Dare to Compare the GLE vs. the 2018 BMW X5 and BMW X6

If you’re in the market for a new SUV, the 2018 BMW X5 and X6 may have caught your eye as you narrow down your options. All three vehicles offer high performance and plenty of space. At Mercedes-Benz of Ontario, we think that the new Mercedes-Benz GLE still comes out on top when you put all three vehicles side by side. Run through the detailed chart below and compare features to see which SUV is best for Eastvale and Rancho Cucamonga families.

The GLE is a Winner in its Segment!

While all three vehicles are superior to many on the road, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE base model beats those of the X5 and X6 when you look at cargo capacity, towing capability, price, and advanced safety features—all of which are important factors when shopping for a family-friendly vehicle. Not to mention, the GLE is loaded with advanced driver assistance technology that’s either optional or unavailable for the X5 and X6.
