Performance, plug-in, or pedestrian: there’s a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE for almost every luxury-SUV buyer.

Pros
Wide palette of body styles, powertrains, trims
GLE Coupe, for the well-to-do contrarian
Powertrain choice abounds
Composed, quiet ride

Cons
AMG = $$$
Not so fuel-efficient
Addled infotainment interface
Odd feature availability
Coupe body costs money, space

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

By: 
usnews.com

All-new model for 2019.Larger body with more interior room and comfort.Broader capability with advanced suspension and interior technology.Part of the first X5 generation introduced for 2019.

Pros
Strong performance from both models
Luxurious and comfortable cabin that lives up to its price tag

Cons
Options can get pricey
Cluttered instrument panel can be distracting

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2019 BMW X5 grows even closer to being the do-it-all vehicle in its family.

Pros
Fluid, fervent powertrains
Posh and plush interior
All-terrain talent, but especially on pavement
Excellent seating and space
X5 M isn’t far behind

Cons
Does little to advance SUV styling
Steering’s minor foibles
High-efficiency models are TBD
Third-row seat’s better reserved for the bigger X7 to come
Gird yourself for the bill
