Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X6 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450. 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 X6 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X6 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the BMW X6 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

With the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the BMW X6. The BMW X6 has a little less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X6 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450.
