Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The two-door "90" body style sees increased availability for 2021 and now comes in base, S, X, First Edition, and new X-Dynamic trims. Speaking of X-Dynamic, this new trim level is also now available on the four-door "110" model and provides the appearance items from the top-spec X without the expensive off-road-tech features, such as the adjustable air suspension and active differential.

PROS
Legendary off-road abilities,
smooth on-road ride,
nicely outfitted cabin.

CONS
Six-cylinder engine isn't as perky as expected,
best accessories and options add a lot to the bottom line,
brakes are difficult to smoothly modulate.

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:

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
