2017 BMW X6 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class: Compare Cars

When the kids head off to college, you might not mind making the move to something that flaunts your affluence a little more—something just a little bit more ostentatious. That move used to be made by putting a big touring coupe in the garage; but times have changed, and it’s now more rakish utility vehicles with swoopy rooflines—models like the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe.

The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 BMW X6 started the coupe-like SUV trend, and keeps above the fold with potent powertrains. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class pared down its powertrains to gas only or a plug-in hybrid, although it still has plenty of stops in between for luxury buyers.
