The AMG GLE 43 is slightly more powerful, increasing engine output from 362 horsepower to 385 hp. Otherwise, the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is unchanged for 2018.

PROS
Multiple available powertrains make each model distinct
Interior is quiet, upscale and roomy
Abundant list of standard safety, tech and luxury features
AMG variants are seriously quick

CONS
Not many places to store small personal items
Punishing ride on AMG models, with little benefit to handling
Ride quality with the standard suspension isn't as comfy as we expect
Base V6's acceleration is merely adequate

For 2018, the E-Class coupe and convertible are fully redesigned and now match the sedan and wagon, which were redesigned last year. There are also some new trim levels, including the E400 sedan and high-performance AMG E63 S sedan and wagon.

PROS
Exquisite cabin that sets new standards for design and comfort
Available semiautonomous driver assistance technology
Vast array of personalization options
Desirable high-horsepower AMG models are back

CONS
Standard suspension can feel stiff over rough surfaces
Sedan's cargo capacity is small for the class

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class goes to excess--the right kinds of excess--to preserve its best-of status.

Pros
Elegant sedans and wagons, pretty two-doors
Turbo-4, turbo-6, turbo-8
Beautifully composed cabin
All the safety tech
Level 2 semi-autonomous driving

Cons
COMAND infotainment is kludgy
Slim trunk space on two-doors
Powertrain noise more prominent
We’re still not cool with standard synthetic leather
