premium.
Mercedes GLA-Class SUV
The Mercedes GLA has a bigger boot than most rivals and 40% more space than an A-Class
Mercedes GLA-Class SUV
"The Mercedes GLA 2014 is a better car than the A-Class on which it's based. It's more practical, comfortable and attractive, but it's not exactly the SUV Mercedes claims it is either."
BMW X1 SUV (2010-2015)
In fact, the GLA is very much a car that concentrates on comfort, rather than a sporty drive. The BMW X1 and Audi Q3 are both more fun to drive, but the GLA rides very well and wind and road noise is kept to a minimum, making it a quiet and capable cruiser. It does suffer a little from body lean in the corners, however.
Audi A3 Front Angle
If affordability is the be-all and end-all of your requirements, then the Volkswagen, with its 21,700 entry price, is the best option here. The VW badge may have kudos but it still sits below Audi and BMW on the desirability front, and prices are correspondingly lower.
BMW X1 Front Angle
You’ll not be surprised to learn that the X1 is the handler of the group. It’s no BMW M3, but some of the brand’s ‘Ultimate Driving Machine’ ethos has sneaked in here, with great grip (particularly in all-wheel drive xDrive models), impressive agility and responsive steering. The trade-off is a stiffer-than-average ride.
Audi Q3 Interior
It’s become something of a motoring writers’ clich that Audi interiors are the best in the business… but they really are. The Q3’s cabin is meticulously constructed from sturdy, yet soft-touch materials. The layout is hard to fault too. Easier to fault is interior space – rear seat passengers find themselves a little bunched together. On the plus side, boot space is plentiful at 460 litres.
BMW X1 Interior
The BMW has the smallest boot of the trio, at 420 litres, and shares the Audi’s slight sense of claustrophobia. That’s the price you pay for the X1’s compact exterior proportions. The other price you pay for the price you actually pay is interior quality – while it’s well-built, it doesn’t feel quite as special as you’d hope from a BMW.
BMW X1 Driving
Entry level X1 SE models gives you dual-zone climate control, iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, parking sensors and electric windows, as well as cosmetic niceties such as alloy wheels. Basic SE spec Q3s come with all of this equipment, too. For the Tiguan, wed go for a mid-range SE spec car (once again), as basic S versions do without some of the luxury kit buyers in this class now expect.
Audi Q3 Driving
Where the Audi differentiates is in offering a true performance option. The 2.5-litre, 306-horsepower
BMW X1 Engine
Factor in running costs though, and the BMW gains ground for its impressive economy figures across the range. It’s also worth noting that the Audi and BMW’s badge kudos does mean lower depreciation, particularly if you choose a desirable engine, trim and colour combination. They are more expensive to start with, though – the BMW begins at 24,230, the Audi splits the two with a 23,875 starting price.
VW Tiguan Engine
These options make the Volkswagen Tiguan brighter, safer and more fun to drive
Audi Q3 Engine
Each of the high-end crossovers above has its merits and its faults. The Q3 has the lowest wowscore of the trio, but that shouldn’t put you off – it still gets great reviews and for some, the draw of that four-ringed badge should be enough.
BMW X1 Rear Angle
The BMW is distinctive in an entirely different way. Many found its looks hard to stomach at launch, but like
Audi Q3 Value
Reviews on the Audi’s handling are mixed – a couple of fun to drive verdicts here, a few lacks involvement summaries there. It does resist body roll well though, it’s nimble enough, and with the quattro all-wheel drive system there’s great traction whatever the weather.

