GLE vs. X5: Price

The BMW X5 is much more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz GLE. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 starts at $52,200, and the 2018 BMW X5 starts at $57,200. That puts the price gap at about $5,000. With all optional equipment, the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 is about $59,740, which is still much less than the BMW X5’s total equipped price of about $61,650. Of course, as you’re about to see, a higher price doesn’t necessarily mean higher value.

GLE vs. X5: Interior Space

When it comes to engine power, the Mercedes-Benz GLE and BMW X5 are comparable; where they differ is capacities. With the proper equipment, the GLE SUV can tow up to 7,200 pounds. The BMW X5, on the other hand, can tow just 5,952 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—about 3.6 more than what you’ll find in the BMW X5. Union City and Santa Clara families will find a true SUV in the GLE.

GLE vs. X5: Luxuries

When you opt for the 2018 BMW X5 SUV, you’ll get everything from authentic wood trim and 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 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 interior also comes standard with those features. Plus, it includes a handful of driver assists that aren’t standard on the BMW X5, like forward collision warning with automatic braking, a driver attention monitor, and a pre-collision system.
