2015 BMW X6 M vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class than in the BMW X6 M, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Mercedes-Benz GL-Class offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X6 M, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X6 M, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW X6 M will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X6 M will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X6 M is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW X6 M is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X6 M does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Handling
The BMW X6 M has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class is clearly the choice over the BMW X6 M for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X6 M greatly out-muscles the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Utility
The BMW X6 M has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X6 M has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Warranty
The BMW X6 M comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.