“Primii 30 de ani au fost plictisitori fără voi!” Farsa Mercedes vs BMW continuă
Bmw X1 (1)
Cei de la BMW au fost deschizători de drumuri în ceea ce privește SUV-urile premium. Bavarezii au inventat SUV-ul de clasă medie X3, SUV-ul compact X1 și SUV-coupe-ul X6. Povestea lui X1 este chiar interesantă, pentru că acesta nu a fost rezultatul vreunui plan elaborat de marketing ci propunerea sindicatelor BMW care doreau un SUV mai ieftin decât X3. Prezentat sub formă de concept la salonul de la Paris în toamna lui 2008, X1 a intrat în producție un an mai târziu într-o formă aproape neschimbată. Designul său nu era prea atrăgător, dar sub banalitatea acestuia se ascundea o mașină foarte funcțională, care beneficia de excelenta platformă a Seriei 3 Touring (E91).
Bmw X1 (2)
Mercedes oferă și o poziție de condus joasă, mai apropiată de cea dintr-un autoturism în timp ce în BMW se stă mai sus. Este inechitabil însă să comparăm scaunele celor două modele, BMW fiind prezent la test cu scaunele standard, insuficient profilate și cu reglaj manual nepractic pe înălțime în timp ce Mercedes era echipat cu pachetul AMG Sport care include scaunele sport foarte bine profilate.
Noul Mercedes-Benz Clasa E, N Rom Nia De La 39.595 Euro
Turbodieselul de 2 litri și 143 CP de la BMW nu mai este la prima tinerețe, o evoluție a lui fiind deja prezentă la faceliftul lui X3.  Motoarele ambelor modele sunt relativ zgomotoase și nu își pot ascunde originea de diesel. Mai ales în sarcină și la accelerații mai viguroase se aude acel sunet specific de diesel, care este puțin mai pregant la Mercedes decât la BMW. X1 de test avea jantele standard de 17 inch în timp ce Mercedes avea pachetul AMG Sport cu suspensie sport și jante opționale de 19 inch. De aceea, la Mercedes, confortul este afectat la trecerea peste denivelările scurte. Însă nu este obligatoriu să cumpărați pachetul AMG Sport, iar spre deosebire de BMW, Mercedes oferă un pachet off-road cu suspensie înălțată cu 30 mm, ideală pentru amatorii de aventură.
Nebunie Curat ! Brabus Mercedes G63 850 Widestar Expus La Geneva
Volumul standard al portbagajului este similar la cele două modele, dar aici Mercedes este mașina mai practică, deoarece portbagajul său este mai lat și are o formă mai regulată datorită unei suspensii spate multilink mai compacte. În schimb, cu bancheta rabatată, BMW oferă un volum maxim și o lungime de încărcare mai mari. De asemenea, prin amplasarea schimbătorului cutiei automate pe colana volanului, Mercedes oferă mai multe spații de depozitare pe consola centrală și buzunare mari în uși.
Mercedes-AMG G65 Este Cea Mai Rea Ma In
Cele două mașini sunt foarte diferite. Sistemul xDrive de la BMW este construit pornind de la tracțiunea spate în timp ce sistemul 4Matic de la Mercedes este derivat dintr-o platformă cu tracțiune față. Numele 4Matic este același cu cel de la modelele Mercedes mai mari care au la bază tracțiunea spate dar, ca și în cazul lui quattro de la Audi, construcția sistemului nu este identică pe modelele care utilizează platforma cu tracțiune față, cum este cazul lui GLA, B-Class sau CLA.

La condus, BMW se simte mai incisiv, mai dinamic, mai agil și nu există niciun fel de influențe în direcție. Este încă o dovadă că pentru plăcerea în conducere nimic nu poate înlocui avantajele transmisiei spate. Sistemul xDrive este orientat spre o conducere dinamică, cuplul fiind dirijat preponederent spre spate. De altfel, distribuția lui variază între 100/0% și 50/50% spate/față.

BMW are un avantaj și în privința ergonomiei. Sistemul iDrive foarte modern, cu display de înaltă rezoluție dispune de același soft ca în modelele mai scumpe de la BMW. Prezentarea sistemului cu monitorul încastrat în bord este o reminiscență de la vechea Seria 3. Prin comparație, GLA utilizează o versiune mai veche a centralei Comand, cu multe butoane, doar monitorul de 7 inch, de sine stătător, fiind în pas cu timpurile actuale.

Talking about the transmission, Audi Q3 provide its buyers with 7 speed automatic gearbox and 6 speed manual gearbox options to the customers. Mercedes Benz GLA class uses a 7 speed automatic gearbox while Volvo V40 has the 6 speed automatic transmission system. BMW X1 is the best with the 8 speed automatic transmission system. Audi Q3 is the only vehicle to offer AWD system, and that’s a significant point of advantage over the rivals.

