Another week, another new Driven Web Series 2015 episode, powered by Petronas Primax 95 with Advanced Energy Formula. This time, we’re looking at the three latest premium crossovers in the market – the F48 BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA and the facelifted Audi Q3.
The rejuvenated X1 is BMW’s second stab at this market, this time based on a front-wheel drive platform and angled more towards young families rather than driving enthusiast. It’s now bigger and more comfortable than ever, but can the new Munich SUV beat its rivals from Stuttgart and Ingolstadt?
In Mercedes-Benz’s corner stands the GLA 250 4Matic, available here in Malaysia in AMG Line guise. This one is perhaps the direct opposite of the X1, directing its focus on dynamism over comfort. In the middle sits the Audi Q3, in its latest facelifted form. So, which German crossover is best? Find out our verdict in the video above.
Driven Web Series 2015 will come to an end next week, but fret not, as we will be ending the season with a big bang. Curious to find out how the RM1.2 million BMW i8 would fare against the similarly-priced Mercedes-AMG GT S and the Jaguar F-Type R, right here in Malaysia? Stay tuned for our explosive season finale on December 9!
