If you want to dive into the luxury segment, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. BMW X5 are great places to start. And while you’ll see plenty of BMW models in the Long Island, we think there’s a reason that the GLE is one of the top picks in the Plainview area. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is more powerful with richer options to explore, so take a look at our BMW X5 vs GLE guide to see why so many Syosset drivers have chosen this luxury SUV!


Just because you splurge on a luxury car doesn’t mean that you want to break the bank. Between the two models, the GLE has the lower starting price point of $56,200 MSRP*. The X5 starts at a $59,800 MSRP – that’s a price difference of over $3,500! And as you’ll see, the GLE offers quite a bit more in specs and features than the higher-priced X5.

BMW X5 vs GLE: Specs

While the X5 is more powerful to start, the GLE has a wider range of engine options from the fuel-efficient standard inline-4 to the incredible inline-6 turbo. Let’s take a look at the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 vs BMW X5 to start. The base GLE is equipped with a standard 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine with 255 hp, while the BMW X5 has a 335-hp 3.0L 6-cylinder. At higher trims, the GLE 450 4MATIC® offers a whopping 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque with its 3.0L inline-6 turbo engine. Plus, the GLE has the 9G-TRONIC® 9-speed automatic transmission that outperforms the 8-speed automatic transmission of the X5.

BMW X5 vs GLE: Features and Capacity

If you want the flexibility of extra seating, the GLE is the more capable of the two with a seating capacity ranging from 5 to 7 people – while the X5 only offers seating for 5. And sure, you’ll find luxury features on both like:

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

But the GLE also has its own Mercedes-Benz exclusive technology with state-of-the-art features, like the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX). This voice-powered intelligent infotainment system uses natural language understanding to deliver the information that you need with simple voice commands.
