2019 BMW X5 vs 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class


A completely redesigned version of its earlier model, the 2019 BMW X5 is proud to provide a powerful V8 engine. It also has an easy-to-use infotainment system. Meanwhile, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class decided to discontinue its plug-in hybrid. The elegant interior remains as its selling point.

Design & Style

Featuring a set of sporty 19-inch wheels, you will see how the 2019 BMW X5 manages to live up to the expectations of its followers when it comes to sturdy construction. It has also been fitted with modern fog lights, together with a power liftgate, panoramic sunroof, and adaptive LED headlights. Its front and back seats offer plenty of room to move around as well.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, on the other hand, is a luxury SUV that is expected to impress in terms of fresh styling and excellent cabin materials. This car does have all those elements. What it lacks, however, is the more rugged styling of the X5.

Technology & Safety

There are plenty of technologies to look forward to in the 2019 BMW X5. Topping the list is the inclusion of the 12.3-inch touchscreen display which has been made to support functions for its iDrive infotainment system. This new setup may require some degree of learning for first-time users, but it still remains one of the easiest to comprehend with in its class. Safety features include forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and rearview camera, together with front and rear parking sensors, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class carries the COMAND infotainment system that only has support from a seven-inch screen. It has been gifted with the usual HD radio, two USB ports, and a Bluetooth interface. Safety wise, features included in this modern ride are the crosswind assist, drowsiness monitor, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.


Running on a V6 engine, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class maximizes up to 329 horsepower in terms of results. The 2019 BMW X5 is not left behind since it is capable of producing up to as much as 330lb-ft of torque and 335 horsepower. The BMW is more fuel efficient too with numbers of 20mpg and 26mpg for city and highway driving, whereas figures posted by the GLE reach only up to 17mpg and 23mog for city and highway driving, respectively.

The Bottom Line

While there are some aspects of the GLE that make it stand out, it is still obvious that there is much more to love in the X5. This car oozes with class, innovativeness, and power. It is the winner this time around.