If you want to grab attention then the Mercedes ticks all the boxes for you. The design is fresh compared to the other two. Aggressively styled headlights, muscular design and huge 18-inch alloys make the GLA visually appealing, while the BMW looks more like a crossover and the Audi Q3 looks more like an SUV.
Mercedes-Benz GLA 220 CDI 4MATIC (X156) 2013
In terms of power, although the Mercedes-Benz GLA has the largest engine at 2,143cc, it creates the least horsepower. The most powerful car between the three is the BMW X1 at 184hp of power and 380Nm of torque with Audi Q3 taking the second spot at 174hp of power and 380Nm of torque. The Mercedes GLA comes last at 135hp of power and 300Nm of torque. With an upper hand in the power department, the BMW X1 is the quickest among the three to hit the ton mark in 7.9 seconds and has a top speed of 218kph which is marginally more than the other two SUVs. While the Audi Q3 is slightly quicker to 100kph mark than the Mercedes GLA, the latter takes the third spot in terms of top speed.

2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA Vs 2015 BMW X1
The 2015 BMW X1 is equipped with a similar 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but one that makes 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The mild power gains will likely be mitigated with lower fuel-economy ratings, as the GLA is more than 200 pounds lighter than the X1. It's also important to note the BMW X1 features rear-wheel drive rather than the flexible 4MATIC all-wheel drive system in the Mercedes-Benz GLA.

THIS IS Mercedes’ smallest and most affordable SUV, or 4x4. It is a posh alternative to popular cars you’ll spot on most school runs, such as the Ford Kuga, Nissan Qashqai and Volkswagen Tiguan, and a direct competitor to the Audi Q3 and BMW X1. With the exception of the entry-level 200 CDI model, all GLAs can be equipped with four-wheel drive, which Mercedes calls 4Matic.

Unfortunately, the Mercedes-Benz GLA is simply too new to have earned a reliability score from automotive experts at J.D. Power. We're encouraged by the above-average score of its larger sibling, the GLK, though we caution against making any reliability predictions about the GLA until it's been out for at least a few more months. Since the X1 has been on sale since 2013, however, it's already earned a J.D. Power score: three circles out of five in the firm's Power Circle Ratings, indicating average reliability.

Mercedes

The introduction of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class highlighted the desire for more compact vehicles in the luxury segment. To further cater to those drivers, Mercedes-Benz has introduced the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA — a compact crossover that delivers the performance of Mercedes-Benz with the fuel-efficiency and family-friendly features of a small utility vehicle. But the GLA isn't alone in its conquest to capture the rapidly growing compact crossover segment.

Mercedes

After this, all eyes turned to what the folks from Mercedes-Benz would get to the table. Mind you, it had been silent for a long time but now we know why. The German car manufacturer finally showcased what it had in stored and they christened it the GLA. Now, we have driven the Audi Q3 and the BMW X1, but not the Merc GLA, so this comparison will be roughly based on the specifications of the cars.

Mercedes

Presented as a concept at the Paris Motorshow in October 2008, the BMW X1 joined series production an year later, at the BMW enterprise in Leipzig. At the time of its arrival, the X1 was considered to be the first premium compact SUV, although it did not feature the proportions of a compact SUV. Its 1.545 meter height was closer to that of an estate than that of an SUV, as for the design, it looked more like an elevated 3 Series Touring than like a genuine SUV. As a matter of fact, the resemblance to the 3 Series is not just at a stylistic level. The X1 uses the technical platform of the former 3 Series Touring (E91), as the all wheel drive system xDrive is built as based on the rear wheel drive.

Mercedes

Let's talk about compact luxury for a moment. Where once upon a time, every sahib worth his salt had to be hauled around in close to five metres of lavishly trimmed metal, these days, it's perfectly acceptable for him - or today's version of him, at least - to be at the wheel of a stylish compact luxury car. The flavour of the season is the compact sedan, what with the excellent Audi A3 launched in 2014, and the swoopy Mercedes-Benz CLA launching later this month, and the luxury hatchback invasion of 2013 before that. But let's not forget what first introduced India to the idea that a relatively small car could still be a thing of opulence, command a price higher than Rs 20 lakh, and wear a fancy badge on its nose. It was, of course, the compact luxury SUV.

Mercedes

Cost There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the BMW X1 or the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X1 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class.

