Luxury Features

The Mercedes-Benz GLC and BMW X3 share many features, including telematics service, genuine wood trim, and a leather steering wheel. Despite its lower price-tag, however, the GLC goes the extra mile to keep Eastvale and Rancho Cucamonga drivers comfortable with the following features:

  • 7-Inch Display: Instead of the BMW X3’s 6.5-inch display, you’ll get a larger one, so you can scroll through menus and view maps more easily.
  • Driver’s Seat Power Lumbar Support: Enjoy 4-way power lumbar support for the driver’s seat, sure to make even long drives less daunting. This feature is only available as an option for the BMW X3.
  • COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS®: This system uses radar to sense when a straight-ahead vehicle is slowing or stopped and can apply the brakes if you don’t act in time. You can get a similar system for the X3, but only as part of a package.
