None, because you clearly haven’t yet decided what you want the car to actually be good for.
The options you listed are a large crossover which comes with either FWD or AWD which can cope with some reasonable off-roading and towing but only if it’s the AWD variant, a RWD saloon car which is not designed for any kind of off-roading, and a medium-sized AWD crossover which can go off road but is mostly intended for roads.
Cars are just tools for a job, and your selection is exactly like asking to choose between a spoon, knife or a fork without knowing what you plan to eat.
All that is true is the Merc was built after Mercedes learned to make reliable vehicles once more. But BMW still haven’t learned that lesson and their vehicles generally are of far below average reliability, and generally get much worse after the warranty has expired. BMW models also tend to be very expensive to maintain and repair: so are many Mercedes models, but they go wrong less often than usual for newer models like the GLA, and parts for the unreliable older models can be comparatively cheap by luxury car standards.
The X3 is one of BMWs even less reliable models.

normally, i'd suggest mercedes … however, suv all have higher centers of gravity … therefore, have propensity to roll over when out of control.
