2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. 2019 Cadillac XT5

The Mercedes-Benz GLE is consistently a top contender among the luxury SUV segment. Aside from the full redesign of the 2019 model, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz GLE has been announced to be more refined and greater than ever.

The Cadillac’s entry to luxury SUVs is the 2019 Cadillac XT5. It is very much a modern vehicle that is bigger than many compact luxury SUVs that it is often compared to. Let us compare it to the all-new GLE as it also displays a nice mix of features and luxuries.

Design & Style

The styling approach for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is a great balance of sophistication and rugged appeal. The grille trim varies depending on the trim package. What is very prominent on its exterior is the massive three-pointed star that is fastened at the sinuous grille. On its interior is a sublime display of luxury. Trim surfaces vary from glossy, matte, or aluminum finish. This gives the buyers a choice for the level of sophistication they want.

The unique styling of the new XT5 is prominent on its styling elements. The swept-back headlights and vertical LED design are nice. The rest of the design, however, is bland, unlike other Cadillac vehicles that are boldly designed.

Technology & Safety

As a technology leader, the brand made sure to put premium infotainment on the GLE. The MBUX system takes center stage and comes well-applauded for its functionality. Standard driver aids are plenty and they are pretty useful in stop-and-go traffic.

The infotainment system of the XT5 is better than previous versions. It is more responsive and the touchscreen menu has a smoother flow. The biggest disappointment is the voice control feature as it tends to get faulty.

Performance

The base model of the new GLE has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine for a 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. It provides sufficient power to accelerate effortlessly. The brake system is intuitive and steering effort is light. The GLE also stays flat and stable even when driving at higher speeds. It is fun to drive on winding roads as it will not make the passengers feel woozy.

All of the four trims of the XT5 have a 3.6-liter V6 engine for a 310 hp and 271 lb-ft of torque. This powerful engine can deliver a reassuring drive as it easily steers and has a strong grip on the road.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Cadillac XT5 has a strong engine but that is the only thing that makes it special. It failed miserably on the tech front and the design is forgettable. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE, on the other hand, is exciting from the styling quality down to its performance. It is easy to see why everyone is excited to get their hands on the newest GLE.
