2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2020 BMW X5

Luxury car buyers looking for a new SUV for their drives around the Nepean-Barrhaven area will want to get behind the wheel of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE and the 2020 BMW X5. Both vehicles offer optimal comfort, lots of high-end technologies, and high-performance engines. However, the new Mercedes-Benz GLE has stronger engine options and more features. Compare the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 vs. BMW X5 below to see which is the better option for your daily commute.

BMW X5 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLE: Price

When you compare the Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. BMW X5 price you will see that the former is the more cost-effective SUV, which makes it the right choice for families in the Orleans area who are on a tight budget. The GLE starts at $64,700 MSRP*, while the X5 starts at $73,500 MSRP*. 

BMW X5 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLE: Performance

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is equipped with the standard 2.0 inline-4 turbo engine that generates 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, while the BMW X5 has a six-cylinder petrol engine that produces 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. However, when you compare the Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. BMW X5 base models, the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4MATIC® vs. BMW X5 xDrive40i, the Mercedes-Benz engine creates far more power with its 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine that produces 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. 

The Mercedes-Benz GLE also provides a smooth ride on the roads thanks to the 9G-TRONIC® nine-speed automatic transmission. This provides faster gear shifts than the BMW X5 SUV’s eight-speed automatic transmission. 

BMW X5 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLE: Interior

Compare the BMW X5 vs. GLE, and drivers quickly notice that the Mercedes-Benz GLE can seat five to seven (optional) passengers, and the BMW X5 provides seating for up to five. Not only are you getting more interior space, but you are also getting more features for a more affordable price point. Both vehicles offer:

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

The Mercedes-Benz GLE also features technologies that can’t be matched by the BMW X5. This includes Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX), a voice-powered intelligent infotainment system with natural language understanding.
