Mercedes-Benz GLC

For luxury SUV shoppers browsing BMW dealerships in Colorado Springs for a brand new sport activity vehicle, the new BMW X3 is a standout candidate for luxury SUV buyers who are seeking an excellent combination of style, performance, and comfort for the whole family. If you're searching for new SUVs in Colorado Springs, the BMW X3 is one five-passenger vehicle that deserves your test drive! Below is a quick insight on the features offered by this unique BMW and how it competes against the Mercedes-Benz GLC.

Technology & Efficiency

Drivers who are searching for a luxury sport activity vehicle that delivers top-end safety and technology, the BMW X3 comes through in a variety of areas. With similar connectivity and multimedia interface system, drivers will have a 12-speaker sound system in the BMW compared to the Mercedes-Benz GLC's standard six speakers. The BMW X3 also comes standard with fog lights, auto-leveling headlights, and the rear parking aid, which are only optional in the upper trims of the GLC.

Luxury Meets Versatility

When it comes to plush luxury comfort and utility space for your weekend fun or family's gear, the new BMW X3 delivers high-end ventilated leatherette front sports seat options as well as a cargo capacity that extends further than the GLC model. Look to cargo space in the BMW X3 that reaches 62.7 cubic feet with the seats folded, making for more area when compared to the GLC model's 56.5 cubic feet of capacity.


The BMW X3 includes 48-month/unlimited miles for the roadside assistance warranty, which is excellent for the busy roads and highways we face in Colorado. The Mercedes-Benz roadside assistance warranty only provides a 48-month 50,000-miles.

BMW X3 vs Audi Q5 in Colorado Springs

Audi Q5

This year, the BMW X3 and Audi Q5 battle it out for top spot, especially when it comes to sport-activity vehicles. These two juggernauts are among some of the most sought-after automobiles because they can serve a wide variety of purposes. Let's breakdown each SUV to see just how they compare to one another, here at Winslow BMW of Colorado Springs.


The new BMW X3 is masterfully crafted with precision from front to rear. This SUV has an amazing exterior that's aerodynamic and athletic. Strong body lines are present as well as meticulously crafted contours on the side door panels. Stunning LEDs are placed on both ends, and some of the exterior paint options includes dark olive, blue metallic, brown metallic, glacier silver, alpine white and more.

The Audi Q5 slightly resembles its counterpart to a certain degree. Straight out of the gate, you'll notice that this SUV lacks the intricate styling of the BMW. Aerodynamics are minimal, but the Q5 displays sweeping lines throughout the frame. Audi's LEDs offer some illumination, but the overall style of this luxury SUV falls short of our contender from BMW.


The BMW X3 has a modern and sophisticated cabin. Up to five people can seat easily, and some of the best soft-touch materials can be found here. Providing optimum comfort is the name of the game as this SAV sports premium SensaTec leatherette seats. This intuitive cabin hosts a dynamic 8.8-inch touchscreen display that's touch sensitive. There's also a 12.3-inch driver display that's electrifying, along with a full-color head-up display and BMW's Intelligent Personal Assistant.

The Audi Q5 can seat up to as many as five individuals in pure comfort; refined and luxurious is the name of the game, and this vehicle certainly delivers. However, the standard driver information display and infotainment touchscreens both only measure seven inches each. The gauges aren't as electrifying, and the standard audio system provides a less immersive sound experience with 10 speakers instead of the standard 12-speaker HiFi system of the X3.
