2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 43 4MATIC® Coupe vs 2018 BMW X6 Coupe

2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 43 4MATIC® Coupe vs 2018 BMW X6 Coupe

When drivers think of a “coupe”, their first thought is usually a sleek two-door sports car. However, a coupe can be really anything that has a fixed roofline and two doors. These two models are an exception to the rule, however, as they have four doors. Performance-seekers rejoice: Mercedes-Benz and BMW have unique options for the maverick inside you. Check out the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLE 43 4MATIC® Coupe vs 2018 BMW X6 Coupe!

Here comes the most important aspect to consider: performance. While the two models are very similar in size and appearance, they are quite different when it comes to power output. The turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine in the AMG GLE 43 4MATIC® Coupe gives it an edge over the X6 Coupe, which has a 3.0L engine but with an inline-6 so it delivers less power. You’ll see in the comparison chart below just how much separation there is in performance.
