A new luxury SUV should come with everything you desire, but in this competitive segment, only one model can reign supreme. Many drivers end up comparing the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. BMW X5, and since the former wins out on pricing, features, and performance, it’s easy to see why so many are heading into Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield!  Get the facts on the popular BMW X5 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLE match-up below, and then drive in from Westport or Norwalk to see the winner in person.

Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. BMW X5: Price, Features, and Value

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is available for as little as $54,250* MSRP in its baseline configuration. That already gives it an edge over the X5, which costs $59,800 MSRP to start. For this reason, it may be surprising to learn that the Mercedes-Benz GLE delivers a superior feature suite. Here’s where it wins out:

  • Looking for a gesture-activated hands-free power liftgate? Only the GLE SUV includes one as a standard feature.
  • The GLE is one of the first models to receive MBUX–Mercedes-Benz User Experience–a new infotainment system powered by Natural Language Understanding.
  • When you compare the BMW X5 vs. GLE, you’ll see they both are available with a third row of seating, but since the Mercedes-Benz has such a strong advantage in pricing, it’s the preferable option for families that need to secure more space.

Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. BMW X5: Performance

Horsepower and torque aren’t the only numbers that you should look at when comparing the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 vs. BMW X5. These models are competitive in their base trims, and both offer an array of engines that are sure to satisfy. If you’re still interested in playing a numbers game, you should know that the new GLE SUV has an edge in several important areas:

  • Would you rather have an 8-speed automatic transmission or a 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission? The latter is standard across the GLE range, and provides a superior drive.
  • At 70.7 inches tall, the driver in the GLE will sit higher up than the driver of the BMW X5. What’s more, since the GLE is just 76.7 inches wide, it’s easier to park on the streets or parking lots of Weston and Fairfield.
  • Last but not least, we should note that the GLE SUV offers a very tight turning radius, at 19.7 feet. The X5 isn’t as agile with its turning radius of 20.6 cubic feet.
