2020 Mercedes- Benz GLE vs. 2020 BMW X5

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE has all the features that drivers will need the most from a luxury crossover SUV. It is a top-rated luxury SUV because each model year has more features, refinement, and capabilities that are reserved only for top-tiered vehicles. This model year is a fully-redesigned version and it gets the latest gadgets and upgrades that make any Mercedes-Benz vehicles special.

The 2020 BMW X5 has long evolved from a sporty vehicle to one that conforms to the standards among SUV vehicles. It is now nicely balanced with the right amount of agility, rich styling, and a comprehensive set of the infotainment systems.

Design & Style

Setting design standards is nothing new to the GLC. It started the segment, after all, so it is not a surprise that it will always lead the way. It has a well-toned exterior with broad rear shoulders. Aside from looking sleek, the GLC is designed with special attention to aerodynamics. A few details were added to reduce noise and make it fuel efficient but without compromising the good looks. The cabin is a beautiful work of art and it grows even lovelier at night time with the 64-color LED ambient lighting.

There is not much of a difference on the new X5’s exterior from the previous version. Most of the improvements were applied on the cabin where synthetic leather upholstery is used. This is a disappointment since luxury buyers are not after synthetic materials.

Technology & Safety

The latest MBUX on the GLE works like a real human assistant. It recognizes natural voice commands, listens, and dutifully learns about your preferences. If you prefer using the touchscreen display for controls, the 12.3-inch console can be accessed in a variety of ways. You can pinch on the screen, tap, swipe, or write directly on the display.

The iDrive infotainment system of the X5 is advanced but it requires a lot of time to get familiar with. There is a steep learning curve on the confusing array of menus, voice and gesture control, and even its handwriting recognition feature.


The GLE is powered by a 255 hp, turbocharged engine. Its handling, steering, and acceleration prowess are remarkable. It is fast, flexible and versatile so you can take charge of the car every single time. Set the performance character that fits your personality using the Dynamic Select feature.

There is plenty of power on the X5 with its 340 hp engine. Although it has a lot of power, the X5 has less impressive handling and steering. The drive feels soft and floaty, especially when driving around corners.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 BMW X5 cannot beat the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE because it failed to be the luxury SUV that many people expect it to be. The GLE looks, feels, and performs like a true luxury vehicle which is why it is the best one to have.
