2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2019 BMW X1

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is a no-compromise luxury crossover. It offers both comfort and performance in a nice premium package. It is not surprising that it is high above on top of its segment. The 2020 redesign is more refined, feature-packed, and guarantees greater capabilities.

The 2019 BMW X1 earned one of the top spots among luxury crossovers. It is a well-deserved place because it does have all the goods needed to be a proper luxury SUV. It can’t be avoided, though, that people will ask where it falls short as it cannot beat the GLE. Here is a comparison to understand why.

Design & Style

The 20th-century styling cues of the latest GLE is prominent on its exterior. The fender flares gave it a rugged look that works really well. As for the interior, the ambient lighting of the GLE is a whole new level of class and sophistication. The constant color rotation instantly changes the mood as it lights up everything on the cabin.

Compared to the GLE, the latest X1 is not expressive with its design and styling. The result is a dated exterior that looks plain. Inside is also disappointing with the use of low-quality materials.

Technology & Safety

A premium set of features is the only acceptable infotainment for the GLE. The latest MBUX system headlines the audio and navigation systems. As expected, many find this innovation functional. The driver aids are also just as impressive and are very handy during a stop-and-go road condition.

The X1 offers plenty of connectivity options for its infotainment. It already has built-in navigation but you may choose to use other apps especially that it can connect to a variety of devices and operating systems.

Performance

The GLE has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine under the hood of the base model. It can get up to 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. An all-wheel drive is optional but the standard rear-wheel drive can deliver a smooth and silent performance. Although it is not marketed as an off-roader, the GLE can comfortably climb obstacles if needed. It is equipped with a traction control system that is useful for off-roading capabilities.

The base model for the X1 also has a 2.0-liter engine. It is turbocharged to deliver 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The driving dynamics of the X1 is excellent and power delivery is smooth and consistent.

The Bottom Line

Other than excellent performance, there is nothing more to love on the 2019 BMW X1. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE had no problem outshining the X1 because it presents itself as a well-rounded luxury crossover. Aside from an admirable exterior, the GLE is packed with all the tech features you would love to have in an SUV. The road performance is also commendable and is better and stronger than the X1.
