2022 BMW X5 vs. 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE in Edmonton, AB

BMW's X series of upscale SUVs has entered the 2022 model year, and with the beloved X5 now a member of our new inventory, we took the opportunity to see how it fares against a popular rival in the Mercedes-Benz GLE. Whether you hang your hat in Edmonton, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, Sherwood Park, St. Albert, Beaumont, Leduc, or Devon, AB, find out which of these luxury models gets the nod in the 2022 BMW X5 vs. 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLE battle below, and feel free to visit Edmonton BMW online to compare other models to our new BMW SUV.


As per tradition, the new BMW X5 offers several refined engine options, each more robust than the next. A base 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 packs a whopping 335 horsepower, with its plug-in hybrid and twin-turbo V8 variations netting 389 and a jaw-dropping 523 horsepower, respectively. Each of these configurations includes a smooth-shifting eight-speed transmission, and no matter what you choose to put under its hood, the 2022 BMW X5 will treat you to quick acceleration, stable handling, and communicative steering for a ride that's both refined and responsive. Like the X5, the 2022 Mercedes GLE offers several engines of its own, with the base turbo-four packing a full 80 horses less than the X5. While the mid-size GLE is pretty quick off the line, its ride remains a little stiff, especially if you go for one of its larger wheel designs.

    Interior & Exterior Style

    Both these new luxury SUVs can turn some heads, with the 2022 X5 boasting an exterior design that's both sporty and sophisticated in equal measure. This BMW's bodywork and wheel designs are both exceptionally sleek, while its hood is sculpted and perfectly paired with a bold grille for a striking front end. The 2022 Mercedes GLE, on the other hand, is a little more understated, as its rear end doesn't make much of an impression and its bodywork is clean. Other than its attractive front end, this Mercedes SUV falls a little on the subtle side, perhaps a little too subtle.

    These two SUVs' interiors both offer plenty of space for both front and rear passengers, with both offering an optional third row for those in the habit of taking trips with family and friends. While the X5 and GLE each boast class-competitive cargo capacity, our BMW SUV offers a luxury cabin unmatched by its rivals. Between its opulent materials, various charging ports, and numerous amenities, the 2022 X5 is as versatile as they come. A memory function for the power driver's seat comes standard, as do heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, and LED lighting that you can customize to your liking, while massaging seats and a refined leather dash are available for added luxury. As for the 2022 GLE, this Mercedes' interior is upscale in its own right, but its available leather, wood, and leather trims will quickly jack up its price tag.

    Safety Features

    The 2022 BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE enter the new model year with solid safety and crash-test ratings, with both offering various driver-assist technologies for confident commuting. The 2022 GLE offers various basics in its standard advanced safety suite, but the BMW X5 gets the nod yet again, with its standard features including blind-spot monitoring, a rear cross-traffic alert that keeps an eye on approaching vehicles while you reverse, and a forward-collision warning system that detects nearby pedestrians. In short, the mid-size 2022 X5 has everything you'll need to take the wheel with a clear head, and you won't have to pay a premium for it.
