Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2021, BMW reshuffles the X7 lineup by dropping the 456-hp, V-8-powered xDrive50i—the 523-hp M50i continues—and adding the 612-hp Alpina XB7. The latter is the first SUV that the BMW tuning specialist has offered in the U.S. The xDrive40i's powertrain gets a 48-volt starter-generator which, surprisingly, worsens its EPA fuel-economy figures; both its city and highway ratings drop by 1 mpg.

PROS
Powertrains' deliciously smooth power,
interior as quiet as a library but much comfier,
Alpina XB7 is hilariously quick and athletic.

CONS
Excessive body roll around corners,
cabin and cargo spaces are smaller than expected,
power rear seats are S-L-O-W.

The 2021 BMW X7 doesn’t compromise roominess, comfort, performance, or price.

PROS

Balance of comfort and power
Excellent standard features
Large touchscreen
Larger than competition

CONS
Expensive
Small cargo with all seats up
Two trims, essentially

PROS

CONS

The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is unchanged for 2019

Pros
Premium-feeling and well-trimmed interior
Many standard safety and technology features
Surprisingly comfortable ride quality, given its performance abilities
Even the pavement-pounding AMG GLE 63 S is easy to drive around town

Cons
Roofline compromises backseat headroom
Cargo space is similar to that of a compact SUV
Only two trim levels available
Heavy, with minimal off-road capability

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE finishes in the middle of our luxury midsize SUV rankings. It's comfortable and posh, but the GLE doesn’t rank higher because it isn't as athletic or engaging to drive as many class rivals.

Pros
Powerful engines in AMG trims
Lots of features
Elegant interior

Cons
Rivals are more athletic and fuel-efficient
Coupe models have limited cargo space
Unsettled ride over bigger road bumps

By: 
usnews.com

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class can be outfitted to please nearly every luxury-SUV buyer.

Pros
Large variety of body styles and options
Well-done coupe styling
Wealth of powertrain choices
Composed, quiet ride

Cons
Pricey, especially AMG models
Only hybrid models are somewhat efficient
COMAND needs an OVERHAUL
Most popular options locked in expensive package
Coupe loses much-needed utility and costs more
