BMW X7 vs Mercedes-Benz GLE

Go for it all in Jackson, Clinton, and Ridgeland from behind the wheel of a luxury SUV that suits your needs. In this space, the BMW of Jackson team is taking a closer look at a pair of standout luxury SUVs that drivers across Mississippi have come to appreciate.

Our 2020 BMW X7 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLE comparison explores some of the key features and amenities you’ll have access to, talks about vehicle performance, and answers the important question, “What’s my next car going to be?”

BMW X7 vs Mercedes-Benz GLE: Performance

We fully understand luxury drivers demand the most from their vehicles. It’s always nice to be backed by an engine that truly lives up to your expectations. Put your foot down on the accelerator of the 2020 X7, and you’ll find a standard 3.0L V6 engine will power your drives on highways and byways to the tune of 335 horsepower.

Twin-scroll turbocharger technology combines with variable valve control functionality, delivering laser-sharp gear changes as you proceed through the 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission.

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE is powerful in its own right, but it’s not able to match up to the power of the X7. The 2.0L 4-cylinder engine only makes up to 255 horsepower, well off the pace of the X7. Your city adventures and highway travels deserve an engine like the one under the hood of the new BMW X7.

BMW X7 vs Mercedes-Benz GLE: Interior Amenities

Step into the BMW X7 cabin, and you’ll quickly become familiar with the interior amenities that will make your drives more intuitive and engaging. The Mercedes-Benz GLE also offers a long list of interior amenities, but which one is the right SUV for your needs?

Power front seats help you feel comfortable at the beginning of every drive with power side bolsters for thigh support and lumbar support easing your back and spine into the seat. With the standard memory functionality, each SUV can recall the settings you want for every drive, even if someone else takes the wheel for a lengthy period of time.

However, when discussing interior amenities, there’s a standard offering the X7 carries that the GLE does not have, and that’s a panoramic moonroof. While the power tilt/slide roof in the 2020 GLE lets in the light and fresh air, the panoramic roof in the X7 goes a step further by also offering that light and fresh air to riders seated in the back. If you own the Mercedes-Benz GLE, you’re not going to be able to provide that kind of experience for second-row passengers.

X7 vs GLE: Dimensions

Bringing the entire family along for the ride? Perhaps you’re picking up the kids from school, and it turns into a carpool situation, with Bobby and Sally’s friends coming to your place for the afternoon. Be prepared in the BMW X7 that delivers with plenty of space for everyone. Of course, you’ll be comfortable, thanks to 41.9 inches of front-seat headroom that eclipses the 40.5 inches the GLE offers.

Perhaps more importantly, those passengers riding in the back will be comfortable, too. With 39.9 inches of rear headroom, the X7 remains spacious for all passengers. The Mercedes-Benz GLE offers 39.6 inches of headroom in its second row.

2020 BMW X7 vs Mercedes-Benz GLE: The SUV Verdict
