2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC

2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 vs 2017 BMW X3 near Santa Rosa Beach, FL

Do you dream of driving an SUV that is just as powerful as it is luxurious? Here at ZT Motors of Fort Walton Beach, that dream can be your reality! To assist you with your next purchase, we have put together a comparison of two crossover SUVS, the 2017 Mercedes GLC300 vs 2017 BMW X3 near Santa Rosa Beach, FL. See for yourself why the GLC300 is the optimal choice for a crossover SUV!

When it comes to performance, the X3 is no match for the GLC300. With a 9-speed automatic transmission and a 2.0L 4-cylinder inline engine cranking out an impressive 241-hp at 5500-rpm, the GLC300 puts the X3 to shame. The BMW X3 has an 8-speed transmission that only gets up to 240-hp at a less-than-impressive 5000-rpm. With a fuel consumption of 22/28 MPG1 city/hwy for the GLC300, its competitor will only get you a fuel economy of 21/28 city/hwy2. Additionally, the high performance Mercedes-Benz GLC300 features an impressive 273-ft-lbs. of torque power, while the BMW comes in at only 260 ft-lbs. We at ZT Motors of Fort Walton Beach know that you need an SUV that works as hard as you do, so why settle for less? It’s no secret that when comparing the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 vs 2017 BMW X3 near Santa Rosa Beach, FL, that there is no better choice than the GLC300! 

Not only is the GLC300 greater in performance, it also trumps the X3 in terms of safety features. You'll have peace of mind when you're driving to Grayton Beach State Park in your GLC300. This vehicle features Attention Assist® technology3, which continuously monitors your driving behavior and will provide audio and visual alerts if it detects signs of drowsiness in the driver’s seat. This feature is especially helpful on road trips or long commutes. Additionally, this vehicle comes standard with its innovative Pre-Safe® technology4 that keeps you and your passengers more protected than ever. This advanced system detects instability while driving and tightens seatbelts, adjusts the passenger front seat, and automatically closes the side windows in an impending accident. Although the BMW X3 has standard safety features of its own such as Head Protection System in the front and rear. along with automatic-locking retractors on passenger seatbelts, the safety technology in the X3 does not begin to compare to the state-of-the-art safety in the GLC300. With the Mercedes-Benz GLC300, you’ll feel confident that your car is doing the most to keep you and your family safe. 

After comparing the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 vs 2017 BMW X3 in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, the choice is clear, there is no better crossover SUV on the market that offers as much as the GLC300. Stop into ZT Motors of Fort Walton Beach to test drive the Merdeces-Benz GLC300 for yourself and see what everyone’s talking about!

My husband and I live in Texas and recently went to Ft. Walton beach for vacation. We have a Mercedes 350 ML and while driving one morning, the abs, esp malfunction indicator came on. We started researching the problem and decided we needed to find a Mercedes service department to take a look at it before heading back to Texas. We found ZT Motors when we googled for repair shops and decided to go straight there since it was only a few miles from our hotel. When we pulled in, we were immediately directed to the service department where we met Michael McHugh. We explained the problem to him and he told us what he thought the problem was. He also told us they were backed up for 2 weeks; however, knowing our situation, he told us if we could come back the next morning, he would expedite the repair for us. We were there early the next morning and Michael immediately got our car in, and even arranged for us to have a loaner car so we could continue our vacation. They got our car repaired within a few hours the same day. I just want to say that Mike was absolutely awesome!! He was a real lifesaver for us and his commitment to providing excellent customer service is very evident. Not only Mike, but every person we met at ZT Motors was so accommodating and made us feel very special and well taken care of. Thank you ZT Motors for helping us in our time of need!!

Here visiting and the experience was top notch throughout. First call was with Cecil in parts where he ordered the part to arrive overnight. Second, Joleen scheduled an appointment at MY convenience the following day. Lastly, Barbara provided great service the same day. Thank you for helping us out while on vacation!!

I purchased a vehicle from ZT Motors a couple months ago and had some minor electrical issues with the vehicle. The Service Manager Corey and the Sales Manager quickly worked together to have the issued repaired at no cost to me. I recently had an issue with the vehicle and not only are they rectifying the situation, they are doing it with such class. I have never been treated so well and never experienced a dealership let alone a service department with such big hearts. There is no way I could ever say thank you enough however, I thought this would be a good start. Thank you for everything. If you are thinking of purchasing, do not be foolish enough to go anywhere but ZT Motors.

I was given a loner so I can go to work while my car is getting service, I was told it will take couple of days, I was given a call the same day I dropped my car off, 7 minutes before they closed, saying that they have to have their loner car back because my car is ready. (Which is awesome) I called back but he has already left, but he did call me 7mins before they closed. I was so worried I would be charged $80 per day because I wouldn't be able to drop my car off until Monday because of my work schedule (Dropped my car off Friday morning). Luckily they have a service where they swap car at your location. Over all everyone was nice even the guy that called me 7 mins before he left saying he needs his car back.
