Are you shopping for a luxury SUV for your commutes around Providence? The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE and 2019 BMW X5 are likely on your radar. Both of these SUVs are known for their powerful engines, roomy interiors, and state-of-the-art technologies. However, the new GLE goes a bit further with higher engine specs and features you can’t find elsewhere. Compare the Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. BMW X5 below.
The Mercedes-Benz GLE is less expensive than the BMW X5 SUV, meaning it’s the better choice for East Greenwich families who aren’t looking to break the bank but still want a luxury ride. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE starts at $56,200* MSRP, while the 2019 BMW X5 has a starting MSRP of $60,700.
Compare the 2020 GLE vs. 2020 BMW X5 directly to find out how new model fits into this matchup.
When you compare the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 4MATIC® vs. BMW X5 xDrive40i, the BMW initially delivers more power. The base-level GLE gets a 2.0L inline-4 turbo that generates 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, while the BMW X5 gets a 3.0L 6-cylinder that produces 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. The GLE family, however, brags higher tier models that are much more powerful than the X5. The GLE 450 4MATIC®, for example, sports a 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine rated at 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the GLE offers a wider range of gear ratios with its 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission. This makes it a smoother operator on East Greenwich roads than the BMW X5 with its 8-speed automatic.
Cranston families will enjoy more room inside the GLE. The Mercedes-Benz GLE seats five to seven (optional) people; the BMW X5’s seating capacity stops at five. Not only is the GLE the better choice for larger families, but it comes with many of the same features as the BMW X5 for a lower price, including:
What’s more, the 2020 GLE is equipped with technologies you can only experience at the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz — one of which is Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX). This voice-powered system delivers intelligent infotainment services with a natural language understanding feature.
In a Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. BMW X5 comparison, it’s easy to see that the GLE SUV holds the ace with its range of engine power, price, and features.