Vor dem Hintergrund dieses Erfolges war es nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis andere Hersteller das Segment ebenfalls besetzen. Mit dem inzwischen per Facelift aufgefrischten Audi Q3 und dem noch jungen Mercedes GLA trifft der neue BMW X1 2015 daher auf zwei ambitionierte Gegner, die um eine ganz ähnliche Zielgruppe streiten. Unser Bild-Vergleich zeigt die drei deutschen Einstiegs-SUV aus verschiedenen Perspektiven und liefert so einen Eindruck von den Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschieden beim Design:

Still, the GLA’s body is a little bit larger than the A-Class’, which means improved interior and boot space, giving owners more practicality. On top of this, the softer suspension and taller tyres ensure the SUV rides more comfortably than the firm hatchback. However, the GLA hasn’t lost the A-Class’ dynamic edge, as Mercedes’ mini 4x4 still handles sharply; it just can’t quite keep up with the

Audi India today launched the facelift version of its entry level luxury SUV Q3. Though the basic body structure of the vehicle remains the same, it now comes with certain exterior and interior modifications along with some additional equipment. With this upgrade, Audi aims at offering a tough competition to its arch German rivals, BMW and Mercedes who have their own entry level SUVs in the market. Though, Audi was the first to explore this segment in India with the Q3, it was soon followed by BMW with their X1 and recently Mercedes decided to join in as well with the GLA class. We take a look at what these compact premium SUV's have to offer in term of style, equipment and performance.

It's a German showdown to conquer the top spot in the entry-level luxury SUV space as Mercedes, BMW and Audi battle it out. The BMW X1 and Audi Q3 have been in the market for quite some time. But Mercedes will soon introduce its product, the GLA, to challenge the two and to capture a share of the entry-level luxury SUV segment. So we decided to compare the diesel variants of these three SUVs to find out which product outdoes the others.

Mercedes

What you'll like: Aggressive styling. Stands out from the other crossovers in this segment A proper Mercedes on the inside. Top-notch interior quality Potent petrol engine with 181 BHP on tap. Good driveability & performance 7-speed automatic transmission is extremely smooth. Paddle shifters too Car-like dynamics, awesome brakes & 183 mm of ground clearance for rough roads Well-kitted: 18" rims, panoramic sunroof, bi-xenon headlamps, memory seats, Harman Kardon ICE etc. 5 star NCAP safety rating. 7 airbags, ESP, ABS, attention assist & more What you won't: Expensive for a small crossover. On-road price crosses 40 lakhs! Mediocre diesel engine. 40 - 50 horses lesser than the Audi Q3 & BMW X1 A 4-seater at best. Rear space comparable to B2-segment hatchbacks. Also, poor under-thigh support FWD only. No AWD on offer like the Q3 Ride quality has a firm edge to it. Compliant, yet far from plush Transmission isn't as quick to shift as a dual-clutch ought to be Spare tyre significantly reduces the usable luggage space

Mercedes

From there the GLA250 exclusively adds 19-inch alloy wheels (17s on Q3), panoramic sunroof, electrically adjustable front seats with heating, bi-xenon headlights with auto high-beam, satellite navigation, front parking sensors with semi-automatic parking function, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitor and nine airbags – adding rear side airbags and a driver’s knee airbag to the Audi’s six in total, including dual front, front-side and full-length curtain protection.

When there is a comparison between three cars, the first thing that people look for is the brands that are being compared and when they hear that the comparison is between Mercedes, Audi and BMW, it’s hard not to look further for information. Each of the brands a specialist in their fields, let’s have a look at how BMW X1 vs Audi Q3 vs Mercedes-Benz GLA fare when pitted against each other on the roads.

Mercedes

With Mercedes-Benz stepping into the luxury compact SUV segment, it is up for a faceoff against the existing players in the league. Importantly, Audi Q3 and BMW X1 are the two German rivals standing in front for the challenge, while Volvo V40 too poses a threat. The entry level car is launched in three variants named as: GLA 200 Sport Turbo Petrol, GLA 200 CDI and GLA 200 CDI Sport priced respectively at INR 36 Lakhs, INR 32.5 Lakhs and INR 36.9 Lakhs (Ex-showroom, New Delhi). The prices lie almost in the same bracket as others except the

There are three engines to choose from in the standard model: two diesels and one petrol (there's also a madcap high-performance AMG GLA 45 that we’ve reviewed separately). The two diesels both displace 2.1 litres and produce 134 and 174bhp respectively, while the GLA 250 petrol is a 2.0-litre turbo producing 208bhp. Both the more powerful diesel and the petrol are only available with Mercedes’ 4MATIC four-wheel-drive system, as well as the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The less powerful entry-level diesel, however, is only available with front-wheel drive, but it does retain the choice between dual-clutch or manual transmission.

