Are you looking to upgrade your Scottsdale commute? The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE and 2019 BMW X5 are both worthy options for your next family SUV. The new GLE and X5 both deliver impressive performance and a luxurious ride. Even so, the Mercedes-Benz GLE offers more powerful engines and features you can’t find on the X5 — and for a more reasonable price. Compare these BMW vs. Mercedes-Benz SUVs below to make your decision!

BMW X5 vs. GLE: Pricing

If you want a luxury SUV but also don’t want to spend a fortune, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is the smarter choice. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE price structure starts at $54,250* MSRP, while the 2019 BMW X5 has a starting MSRP of $60,700.

BMW X5 vs. GLE: Performance Specs

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE starts off with 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine that produces 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. The BMW X5 comes standard with a 3.0L 6-cylinder engine that generates 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. In a base model comparison — Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 4MATIC® vs. BMW X5 xDrive40i — the X5 generates more engine power. However, you’ll find more powerful models in the GLE lineup. The GLE 450 4MATIC® is one such model; it gets a 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine that generates 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Behind the wheel of the GLE, you’ll enjoy a smoother ride on Mesa roads with the standard 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission. The BMW X5 SUV’s 8-speed automatic transmission offers fewer gear ratios.

BMW X5 vs. GLE: Interior Space & Features

When you compare the BMW X5 vs. GLE, you’ll notice more room inside the GLE. The BMW X5 seats five, while the Mercedes-Benz GLE seats five to seven people depending on the configuration. Not only is the GLE the better choice for larger families, but it also offers many of the same features found inside the X5 for a lower price, including:

  • Power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • Heated front seats
  • Adjustable steering column
  • Power liftgate
  • Driver seat memory

The Mercedes-Benz GLE also features cutting-edge technologies you simply can’t find inside vehicles not wearing the Three-Pointed Star. One such feature is Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) — an intelligent infotainment system that responds to natural voice commands.

Considering other Mercedes-Benz SUVs with MBUX? Explore the GLS dimensions to find out if the larger model is a perfect fit.
