Luxury & Convenience Features

Inside the GLC 300 and the BMW X4, you’ll find a similar luxury feature set, which includes wood trim, a leather steering wheel, a central display screen, and more. The GLC SUV also includes a handful of features not offered for the X4 Sports Activity Coupe, despite the latter’s higher starting MSRP:

  • 14-Way Power Driver’s Seat — offers a broader range of power adjustments than the X4 SAV.
  • Optional Ventilated Front Seats — offers a ventilation function for the front seats to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable.

Reliable Safety & Security

As a five-passenger family vehicle, the BMW X4 emphasizes occupant safety. Strategically placed airbags, rain-sensing wipers, power-adjustable mirrors, and emergency telematics are all included as standard. For ultimate protection, the GLC 300 includes these features as well but doubles down on peace of mind by adding a few features of its own as standard, including:

  • Optional rear side airbags
  • Standard Front Airbag Deactivation via Child Seat Detection System