I haven't driven the Mercedes, but I currently drive the X1 and it is a very nice car. Same with the Q3, taken it for a spin and loved it. X1 is great on gas too, and gives you decent performance considering how very little it uses in terms of gas. Would you be getting the diesel model? In all honesty, the Mercedes is the ugliest out of the lot, and in terms of these lines of cars, Mercedes "cheaper" models are something I've never found to be of their top quality. Seems like they skimp out on a lot on their more affordable models. Just my opinion. What are the prices like in the US for these? These are all essentially $60,000 cars over here in Australia.

One of the fiercest battles for automotive supremacy rages between the 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLA and 2015 Audi Q3—two of the latest entries in the industry’s hottest segment of entry-level luxury crossovers. Other players in this top-notch arena include the Acura RDX, BMW X1, Infiniti QX50 (formerly EX37), Lexus NX, Lincoln MKC, Porsche Macan and the Range Rover Evoque. Suffice it to say, your options are plentiful if you’re buying in the $40,000-plus small lux-crossover market.

It’s become something of a motoring writers’ clich that Audi interiors are the best in the business… but they really are. The Q3’s cabin is meticulously constructed from sturdy, yet soft-touch materials. The layout is hard to fault too. Easier to fault is interior space – rear seat passengers find themselves a little bunched together. On the plus side, boot space is plentiful at 460 litres.

Mercedes

Presente comme un crossover, le Mercedes GLA n'est finalement pas plus haut qu'une Citroen C4 : 1,49 m seulement, soit 12 cm de moins que l'Audi Q3 ! Cela dit, son rival du jour ne rend pas plus hommage a ses ancetres tout-terrain. Surtout dans cette finition S line, enrobee d'un pack du meme nom : entourages d'ailes peints, boucliers dynamises. Sans oublier les roues de 19 pouces chaussees de pneus sportifs (Pirelli P Zero). Ainsi, malgre sa hauteur superieure de 12 cm par rapport au GLA, le Q3 ne fleure pas plus l'aventure, assimilant le moindre dos d'ane a une zone de trial, et les franchissements de trottoir a de perilleux croisements de pont ! Ces SUV bourgeois assimilent le moindre dos d'ane a une zone de trial, et les franchissements de trottoir a de perilleux croisements de pont ! Les versions retenues aujourd'hui sauront toutefois, en toute serenite, s'evader des centres-villes proprets : puissants diesels, pour securiser les relances sur route, et transmissions integrales, histoire d'affronter les cols enneiges. Et si finalement, ces modeles d'apparence futiles savaient tout faire ?

Mercedes

And here’s where that value-for-money thing steps-in. Despite its entry-level status and under $50K swing tag, the GLA 200 CDI boasts the expected armory of Mercedes-Benz technology/luxury and safety such as a beautiful leather-trimmed interior, Becker Map Pilot satellite navigation, reversing camera (an option on the BMW X1), electronic tailgate, Active Park Assist (parallel or 90-degree), Blind Spot Assist and Collision Prevention Assist.

To conduct the test we went to Riga. Why this was chosen as the capital of Latvia? The answer is ridiculously simple. Only in Riga we managed to get the car Mercedes-Benz GLA. A thousand miles was not an obstacle for us. After learning about the presence of a test crossover in Riga, we were soon loaded with the necessary equipment out of the trunk of the car Audi Q3, put the meter in a BMW and profits in one of the most amazing capitals of the world. Here we have to make hard exam, in order to identify the winner.

FATTI NON FOSTE A VIVER COME BRUTI... CosÀ ammoniva il Sommo Poeta. E in effetti, a giudicare dalle molteplici varianti di carrozzeria che spuntano come funghi nel prato (sempre poco verde) del mercato, sembra proprio che berline, station e coupé siano ormai sorpassate, relegate ad un tempo che non esiste più. La dimostrazione vivente, gomma e lamiera, è la Mercedes GLA, ultima arrivata: crossover, come si dice in gergo, metà classe A metà fuoristrada. L'abbiamo messa a confronto con due istituzioni dell'ormai sterminato segmento Suv e crossover, BMW X1 e Mini Countryman.

