GLE vs. X5: Interior Space 

When it comes to engine power, the Mercedes-Benz GLE and BMW X5 are comparable; where they differ is in their capacities. With the proper equipment, the GLE SUV can tow up to 7,700 pounds. The BMW X5, on the other hand, can tow just 6,603 pounds. Comparing cargo volume yields the same result. Folding the GLE SUV’s rear seats down reveals up to 80.3 cubic feet of cargo space — 7 inches more than what you’ll find in the BMW X5. Union City and Milpitas families will find a true SUV in the GLE. 

GLE vs. X5: Luxuries 

When you opt for the 2019 BMW X5 SUV, you’ll get everything from heated front seats to cargo-area tie-downs and a power sunroof. You may think you’re getting a good buy, until you learn the less expensive 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350’s interior also comes standard with those features. Plus, it includes a handful of driver assists that aren’t standard on the BMW X5, like a driver attention monitor
