Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 than in the BMW X4, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X4 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW X4, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X4 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the BMW X4 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW X4 is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The BMW X4 is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Handling
The BMW X4 has the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the BMW X4 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.

Utility
The BMW X4 has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350, making the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The BMW X4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350.
