Interior of the 2018 BMW X5

If you’re on the hunt for a luxury midsize SUV, then you’re probably looking for a vehicle that offers a wide range of features in addition to exhilarating performance capabilities. At BMW of Schererville, we believe that the 2018 BMW X5 can supply what you’re looking for and more! Of course, we understand that you might want to see some evidence before you make up your mind, so we’re comparing the X5 to the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class.

We’ll get things going by seeing how these two SUVs perform. The 2018 X5 is equipped with a standard 3.0L turbocharged 6-cylinder powertrain that generates a stellar 295 lb.-ft. of torque for a ride that won’t fail to get your adrenaline pumping. To compare, the 2018 GLE-Class only manages to produce 273 lb.-ft. of torque with its standard 3.5L V6 engine. To really up the ante, you can upgrade to a 4.4L turbo V8 system in the X5 to boost your levels to an incredible 445-hp and 479 lb.-ft. of torque. If you go with the SUV from Mercedes, you won’t have any additional engine upgrades at your disposal, limiting your ability to conquer I-65.

Both the 2018 BMW X5 and Mercedes GLE-Class offer you cabins that are packed with myriad technological advancements. However, the SUV from BMW goes just a bit further to give it the edge in this category. You can choose to upgrade to a premium audio system in either vehicle, but you’ll find that the available 16-speaker configuration in the X5 is a bit more capable than the 14-speaker setup in the GLE-Class. Additionally, the BMW Navigation System comes standard and provides you with a 10.2-inch high-resolution screen, 3D maps, voice-command system, and more, to take it easy to reach new destinations. Though the Mercedes also has navigational capabilities, you’ll need to spring for a more expensive trim to enjoy its benefits.

What’s better than having a relaxing place to unwind after a long day at work? If you go with the BMW X5, you’ll get to enjoy a variety of amenities whenever you’re behind the wheel! While the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is only equipped with a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat at the base trim, the X5 really goes the extra mile by providing you with a standard 14-way adjustable option, so getting into a comfortable position is a breeze. In addition, with a generous 39.8 inches of front headroom, getting in and out of your ride won’t be difficult. On the other hand, with just 38.9 inches of headroom in the front seat of the GLE-Class, taller drivers might have a bit of an issue.

In a close battle between the 2018 BMW X5 vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class near Merrillville, IN, the X5 ended up at the top of the podium.

I can’t stress how great this dealership was during my most recent visit. From my initial call to set the appointment to dropping off the loaner the process was seamless. Nick, (my consultant) was absolutely wonderful, he kept me updated throughout the entire process, and worked diligently with my warranty company to get my claim approved. Ultimate driving machine, and an awesome team to service them! Thanks Nick and team!!
