2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2019 BMW X5

When you want to roll through the Cumming area in a brand-new luxury vehicle, there are plenty of intriguing choices to consider. But when you’ve done all the research, you’ve probably landed on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. BMW X5. So, which one truly embodies everything that a luxury car represents? The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is the SUV drivers want with the price, performance, design, and features that are bound to impress. Let’s take a closer look at the BMW X5 vs GLE.

BMW X5 vs. GLE: Pricing

Comparing the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 vs BMW X5, you’ll find two models priced competitively for the luxury market. However, you can pocket a serious chunk of change if you opt for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE has a starting price of $56,200* MSRP, while the X5 price starts at $58,900 MSRP. That’s a difference of $7,000! And as you’ll see, the new GLEoffers the more upscale experience of the two.

BMW X5 vs. GLE: Performance

If the BMW X5 offered better advantages to justify the higher price point, we would gladly recommend it. But the Mercedes-Benz GLE offers not just the better value, but the better performance as well. Let’s compare their powertrains:

  • Mercedes-Benz GLE (base): 255-hp 2.0-Liter Turbocharged Inline 4-Cylinder
  • Mercedes-Benz GLE 580 4MATIC®: 483-hp 4.0-Liter Twin-Turbocharged Mild-Hybrid V8
  • BMW X5 (base): 335-hp 3.0-Liter Inline 6-Cylinder
  • BMW X5 xDrive50i: 465-hp 4.4-Liter Twin-Turbocharged V8

The Mercedes-Benz GLE also has a standard 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission for greater efficiency and smooth shifting on Milton roads, while the BMW X5 merely has an 8-speed automatic transmission.
