2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV vs. 2018 BMW X5


Sensible Safety Technology

While the BMW X5 sports smart safety features such as a surround-view camera system, it simply doesn’t match up to the smart safety technology of the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV has the following safety features standard or available, and the BMW X5 simply doesn’t:

  • PRESAFE® – in the unlikely event of a collision, PRESAFE® adjusts the front passenger seat, and can tighten front seatbelts, to ensure your safety.
  • Available DISTRONIC PLUS® Intelligent Cruise Control – this feature adapts your set speed to the vehicle ahead, ideal for crowded drives to either San Francisco or Sacramento.
  • ATTENTION ASSIST®—detects tiredness by helpfully monitoring driving behavior. If you start to nod off, visual and audible warnings will emit.

Performance versus Price

It’s true: both the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV and the 2018 BMW X5 have 4MATIC® AWD available. And while it’s also true that the 2018 BMW X5 has a 4.4-Liter V8, 567-hp engine, compared to the 3.5-Liter V6, 302-hp engine of the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV, a 302-hp, V6 engine is nonetheless muscular enough for your Napa cruises.

Plus, the MSRP of the Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV $52,200* is significantly cheaper than the BMW X5 M, whose MSRP is $100,700.
