In this comparison between the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs 2019 BMW X5, it’s back to the basics: Mercedes-Benz vs BMW. Two common competitors always hashing it out and fighting for that top spot. Will it be the newly-redesigned GLE with its bold styling and unmatched interior comfort or the X5 with is signature front fascia and aggressive driver-assistance features?

What’s New in the 2020 GLE?

There are a few things that have changed in the 2020 GLE, so pay close attention. The decision to offer a trim for the GLE with less horsepower and torque (255 hp/273 lb-ft in the 2020 GLE 350 4MATIC®) was an interesting one, but it actually makes sense. Not everyone needs all the extra power that comes with a midsize luxury SUV. Some people are more interested in the cargo space and interior amenities, so for them, it makes sense to lower the engine specs to make the price tag drop while also offering greater fuel efficiency than what a larger SUV usually does. Some of the other highlights in the 2020 GLE include:

  • Mercedes-Benz User Experience System
  • AIRMATIC® suspension
  • Heated/cooled front cupholders
  • 4-zone automatic climate control
  • Multicontour front seats with massage
  • 12.3-inch touchscreen display
  • MB Navigation
  • And much more!
