The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE has certainly turned heads with all of its upgrades and new features. But how does it hold up against a common competitor? That’s what we are here to find out! Check out the 2020 Mercedes-Benz vs the 2019 BMW X5. Hopefully by the end of this comparison you’ll be able to determine which one is the right fit for you.

First off, we can see that, despite the 2020 GLE being more recently released than the 2019 BMW X5, you can still find yourself paying less for the GLE. The base trim has a starting MSRP* of $53,700, which is significantly less than the $60,700 that is the starting MSRP* of the X5’s base trim. Despite costing significantly less, the GLE doesn’t slack when it comes to standard and available features. Let’s take a closer look at what you can expect to see in this solid vehicle.

Advantages of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE

While you already know about the MBUX® multimedia system, we are still going to tell you about it! We first saw it debut on the 2019 Mercedes-Benz A-Class, but it has quickly gained momentum and is now in the GLE! With a touchscreen display, natural-language voice control, and an AI learning system, this multimedia system is an exciting feature that can change your driving experience.

Likewise, you now have the option to have a greater seating capacity in the GLE than you could previously. Now, you can choose between a 5 or 7-person seating capacity. So, if you don’t want something quite as large as the GLS, but still want to seat the same amount of people, you now have the option to seat 7 people in the GLE.