Mercedes

The GLA's exterior design appears to be two-parts A-class hatchback mixed with one-part M-class off-roader. Essentially, there are two trim levels: SE and AMG Line. Each one gives the GLA a different look and style for the exterior. The latter gives the car a slightly more sporty appearance, and comes with lowered suspension, drilled brake discs and sports seats. If you aren’t sure which to choose, ask a Mercedes dealer whether they can arrange for you to view and sit in SE and AMG models at the same time.

Cei de la BMW au fost deschizători de drumuri în ceea ce privește SUV-urile premium. Bavarezii au inventat SUV-ul de clasă medie X3, SUV-ul compact X1 și SUV-coupe-ul X6. Povestea lui X1 este chiar interesantă, pentru că acesta nu a fost rezultatul vreunui plan elaborat de marketing ci propunerea sindicatelor BMW care doreau un SUV mai ieftin decât X3. Prezentat sub formă de concept la salonul de la Paris în toamna lui 2008, X1 a intrat în producție un an mai târziu într-o formă aproape neschimbată. Designul său nu era prea atrăgător, dar sub banalitatea acestuia se ascundea o mașină foarte funcțională, care beneficia de excelenta platformă a Seriei 3 Touring (E91).

Inside, the Encore's distinctive styling carries over to a flowing instrument panel that wraps naturally into the door panels. A prominent central instrument panel houses the seven-inch, high-resolution, full-color display for the standard IntelliLink voice-activated infotainment system. It also features displays for the SiriusXM Satellite Radio and standard rearview camera, as well as the available GPS-enabled navigation system. GM

Prezentat sub formă de concept la Salonul de la Paris în octombrie 2008, BMW X1 a intrat în producție un an mai tîrziu la uzina BMW din Leipzig. La momentul apariției sale, X1 a fost considerat primul SUV compact premium deși nu avea proporțiile unui SUV compact. Înălțimea lui de 1545 mm era mai apropiată de a unui break decât de a unui SUV iar ca design arăta mai mult ca un Seria 3 Touring înălțat decât ca un SUV veritabil. De altfel, asemănarea cu Seria 3 nu este doar stilistică. X1 utilizează platforma tehnică de la fosta Serie 3 Touring (E91), sistemul de tracțiune integrală xDrive fiind construit pe baza tracțiunii spate.

In its base form your money gets you a six-speaker stereo with USB and Bluetooth, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, alarm with tow away and motion sensor, man-made 'leather' trim, rear-vision camera, front and rear proximity sensors, electric front seats with memory and heating, auto headlights and wipers, active bi-xenon headlights, keyless entry, gigantic panoramic sunroof and power mirrors and windows.

Pod względem osiągów Mercedes ustępuje obu konkurentom. Przy czym nie jest to wcale wina słabszego napędu, lecz zastosowanej dwusprzęgłowej skrzyni biegów. Przełożenia zmienia niezbyt szybko, a do tego potrafi to robić w niezdecydowany sposób. U konkurentów mechanizmy działają znacznie sprawniej – w Audi dwusprzęgłowe, 7-biegowe DSG, a w BMW jest automat, który ma 8 przełożeń.

Audi Q3 is the best looking as compared to its peers. From outside, Audi Q3 is the only one which has been given the most number of changes while the other vehicles are given tweaks here and there. It is the car which gets an overall different looks with latest changes in the form of new chrome grille on the front façade with satin finishing, renovated headlamps and daytime running headlights. The side profile of the car gets updates as well incorporating new set of alloy wheels. Where BMW X1 has also got the aesthetic values but Q3 is on the edge here. Volvo V40 and Mercedes Benz are also beautifully shaped but they do not match to the class of Audi Q3. Dimensionally speaking, BMW X1 is the longest car with the length of 4454mm and have the largest wheelbase with 2760mm.

And then we travelled to Spain in April to sample the fourth iteration of Mercedes-Benz’s small-car range (we won’t even mention the lashing the B-Class received in its first test in June ’12) and were left impressed by Benz’s Audi Q3 opponent, the GLA crossover. It was tricky to assess the improvement in the ride quality on Spain’s smooth blacktop, but what we felt and heard was promising. What’s more, the cabin was roomier than that of the cramped A-Class and pricing initially seemed fair considering the range of improvements that had been made. This experience left us eager to discover whether the great showing in Spain would translate onto South Africa’s tricky road surfaces.
