Dare to Compare Mercedes-Benz GLE

Do You Dare to Compare the GLE 350 vs. the BMW X5?

Compact utility vehicles aren’t all about comfort and luxury. Towing, cargo space, and safety separate the great from the extraordinary. To show you what we mean, we’ve compared the BMW X5 to the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350. Although less expensive, the new GLE proves to be more than a match for the X5, offering considerable strength, efficiency, and space. Check out our chart below to see which is truly the better buy for North Las Vegas families!

The Winner is Clear!

Compared to the GLE 350, the BMW X5 leaves much to be desired. Although both models seat five, the GLE looks and feels roomier, offering plenty of breathing room during daily errands and trips through Boulder City and Green Valley. The GLE SUV’s towing power lets you attach a camper and hit the road, while standard driver assists help you remain aware of your surroundings. The above comparison just goes to show that the pricier model isn’t always the smarter pick!
