Let’s say you’re on the hunt for the ultimate luxury coupe. Which is better: the BMW X6 or Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe? While the 2022 BMW X6 has been popping up around Blue Ash, it just can’t keep up with the power and innovation of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Take a look at the BMW X6 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe to see why the GLE surges ahead.



BMW X6 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe: Performance

Which is better: the BMW X6 or Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe when it comes to performance? The BMW X6 may be the newer model, but its components are not as impressive as the AMG® technology found on the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Both models feature 3.0L inline-6 engines, but the GLE features an EQ Boost that helps raise total output to 429 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. The X6 caps out at 335 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® TCT nine-speed of the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is much smoother than the eight-speed Sport Automatic transmission of the BMW X6. Overall, the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is worth every penny.

BMW X6 vs. Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe: Features

You might think a Mercedes-Benz that looks like the BMW X6 on the outside would have similar features on the inside, but that’s not the case. The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe goes above and beyond with premium features that leave the BMW X6 behind, such as:

  • The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe features a 13-Speaker Burmester Surround Sound System with 13 high-quality speakers – including twin FrontBass® subwoofers and a 590-watt 9-channel digital amplifier. You can even upgrade to the 25-speaker Burmester High-End 3D Surround Sound system!
  • Exclusive to the Mercedes-Benz lineup, the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) is a groundbreaking control system that offers an available industry-advancing voice control system. Just say “ “Hey, Mercedes” to direct your SUV with simple voice commands.
  • The signature MB Navigation system uses GPS technology to broadcast 3D maps on a brilliant 12.3-inch high-resolution color touchscreen, and you can use the MBUX system to find directions or Points of Interest along your Sharonville journeys.
