2022 BMW X5 Vs. 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE — SAV Superiority

When you're searching for a luxury Sports Activity Vehicle® (SAV), a few brand names might come to mind, but for the ultimate satisfaction, nothing beats the 2022 BMW X5. But it may be easier to make a decision with a side-by-side comparison against some of the competition. How does the 2022 BMW stack up to the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE? Let Fields BMW Lakeland show you the BMW difference.

2022 BMW X5 vs. 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE - Performance

BMW and Mercedes-Benz are two of the most popular European luxury car manufacturers, but the SAV selections stand out just as much as the sports cars. The 2022 BMW X5 comes in five different trims and the choice between a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder and a 4.4-liter turbocharged V8, but it also boasts a rip-roaring 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 for extra strength. There's also a plug-in hybrid option with a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder and electric motor, producing 389 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque, which is impressive for its class. 

On the other hand, the base engine of the Mercedes-Benz GLE is a smaller 2.0-liter 255-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine - lower performance compared to the base engine of the 2022 BMX X5.

2022 BMW X5 vs. 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE - Interior and Exterior Features

Both the 2022 BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE feature a 12.3-inch touchscreen interface with their own infotainment platform, both featuring Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity and other modern tech amenities. But when it comes to comfort, the BMW X5 has climate control and cushioning that keep everyone on board cozy. 

However, if you want the ultimate luxury-SAV experience, The Black Vermillion X5 is the limited-edition sportster for you. Its exterior appearance is elevated with the stunning Frozen Black paint and 22-inch M Wheels, as well as the attention-grabbing bright red double kidney grille. The interior is upgraded with BMW Individual Full Merino Black leather - a luxurious and exclusive upholstery reserved for our most notable vehicles.

2022 BMW X5 vs. 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE - Safety 

For the 2022 BMW X5, all trim levels are equipped with an anti-locking braking system, enhanced visibility with a high-tech rear-view camera, and the LATCH anchor child seat system. The BMW X5 also features the Active Driving Assistant with frontal collision warnings, perfect for avoiding accidents and incidents. The Mercedes-Benz GLE offers similar standard features, such as blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert - but it lacks a rear side air bag, which is available for the 2022 BMW X5.
